I concur with Tim.  Marking the original bug as "won't fix" for the reasons that he listed.

In a separate PR, I'll modify the last line random.choices() to be "return [population[bisect(cum_weights, random() * total, 0, hi)] for i in range(k)]".  That will make the function more robust (handling the exotic case with subnormal weights).
