We are very pleased to announce that our lunch keynote speaker will be David Daley, author of the book Rat F**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy.

In his book, Daley chronicles the unprecedented effort by political operatives to hack American democracy through an audacious plan to flip state legislatures and redraw state and congressional legislative district lines in their party's favor. Mr. Daley is the former editor-in-chief of Salon and the Digital Media Fellow at the Wilson Center for Humanities and the Arts at the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia.

All attendees will have the option of requesting a meeting with their legislator through the LWVO office and can be teamed up for the meeting with a member of the Lobby Corps if desired.
