Last Week's Trivia Winner:
What political term was coined as a result of the publicity surrounding the cartoon map? In 1812, the then-Governor of Massachusetts, Elbridge Gerry, signed a bill that re-districted Massachusetts to benefit his Democratic-Republican Party. When mapped, one of the contorted districts in the north-shore area was said to resemble the shape of a salamander. Subsequently the portmanteau Gerry-mander appeared with the political cartoon of a map that would help to catapult the word into the vernacular as the go-to term to describe district-shape manipulation for partisan gain.
Congratulations to Beth Mettling of Newburyport, our winner last week. Thanks to all for playing and good luck this week!
