Deceased G.O.P. Strategist's Hard Drives Reveal New Details on the Census Citizenship Question

Excerpt: Files on those drives showed that he wrote a study in 2015 concluding that adding a citizenship question to the census would allow Republicans to draft even more extreme gerrymandered maps to stymie Democrats. And months after urging President Trumpís transition team to tack the question onto the census, he wrote the key portion of a draft Justice Department letter claiming the question was needed to enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act ó the rationale the administration later used to justify its decision.

GOP will stop at nothing to subvert the popular will at the polls.
