MILWAUKEE— Sachin Chheda, director at the Fair Elections Project, issued the following statement in response to the State Supreme Court decision released Tuesday:

“The majority of the State Supreme Court has once again demonstrated its loyalty is to the Republican Party, not the laws of Wisconsin. There is no basis in the constitution or the law to utilize a “least changes” framework, and not only do the justices in the majority know that, they completely misstate federal precedent in this area of the law by dishonestly misrepresenting the findings in Rucho.”

“Whatever comes from this corrupt nonsense, if it’s not fair to our state, it shouldn’t be accepted by federal courts, and most importantly, it won’t be accepted by the people of Wisconsin.”
