Statement on Republican Gerrymandering

MADISON, WI – After a Federal Appeals Court slammed Republican redistricting efforts as an "unconstitutional gerrymander," Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

"We've known for years that Republican politicians have abused their power to rig Wisconsin elections in their favor. From disenfranchising voters, limiting polling places, restricting voting hours and drawing unconstitutional legislative districts, Republican politicians have waged an unprecedented attack on our democratic values. Every voter deserves to have their voice heard and I am relieved that our judicial system is helping to hold Republicans accountable for their unconstitutional partisan power grabs."
