In a decision that will have ramifications for Kansas' voters for a decade, Kansas' Supreme Court reversed the district court's ruling the state’s recently enacted congressional map constituted a partisan gerrymander and intentionally diluted the voting power of racial minorities, violating the Kansas Constitution.
Paul Smith, senior vice president of Campaign Legal Center, issued the following statement after oral arguments at the Kansas Supreme Court regarding a congressional gerrymander concluded.
In holding the limit unconstitutional, the Court’s majority dismissed widely shared and self-evident concerns regarding the corruptive potential of post-election candidate loan repayments.
