Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party (ODP) Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement as Republicans yet again broke the law in producing and approving GOP-gerrymandered maps.
“Once again, Republicans have failed to understand the assignment. Every time they pass another gerrymandered map, Ohioans pay a steeper cost for the political games Republican politicians are playing with our elections. And it will be a high cost to pay. Ohio Democrats have done their job and produced fair maps. The failure of this commission falls squarely on the shoulders of Republicans.
“GOP politicians on this committee have proven time and time again that they’re more interested in placating special interest donors and extremists in the legislature than operating within the law. Any statements from them saying otherwise is strictly performative and should be treated as such.”
