Loebs: Redistricting like Dr. Frankenstein’s task

Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs told redistricters today, “The last commission ended with a plan that hacked Twin Falls county into four pieces. Well, that's clearly unconstitutional, because Twin Falls County, based on its size, must be divided, but must be divided only one time. … If you make a third district, that's clearly unconstitutional.” He said he was up late recently watching the movie “Frankenstein” and thinking about redistricting - Dr. Frankenstein didn't do a bad job stitching his monster together, Loebs said, but he settled for a damaged brain after dropping it on the floor. “I urge you guys not to settle, to stay in as long as you have to stay in to get it done,” he said, “because this is very important for the whole state of Idaho.”
