Response to Still In Wisconsin (Reply #11)

19. It's gerrymandering, the gift that keeps on giving

...to the right-wing a-holes that engineered it all.

I'm in Pennsylvania and we have the same problem. Congressional districts have been gerrymandered to death for the last 30 + years while Democrats didn't do a thing to stop it. Now we're seeing the results of their sneaky underhanded activities. It's how we got the GOP running our state legislature and it's how we ended up with a nasty right-wing Republican Senator (Toomey) last year.

Gerrymandering has to end in every state, and the time to start is now. Get ready for the next US Census in 2020. That's when they re-draw the districts, after each census. In Pennsylvania (and hopefully Wisconsin) the Dems won't be looking the other way next time. We'll be right on top of it.

I don't have a link to the same thing in Wisconsin, but I'll bet there is one.
