Redistricting

Music Video on Redistricting Skewers Corporations, Special Interests -- VIDEO

ProPublica on Wednesday released an animated music video to illustrate the findings from their investigative report into corporations and special interests influencing the redistricting process. ProPublica reports:

Their names suggest selfless dedication to democracy. Fair Districts Mass. Protect Your Vote. The Center for a Better New Jersey. And their stated goals are unarguable: In the partisan fight to redraw congressional districts, states should stick to the principle of one person, one vote.

But a ProPublica investigation has found that these groups and others are being quietly bankrolled by corporations, unions, and other special interests. Their main interest in the once-a-decade political fight over redistricting is not to help voters in the communities they claim to represent but mainly to improve the prospects of their political allies or to harm their enemies.
