How can you call it mostly fair when repubs are admitting that they really gerrymandered the districts?

Salt Lake City, UT

This column would be so much better without Webb. His negative, deeply partisan perspective and childish digs at the opposition are not interesting or helpful.

Webb's denunciation of "do-gooder" groups worries me -- should I stop trying to do good?

Sandy, UT

It is gerrymandering plain and simple. I dont care that salt lake county gets split up but it shouldn't be placed with saint george, vernal and other areas who have different issues.

Have you seen the maps? there should be districts based on counties and north south geography.

A gerrymander can only be seen through the political eye of the beholder.

South Jordan, UT

Keep your head in the sand Webb, or wherever else it might be. This is geryymandering at its very worst. This state needs an enima to flush the GOP out of it. Your next congressman Karl Wimmer is exactly what you need Utah. Another Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh wannabe. His head is probably in the same place.

Salt Lake City, Utah

"An overlooked element of the redistricting controversy is that new maps for the Utah Senate and House districts passed with near unanimous votes, from both parties."

Has anybody bothered to find out whether that quote is accurate? If it is the Democrats don't have a leg to stand on.

Yes, gerrymandering may be in the "eye of the beholder" or both parties do it. I just want to know if this group of Republicans have the moral courage to end it. Or will it be business as usual?
