Gerrymandering — This should be an illegal practice of reconfiguring precinct boundaries for the benefit of one party over the other.
The purpose is to disenfranchise voters unlucky enough to reside in the affected district. It is a cowardly move to force a political outcome by those not skilled, honest or proficient enough to win elections fairly.
I think the Supreme Court should receive an amicus brief on behalf of all the Wisconsin residents who have been robbed of their right to vote for any candidate of their choice by this practice.
Taking it to the Supreme Court has been done several times before, but in the present political climate it needs to be demanded and outlawed in every state and county of the U.S. as soon as possible. I wish it could have been done before the 2020 election.
When people come to visit from out of town, I point to the splat of the Pleasant Prairie boundaries as an example of the result. Too bad a lot of nice people get branded with that brush.
Makes you wonder just what the Supreme Court is for, and Congress — for the number of things it hasn’t done — should be backing up to get big paychecks and lifetime benefits.
