Every week I come across articles that I find interesting and that I think my readers here at Political⚡Charge might enjoy as well. Here are this week’s recommendations.
The Secret Files of the Master of Modern Republican Gerrymandering
The secrets of Thomas Hofeller might have stayed hidden forever when he passed away one year ago, but his estranged daughter stumbled onto his files as she was processing his estate and decided to share them publicly. This New Yorker article digs into what we’ve learned about how the Republicans locked in power for a decade.
An Op-Ed From the Future on Election Security
From Lawfare, this piece is written in the January AFTER the 2020 presidential election, recounting everything that went haywire or wrong leading up to and on Election Day. Some have echoes of 2016, others are news problems that are conceivable considering what we’ve learned in the last 2 1/2 years. This is truly the nightmare scenario. (Side note: Call your Members of Congress next week to demand that they push harder for election security!)
Once Nearly Gone, Atlantic Puffins Are Prospering and Pairing Up Nonstop
The balance out the first two articles, I thought a good news story was in order. The puffin story joins other uplifting stories that are part of Recharge, Mother Jones’ weekly newsletter full of positive stories. Quite welcome these days, if you ask me. Enjoy.
