MADISON- This week, a federal trial is taking place to determine the legality of the legislative district maps drawn by Wisconsin Republicans in 2011 that have been deemed “the worst gerrymander in modern American history.” Rep. Mark Spreitzer (D-Beloit) made the following statement about the trial:

“To create and protect their own political advantage, Republicans drew some of the most gerrymandered legislative maps in the entire country. By ‘cracking and packing’ certain groups into different districts, Republicans purposefully diluted the voices of Wisconsin voters. Wisconsin needs to adopt nonpartisan legislative redistricting, so we can be sure that voters choose their elected officials, rather than elected officials choosing their voters.”

    What a joke for a writer. Everybody that has any clue about the truth knows that every time one side takes the majority one of the first things they do is gerrymander the districts to their advantage. Give me a break.
