This is another example of the TEAPublican's utter lack of ability to be in charge of anything. Having a single county represented in the Legislature by eight (8) individuals shows a lack of competence in the re-districting process. Of course it was likely done with the purpose of setting up a system with no accountabiity so the Walker Regime can continue to pass ALEC developed "laws" about such non-issues as "voter fraud". Disgusting, to say the least.
