ProsserNow that a pair of cases concerning the Republican Party's secret, private reapportionment of Wisconsin legislative districts are nearing action, what happens if Republicans succeed in gaming the system by getting the nominally conservative majority on the state Supreme Court to effectively affirm the GOP's intentions?
Well, not to worry, at least if you take conservatives at their word. I know, that's a stretch, but let's consider the possibiilty anyway.
The court is deciding whether to consider a GOP group's argument that any recall elections of state lawmakers should be conducted using the new maps that Republicans drew up to favor Republicans. These are the maps that, as it turns out, have placed some Wisconsin voters in Africa. [Another case filed by Democrats in federal court seeks to undo the GOP reapportionment altogether.]
