Will the people finally be put ahead of partisanship? The Wisconsin Supreme Court began hearing arguments this week challenging the constitutionality of our current legislative maps. Wisconsin has some of the most gerrymandered legislative districts in the nation, allowing the party in power to make it easier for their candidates to get elected. That is because Republicans who control the Legislature have used surgical precision to draw the maps and protect their partisan control. That is not right. Legislative boundaries should not favor either political party. They shouldn’t be drawn to keep a lawmaker, or a party, in power. By law, legislative boundaries are supposed to be contiguous and respect town boundaries as much as possible. Instead, under current maps, many voters are on an island, not connected to the Assembly district they are assigned to. It seems clear the current maps are unconstitutional. The question will be if the maps are declared illegal, who would be in charge of drawing the new maps? That may be the harder question to answer.
