MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following Thursday's revelation, following a federal court's ruling, of new details surrounding the crooked Republican redistricting scheme for Wisconsin.
"The Republican effort to create hidden networks to keep details of their crooked redistricting schemes from citizens shows how low Wisconsin has been dragged under Scott Walker's rule. A three-judge panel called the activities "shameful," and anyone with a sense of good government would agree. Any Republican who participated in these actions and abetted them must explain why they are above the rule of law. The unethical baton held up so well by Scott Jensen has been ably passed to Scott Walker and Scott Fitzgerald and Wisconsin is worse for it."
