DJOP invites you to an evening with David Daley, author of Rat F**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America’s Democracy. In Rat F**ked, a slang term for political sabotage first invoked in the 1920s, Daley documents the GOP’s insidious strategy to redraw the electoral map in the U.S. to guarantee their majority in the House through 2020. Daley will discuss what separates this gerrymandering effort from previous efforts, and the role that technology and the Citizens United decision played in this scheme. State Senator Daylin Leach will be our moderator. Leach is currently running in the Democratic primary to represent the 7th Congressional District, which experts describe as one of the most gerrymandered districts in the country.
Daley is a senior fellow of FairVote.org, and the digital media fellow for the Wilson School of Humanities and the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. He is a former editor-in-chief of Salon.com. The event will take place Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 6:00 – 8:00 PM, at the UFCW Local 1776 Union Hall, 3031 Walton Road in Plymouth Meeting. Ample free parking is available. Tickets are $40 each; food & beverages will be served. Visit secure.actblue.com/donate/daleyevent to register and pay online.
