Chicago-style gerrymandering

Chicago-style pizza can be delicious, but Chicago-style politics – completely the product of the Democratic Party -- are unappetizing. Now that our government is led by an alumnus of the Chicago political machine, it is worth paying attention to how things are done in the Windy City. And downright amusing (as long as you don’t live there).  TimeOut Chicago has selected the most gerrymandered wards in Chicago, and they are quite a feat in hand-picking the voting groups necessary to keep Alderman so-and-so in office forever. Behold:

The First Ward

The 15th Ward

The 35th Ward

The 36th Ward

And my favorite:

The Second Ward
