“Brunell, a political science professor, has testified more than half a dozen times on behalf of Republican efforts to redraw congressional districts, and is the author of a 2008 book titled Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections Are Bad for America.” Meet Trump’s rumored pick to run the US Census Bureau.

Wells is currently facing criminal charges as part of Attorney General Bill Schuette’s probe into the Flint water crisis.” (I don’t know what will kill us first. The tainted water or the irony…)
