Federal Judge James J. Wynn was appointed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals by President Barack Obama in August of 2010. Wynn apparently imagines that he has the authority to order the elected state legislature of North Carolina to redraw its Congressional Districts because in his opinion they unfairly favor Republicans.
Judge Wynn even imagines that a partisan gerrymander runs contrary to the Constitution because it violated equal protection and due process clauses. But can anyone imagine that any judge appointed by a Democratic president would make the same argument against any state legislature controlled by Democrats that they cannot draw a map that might favor of their party? Wynn is a classic example of an intellectually dishonest jurist.
