Fred Clark gets redrawn out of his district? Just a coincidence, of course.
Clark a rep without a district. (Baraboo News-Republic, 7/20/2011)
Excerpt: The state Senate passed Republican-drawn maps that create new political boundary lines for all 132 members of the Legislature and eight congressional districts, despite pleas from Democrats that the maps are illegal and being pushed through in advance of upcoming recall elections.
The move means that if Clark were to defeat Olsen in the Aug. 9 recall election, he would only be eligible to serve through 2012. After that, he would no longer live in the district and would have to move in order to run again for that seat.
After the current term, Clark’s home will lie inside the 27th Senate District, where Democrat Jon Erpenbach has served since 1999. [Emphasis added.]
