Congressional district gerrymandering is bad enough as it is, now Senator Flake is essentially proposing judicial gerrymandering. If the government would do it's job and fill the court vacancies across the country, perhaps we wouldn't have such a back load of cases. The 9th circuit is clearly very large, but let's see a bill proposing a split that makes sense geographically. This bill is ill-timed and reeks of partisan bias and political motive. Shame on Sen. Flake for the proposal, and Sen. McCain for endorsing it.
