LWV-South Hampton Roads: Gerrymandering Book Discussion. David Daley's book, "Ratf**cked," will be discussed. Julian E. Zelizer of the Washington Post states, "Daley's book provides a blow-by-blow account of how redistricting happened. He draws on investigative reports, interviews and court documents to give readers an eye-opening tour of a process that many Americans never see....What Daley makes clear is that ruthless partisan gerrymandering is not good for democracy.
