The 2020 Census brings new opportunities for Trump to abuse his power for the benefit of Republicans and to oppress minorities.
Walker blows the dog whistle by saying that rural voters should count more than urban voters do in elections
Gerrymandering is bad whether it's done by Republicans or by Democrats. In 5 months, Virginia voters will be deciding whether or not to turn their legislature over to the Democrats or not. That's right, this coming November, not in 2020. Blue America has a proposal:
A 5-4 decision that leaves gerrymandered districts in place.
It was 5-4 along partisan lines, of course. This means we take the fight to the state level.
Republicans cheat at elections but sometimes a change election can stop them. And SCOTUS sends a gay wedding cake case back to the lower court.
Republicans can't sue to protect their gerrymandered map, per SCOTUS.
It's upside-down land again over on Trump's favorite propaganda network.
And Possum Hollar, Texas, gets to redline Hispanic voters for another ten years. Flip that state house!
Before the end of June, the Supreme Court will decide whether to force Wisconsin to redistrict its legislature to eliminate extreme partisan gerrymandering favoring Republicans. The outcome is unpredictable but important to proponents of voters' rights.
