   schema:description "After Obama's historic election in 2008, a small cadre of Republican operatives began plotting the party's comeback with a simple yet ingenious plan. These men had devised a way to take a tradition of dirty tricks-- known to political insiders as "ratf**king"-- to a whole new, unprecedented level. Flooding state races with a gold rush of dark money made possible by Citizens United, the Republicans reshaped state legislatures, where the power to redistrict is held. Daley examines the far-reaching effects of this so-called REDMAP program, which has radically altered America's electoral map and created a firewall in the House, insulating the party and its wealthy donors from popular democracy."@en ;
