John Nichols: Gerrymandering empowers obstructionists like Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald | John Nichols 

Gerrymandering is a vile scourge on democracy all over the country. But one could argue it’s at its worse right here in Wisconsin. We had the perfect putrid petre dish for it with the Three HorsesAsses of the Apocolypse — Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and Scott Walker. We got rid of one.

Vos won’t release $850,000 contract with law firm in redistricting case

Speaker Robin Vos won’t make public a legal contract that could cost taxpayers as much as $850,000 despite a law ensuring records are widely available.
