(MADISON) – Today, Senator Lena C. Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement after a Federal Appeals Court shot down Republican redistricting as an “unconstitutional gerrymander:”

“Republicans got away with rigging three elections under illegal redistricting. Nearly every election law change Republicans enacted was geared towards keeping their party in power, including redistricting. I am grateful today for the court doing its duty to check and balance our other two branches of government after their extremist unconstitutional and irresponsible gerrymander. Every voter deserves to have their voice heard.”
