Matt Rothschild, Dr. K. Zagorski on Fair Maps

Thursday night Matt Rothschild of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign and Dr. K. Zagorski spoke in a forum on fair maps and gerrymandering in Menomonie. The discussion, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Greater Chippewa Valley clarified the history and current status of gerrymandering in Wisconsin, and what can be done to move forward. Wisconsin currently has one of the most gerrymandered voting maps in the country. Litigation over the state maps worked its way up to the US Supreme Court recently, but was rejected and returned to the lower courts for further work, and will be re-heard in the future.

Several plaintiffs in the current Gill V. Whitford case were in attendance at the forum. The discussion was followed by an extensive question and answer session. This video reflects the entire session and the Q&A period.
