A “partisan” pizzeria only delivers to households located in the neighborhoods of Gerrymandered
“Why is the district shaped like a corrupt politician who drew it?” Because they did – to exclude some voters and ensure they win the election! »Deplores the pizza chef Gerry in the promo above. “Mmm, you have to love the fresh taste of declining democracy! “
Gerry’s Partisan Pizza truck opened last weekend in Texas’ new 37th Congressional District, serving every household within those boundaries, and not one more. The menu features genuine selections such as Mandered Margherita, Choose Voters Cheese, and Politicians’ Pick Pepperoni. With every order, people receive information about partisan politics and corruption.
Gerrymandering involves “slicing” cards to create voting blocks – and the pizza is served in slices. RepresentUs thinks this simple login will help their post get rid of the clutter.
“We hope that through the prism of pizza delivery, more people will see how gerrymandering undermines our democratic process and diminishes voter power,” said editor Mackenzie Hart of Mischief @ No Fixed Address, who developed the campaign with Dini Von Mueffling Communications. .
Consumers can text “Pizza” to 505-405-9505 to order from Gerry or inquire about the issues. In the near future, the truck will visit Greensboro and Raleigh, NC; Annapolis, Maryland; Tallahassee and Orlando, Florida; Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Madison and Appleton, Wisconsin. Spots will be shown in these markets during Saturday Night Live.
“If you don’t like pizza restaurants that hand pick their customers, you’re going to hate it when you hear about politicians hand picking voters,” RepresentUs president Joshua Graham Lynn said. “By rigging the delivery area of Gerry’s Partisan Pizza, RepresentUs shows voters how politicians manipulate constituencies to rig elections – and gives voters a way to do something.”
In campaign materials, the organization claims the 37th US House District represents “an example of an extreme gerrymander who concentrates Democratic voters in an area to reduce their influence … in order to preserve the power of incumbents of the GOP “. RepresentUs also cites research showing that 90% of voters, Democrats and Republicans, oppose the practice of drastically redrawing the cards of Congress.
The group monitors gerrymandering by the two main parties. It won praise and caused some consternation in 2020 for an anti-corruption effort that focused on deepfake technology and world leaders Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin.
