Statements about Redistricting

Says the NAACP's Ohio chapter has endorsed Issue 2.

A member of the redistricting commission proposed in Issue 2 "could accept a bribe from somebody" and "couldn’t be removed from this commission."

Says Ohio's Issue 2 will create a redistricting commission that will "have a blank check to spend our money."

"Thousands of politicians from across Ohio – along with their relatives, employees and friends – are still eligible to serve" on the proposed redistricting commission.

Says that after she declared her candidacy for Congress, "the redistricting process was manipulated to allow incumbent politicians to guarantee their re-election."

Dem-controlled Ohio House voted "to change the process, to create objective criteria, to modify the Constitution" ... to "take politics out of the efforts to draw legislative boundaries."

"The governor won this state with 49 percent. We had some of the closest races in the House in history. So you’re not dealing with this 70-30, like they want to make it."

"About 57 percent of registered Democrats in the new (9th Congressional) district come from my old district."

Says that to drive the length of the newly drawn 15th District "you’d find yourself on the road as long as it would take to drive from Columbus to Niagara Falls."
