Your description of just these three Ohio legislators is shocking. How can the people of Ohio that aren’t wacko undo this catastrophe? I live in WA where the situation is different so I can’t fathom what is happening in Ohio. What a terrible situation.

You neglected to mention how Andrew Brenner and Kris Jordan trade places between the state Senate and House to avoid term limits. As a lifelong Central Ohioan I never voted for either, but suffered under both.

Goodness, David, Ohio is a hot mess. But in reading Heather Cox Richardson’s book Democracy Awakening I learned more about gerrymandering which is pervasive everywhere. She describes “packing” or “cracking” which means drawing the lines to either contain similar voters or distribute them widely, with either tactic resulting in controlling voting blocs. You both are describing how politics works and it isn’t pretty. I’m ordering your book next. Thank you for all your efforts to pull back the curtain!
