Federal court says Wisconsin redistricting case can proceed (The Hill).

"A federal court panel on Thursday denied a request from Wisconsin Republicans to dismiss a lawsuit over the state's voting maps, keeping alive a legal challenge brought by Democratic allies and voting rights advocates.

In its ruling, the three-judge panel also granted a request from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) and the state's five GOP U.S. congressmen to intervene in the partisan court clash over the once-per-decade redistricting process, which involves drawing new legislative and congressional districts.
....
Wisconsin's political maps are among the most gerrymandered in the country, according to experts. Republicans in recent years have won just around half the vote for legislative seats statewide but nearly two-thirds of the districts themselves; they hold 61 of 99 seats in the state Assembly after winning 54 percent of the popular vote."


A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich
