Your Call: How redrawing America’s political map locked in GOP dominance

ratf-ed.png

On the June 22nd edition of Your Call, Salon’s Editor in Chief David Daley discusses his new book, Rat F**ked, The True Story Behind The Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy.
Daley examines how Republicans are rigging democracy through redistricting. In 2010, Karl Rove wrote: When you draw the lines, you make the rules. It worked. Republicans gained nearly 700 new seats and set the stage for unprecedented gerrymandering. Their so-called REDMAP program has radically altered the country’s electoral map. What are the implications for decades to come? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

David Daley, author of Rat F**ked, The True Story Behind The Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy
