Lowenstein-Woocher Team Up to Reverse Prop. 11's Citizen Redistricting Commission?

My internet connection is not letting me download the full measure, but it looks like my good friend Dan is the proponent of this measure going into circulation, with Fred Woocher providing the legal support. Capital Notes suggests the tack is to focus on the costs of having redistricting done by the commission. That may be smart politics, but I'm sure that's not what's motivating Dan and whoever else (I would guess organized Democratic party interests) is behind this new measure: it is to keep the power with the (Democratically-controlled) legislature.
