Gerrymandering Gone Wild Podcast 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 loop holes were politicians can get away with it. This technique has been used to influence elections, and has been employed by both Democrats and Republicans.
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 to suppress votes. REDMAP stands for “REDistricting Majority Project” which is a program of the Republican State Leadership Committee dedicated to winning state legislative seats that has had a critical impact on congressional redistricting. It’s gerrymandering gone wild!!
