Walker, "on principle[Sic]," likes unconstitutional gerrymandered maps

Wisconsin GOP Governor and principal beneficiary of obviously outrageously gerrymandered maps Scott Walker wants to fight with taxpayer dollars so as to keep the maps already intact though already declared unconstitutional by federal judges.

Fight "on principle," he says.

These are maps he signed. 

Wisconsin political language tip:

If you hear Walker say "on principle," he means 'in my partisan and personal self-interest.'

The principle? Getting paid and getting more power. There are no other principles with this guy.

If we were in Illinois, Walker would be all about independent redistrcting.

I always thought the rule of law trumped principal. Not in Wisconsin. Remember the Lake Beulea water pumping judge's ruling that said permits for underground pumping of ground water must consider the impacts on the surrounding areas. While Walker's AG took care of that. Walker doesn't believe in the rule of law or judges decisions if they go against his principals. Since he is a man of no principals anything that benefits him is what goes in Wisconsin!
