Ratf**ked : Why Your Vote Doesn't Count
by David Daley




Overview -
Lauded as a "compelling" (The New Yorker) and "eye-opening tour of a process that many Americans never see" (Washington Post), David Daley's Ratf**ked documents the effort of Republican legislators and political operatives to hack American democracy through an audacious redistricting plan called REDMAP. Since the revolutionary election of Barack Obama, a group of GOP strategists has devised a way to flood state races with a gold rush of dark money, made possible by Citizens United, in order to completely reshape Congress--and our democracy itself. "Sobering and convincing" (New York Review of Books), Ratf**ked shows how this program has radically altered America's electoral map and created a firewall in the House, insulating the Republican party and its wealthy donors from popular democracy. While exhausted voters recover from a grueling presidential election, a new Afterword from the author explores the latest intense efforts by both parties, who are already preparing for the next redistricting cycle in 2020.
