Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called Maryland's congressional redistricting map "outrageously unconstitutional" in a recent interview. 

"I just read a newspaper article the other day about the Maryland redistricting, which is designed to help the Democrats," Stevens said in an interview with SCOTUSBlog. "That's outrageously unconstitutional in my judgment."

Stevens,91, said gerrymandering is a nationwide problem.

“Nowadays, the political parties acknowledge that they are deliberately trying to gerrymander the districts in a way that will help the majority,” he said.
