Need To Know | Drawing the Lines: Parties Fight For Redistricting Power | PBS

Duration: 14:36
Program: Need to Know #126
Broadcast Date: Oct. 29, 2010

Need to Know investigates the old time techniques of gerrymandering Congressional districts, and finds modern and sophisticated methods now being employed to re-draw Congressional district lines. Following candidates in a local race in Ohio, and with interviews with Republican Ed Gillespie and Democrat Harold Ickes, we see how much outside money and attention is directed toward them.
