Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Now that both the U.S. intelligence community and Democrats -- and even a few Republicans -- have finally begun to figure out that safeguarding U.S. election integrity requires, at a bare minimum, a paper ballot for every vote cast, how long will it take them to figure out that those ballots need to be hand-marked (not computer-marked) and hand-counted, so that the American public can truly begin to have some confidence that election results are accurate and that their votes actually matter? Some encouraging news out of Pennsylvania and from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee on that front. But even if we have a hand-marked paper ballot for every vote cast and counted them all by hand publicly, Democrats would still have to overcome the GOPs systemic partisan gerrymandering of state legislative districts and U.S. House seats, which has unconstitutionally given them a steep advantage on district maps, despite being consistently out-voted by Democrats. We're joined by FairVote gerrymandering expert DAVID DALEY, former Editor-in-Chief at Salon and author of 'Ratf**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy', detailing how the Republicans so-called REDMAP scheme took over state legislatures and redistricted the nation with a wildly partisan advantage. Is it even possible for Democrats to overcome that structural disadvantage in the 2018 mid-terms? And can fair maps be restored in time for the 2020 elections, after which district maps will be redrawn once again by partisan majorities in state houses for another 10 years?  Brad Friedman, David Daley, Desi Doyen
