Gerrymandering Gone Wild Series Part 2 – Suppressed By Design “Intentional Voter Suppression”
Gerrymandering is the drawing of electoral districts in order to support one political party over another. It’s a way for politicians to get more power and control, but it can also leave people without representation or fair voting rights. The Supreme Court ruled that gerrymandering was unconstitutional, but there are still loopholes where politicians can get away with it. This technique has been used to influence elections, and has been employed by both Democrats and Republicans but used more by Republicans in the past.
Join us as Beverly Taylor talks to David Daley, author of “RatF**ked” and “Unrigged” about how the Republican Party used a strategy called REDMAP. REDMAP stands for “REDistricting Majority Project” which is a program of the Republican State Leadership Committee dedicated to winning state legislative seats that have had a critical impact on congressional redistricting. It’s gerrymandering gone wild!!
This is The 411 Live. Real People. Real Talk.
