GOP Could Use Van Hollen's Plan to Make Redistricting Fair and Legal

"Wisconsin Attorney General Van Hollen - - as signaled Thursday by Senate Co-Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald - - communicated a plan Friday afternoon on behalf of the redistricting defendants (the state) in response to a petition filed earlier in the day by the winning defendants," reads the Political Environment.

A new plan is a good idea; how about the panel with the consent of the Republicans and Democrats take this opportunity to accept compliance with its judicial order by instituting a non-partisan approach to redistricting, ala Iowa's.

This can happen now, but the judicial panel's Memorandum, Opinion and Order make clear it must happen fast.

Democrats will go along. What say you, Republicans?
