Maryland Democrats rig elections better than GOP

Your recent editorial regarding voter ID laws ("The phantom menace of voter fraud," Feb. 27) rightly criticized the Republicans in the legislature for trying to win votes by tinkering with the voting process. The attempt is clumsy and obvious. They should learn from the Democrats who accomplish the same end much more deftly. They carved legislative and congressional districts in which the Republican votes will be counted but just won't count.

There is more than one way to rig an election.
