With last night's victory for the people of Wisconsin under way, GOP Legislators are getting nervous. They are so scared, that they are proposing changes to legislative maps which heavily favor Republicans over the people of Wisconsin.
Working families’ voices will be silenced under the proposed maps. They are rigged so that when the people of Wisconsin reclaim their democracy in the August recall elections– Republicans will be able to sneak back into office in 2012 via GOP favored districts.
Just take a look. These maps are so ludicrous that Nancy Nusbaum (D) and Fred Clark (D) won’t even be in their districts anymore if the changes go through. They cut off Nancy’s house from her district by half a block!
They are so scared of Sandy Pasch (D) that they went out of their way to add more Republican voters to her seat. They know they can't beat Bob Wirch (D) so they removed him entirely from his district.
Stop the power grab. Raise your voice. Sign the petition for fair and balanced redistricting map that gives a voice to all Wisconsinites. Tell Legislators they need to get back to the real issues – creating good jobs and a fair economy for Wisconsin.
Union-busting Legislators are proving they will stop at nothing to consolidate their power and silence the voice of the taxpaying middle class. Instead of doing their job and listening to their constituents, Scott Walker’s GOP lemmings are changing the game and rigging the rules so they can’t be held accountable for their own actions.
Despicably, this major policy change is being rushed through in an extraordinary session before recalls can take place. Extraordinary sessions are rarely used, until now. The rules are different. Debate is limited and democracy is circumvented.
This is an unprecedented power grab and the time to speak out is now. Redistricting happens once every ten years. The next time the lines are redrawn will be after the 2020 Census. This issue is the heart of who represents you in Madison and in Washington for a decade to come.
Stand up and be heard. Sign the petition for a non-partisan district map. Wisconsin needs to focus on good jobs and a better economy,not partisan redistricting.
