In his testimony, [an aide to Assembly Speaker Fitzgerald, Adam] Foltz disclosed that he provided copies of the legislative and congressional maps to Mark Jefferson and Mike Wild at the RNC before they were passed. Wild is on the RNC’s redistricting committee. Jefferson is the Midwest regional director for the RNC, a position he took this summer after serving more than four years as the executive director of the Wisconsin Republican Party.
Foltz said he provided the maps to the RNC at the direction of legal counsel before they were passed. Lawmakers have retained the firms Michael Best & Friedrich and the Troupis Law Office for work on the maps, and they have committed $400,000 in taxpayer money to cover those expenses.
