MADISON, Wis. — Today, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court handed down their decision regarding Wisconsin’s 2022 redistricting process. Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement in response:
“As I’ve said time and time again, the people should pick their representatives, not the other way around. Without a fair and impartial process for drawing our legislative maps, out of the hands of politicians, we will continue to see the will of the people distorted in the Wisconsin State Legislature.
“I am deeply disappointed that after an unprecedented action by the U.S. Supreme Court, the conservative majority of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court imposed an even more unrepresentative, gerrymandered map. This decision was nakedly political and undemocratic. These maps dilute the power of Black communities in Wisconsin, which experts believe violates the Voting Rights Act. These maps are not representative of Wisconsin — they are a power grab. Today, justice has been denied.”
