GOP lawyer warned legislators about redistricting plan

Attorney Jim Troupis argued in July 2011 for maps that took into account citizenship when calculating Latino voting strength on Milwaukee’s south side, but another attorney – Eric McLeod – rejected the idea and Republicans ultimately did not go along with it. Eight months later, the state lost a lawsuit on that very issue, resulting in a court-drawn map and nearly $200,000 in additional costs for taxpayers.
