1. ummmmm...

I served on the County redistricting committee. The software provided was pretty accurate and jived very will with the County maps. In the city we were able to confirm everything by GIS....

I don't know how there could be discrepancies between the actual boundaries and census data.

4. Looks like it's become an error in translation

perhaps between programs and/or databases.

Someone has a number or a comma out of place in a column of data so some people are sorting to Africa instead of the proper districts.

2. FUBAR, SNAFU, CLUSTERFUCK

Anytime anybody mentions NEOCON CLERK KATHY democracy goes tilt! I have no problem understanding anything that the NEOCON RAT TURDS has iniated and/or touched turns into a CLUSTERFUCK because their sole aim is to dismantle America as we know it. They hate the US Constitution, lie, cheat, steal and kill everything except the fetus.

3. Sheboygan in Africa?




"We're not only changing and moving districts, we're changing the system beneath it," said Julie Glancey, the Sheboygan County clerk. "We had many, many voters who showed up (on the computer map) on the coast of Africa and we had to drag them back to the state of Wisconsin and put them where they belonged."
