What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

It's redistricting time! Hooray!

The Trib explains:

The Legislature’s Redistricting Committee will hold a field hearing at 6 p.m. Friday at the Lehi Junior High School Auditorium, 700 E. Cedar Hollow Drive, in Lehi.
This public hearing is the first of 17 scheduled around the state.

Utah, like every other state, is required to redraw its political voting maps every 10 years. The official purpose is to preserve the concept of “one person, one vote” by ensuring equal populations in every district.


What could possibly go wrong? Wait...what's that, buried at the very bottom of the Trib's article? What's the very last sentence in the entire piece?

The panel is comprised of 14 Republican lawmakers and five Democrats.


I'm sorry, what was that?
