Yes, which is impossible.  Ours was redone by a “non partisan” group but it was clearly stacked.

I may be an innocent, but I believe it possible.  Maybe even by computer, if you can trust the programmers to set the parameters correctly.

And that's why it ends up being cruelly gerrymandered.  There needs to be a totally independent organization assigned to draw the Congressional districts.  Not sure how we could achieve it.
