Yes, Democrats do it. Considering that Republicans do it a LOT more, they would be stupid not to in the few states where they can. It would be far better if all states went to non-partisan commissions to draw minimally-convoluted districts. There are some very good computer programs that do this, while still respecting communities, etc. Ideally, every state would have a party split of representatives that reflected the voter split.

This is old, but still pretty nice: Busting the both sides do it myth


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
