Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after the Ohio Supreme Court rejected a GOP-gerrymandered state legislative map for the fourth time. Despite a fair map presented by independent mapmakers, Republicans on the redistricting commission chose to ram through a similar version of an earlier map that was already rejected because of Republican attempts to gerrymander.
“As Ohio Democrats tour the state to talk about the cost of GOP corruption, there’s no clearer example than Republican gerrymandering that is already costing Ohio millions. Working families have paid too high a price already, it’s time for Republicans to stop squeezing the wallets of Ohioans, do their damn jobs and pass fair maps,” said Chair Walters.
