Maps Lead to More Debate

Maps Lead to More Debate

Wisconsin’s supreme court is staying out of the back-and-forth over election maps.

The court yesterday said the Wisconsin Elections Commission, not the Supreme Court, should decide which map should be used for any election before November. The liberal-majority court did say in a ruling last December that Wisconsin’s old political maps are unconstitutional, and cannot be used going forward. The question over maps comes as Wisconsin’s assembly speaker faces a second recall effort, and as Milwaukee is waiting on a special election to fill one of its empty State Senate seats.
