Los Angeles, CA 90089-0185

Join Common Cause, the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, and the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles for a discussion with David Daley, author of “Ratf**ked: The True Story Behind the Plan to Steal America’s Democracy.”Rat-efd

Daley will discuss how partisan political operatives perpetrated “one of the greatest heists in American political history” in the 2010 election by flooding state races with dark money made possible by Citizens United and reshaping state legislatures through gerrymandering. Operation REDMAP resulted in a takeover of legislatures that allowed politicians to use the redistricting process to manipulate their own districts and congressional maps and to entrench their power by shielding elected officials from popular democracy.

Common Cause’s National Redistricting Director Kathay Feng and League of Women Voters National President Chris Carson will also discuss reform efforts happening around the country.
