Re "A new political landscape,"
editorial, Oct. 23
Supporters of Proposition 77 endlessly repeat that legislative districts are "rigged" for one party. They don't tell you that in 2003, Republicans Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom McClintock outpolled Democrat Cruz Bustamante in 77 of 106 legislative districts supposedly "rigged" to be impossible for a Democrat to lose. Perhaps touting the number of "rigged" Democratic districts won by Bustamante does not make for a very compelling slogan (29 out of 106 -- feel the outrage).
