Many of former Gov. Walker’s legislative victories depended on gerrymandering, and Speaker Robin Vos would not be the speaker today without a wildly gerrymandered state. Say what one wants about those men, they’re staying true to their shared dance partner: Walker has joined a GOP group that favors gerrymandered redistricting, and Vos refuses to answer lawful a lawful subpoena about the very practice that has him taken him from backbencher to leadership of the Wisconsin Assembly.
Different men might have recoiled from a continuing defense of gerrymandering, but Walker and Vos have nowhere to turn save toward an even deeper commitment to that disreputable practice.
Far from remorse over it, they’ve both made clear they’ll defend it to the end.
