VIROQUA - The Vernon County Democratic Party will host a ‘Tacos and Gerrymandering’ event on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Tap House 138 at the American Legion, 120 N. Rusk, Viroqua.
Two people close to Wisconsin’s gerrymandering lawsuit will give an update on the latest events in the state’s gerrymandering lawsuit.
Participants will be able to hear first-hand from Emily Bunting of Viola, one of the plaintiffs in the Wisconsin case heard before the U.S. Supreme Court in October, and Stephen Schulhofer, professor at New York University School of Law, who wrote one of the briefs.
Bunting will speak on her impressions from attending the hearing. “We felt our arguments were strong,” she said. Schulhofer will discuss the legal standard, prospects for success, and the path ahead whether the plaintiffs are successful or not.
The event is free and open to the public. At 5:30 p.m., people attending can purchase tacos for $1.50 at the Tap House 138 bar. The program will begin at approximately 6:15 p.m.
