If there is any indication from today's decision by the Supreme Court to hear arguments about the threat of partisan gerrymandering to the health of our democracy, politicians on both sides of the aisle should be worried about their growing and excessive use of this practice as a political weapon of choice to maintain political power at the expense of voters.

For 63 years, Congress has barred entities organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code — which includes the entire charitable sector, as well as churches, mosques, and synagogues — from engaging in partisan political activities.
