And smoking gun e-mails will again bury the Republicans proving they calculated that their proposed maps would disenfranchise 10,000s of state residents.
As a bonus Republicans diluted the Latino vote in Milwaukee in senate district 3 by rearranging assembly borders causing "18 times as many voters as necessary in Latino areas" to be moved. (Marley, MJS) In the minds of the GOP, that's a good thing.
The e-mails show GOP staff and its tax-payer-funded law firms explicitly discussing the question of reducing "our number of disenfranchised voters on the recall elections[.]"

Wisconsin's only Latina legislator, JoCasta Zamarripa (8th Assembly District (Milwaukee)), is quietly letting the judicial process proceed without comment, but when the trial ends you can be sure that Rep. JoCasta (as she is known) will make the facts known about what is just another corrupt use of public office by Republicans for partisan purposes.
The Eighth Assembly district (JoCasta's) is Wisconsin's most densely populated, arguably its most diverse, and heavily democratic.
- More corruption from the Republican Party costing tax payers $Million-plus. Uppity Wisconsin

- "[D]ocuments forced out by the judges showed that former Republican Assembly Majority Leader Scott Jensen - - now a school choice advocate with a national conservative policy and funding organization (AFC) - - was contacted about the process." The Political Environment

Racism and disenfranchisement are that ole time religion for the GOP and they are desperate to not give it up.
