The Appearance of Propriety

Not yet content with having a greater probability of dying in office than losing a reelection bid, here's a really bad idea to help cement incumbents of both parties even more firmly in place than they are now:

Like minority parties in several states, Florida Democrats want to change the way political boundaries are drawn by taking the process out lawmakers' hands and giving the responsibility to an independent commission appointed equally by both parties.

Funny how this never occurred to the Democrats when they weren't in the minority.
