Boom! Wisconsin GOP’s Lame-Duck Power Grab Ruled Unconstitutional

Mary Bottari, Scott Zimmerman

A Wisconsin judge ruled on Thursday that laws passed by the Republican-controlled legislature in December to limit the powers of newly elected Democratic Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul were unconstitutional.

It’s just these kind of small elections that progressives need to be activated on. They are meaningful, particularly when they are over Supreme Court seats.

Historians will have plenty of ammunition against the apparatchiks of the Koch empire. Walker will surely garner a chapter all to his loathsome self. His coconspirators in the legislature will be included in the tome. Kochism is a fungus that has pervaded our politics. Sometimes it is out in the open and sometimes it lingers in the recesses. Constant vigilance is needed to disinfect our politics. The best disinfectant, as the aphorism goes, is sunlight. Let there be light!

I agree with characterization as “cancer”, but fungus - I could only wish that the mycelial dynamics could set to feed off this cancer and thoroughly render it - like a biological flame.

This is much better than yesterday’s CD article. This one explains the actual legal basis in the WI constituion for disallowing the “extraordinary session” of the WI legislature.

The shameless posturing of lies and bullying, still astonishes. Walker, up on stage, pretending his cartoonish diagram can turn his Koch-backed anti-democratic power-grab into the epitome of ethics and decency. Craven bought-and-paid-for ego, playing dress-up and parading as legitimacy and democracy.

How have human consciousness and public awareness gotten so degraded, that such blatant turds are not laughed off the stage by every witness? How are there humans who think they believe and support such utter degradation?

Good news for Wisconsin, America and Democracy.

You would think these snake oil salesmen would be laughed off the stage, but the dumbing-down of the right-wing just has them charging back instead of using theirs brains, what little there is of them.
Wi. will return to blue next election, mainly because the influence of Walker will be gone.

Also, props to the WI constitution and the people who wrote it, for seeking to block precisely such legislative shenanigans!

HI theoldgoat! Wow! FUNGUS-----can take care of hydrocarbons and change ugly death to LIFE. This is amazing. Thank you! : )

Oh and the weird Scott Walker doesn’t know how a Venn diagram works. Two circles overlap, and they come together in the center. The center shows what the 2 groups have in common—the outter circles show what things differ…all 3 circles were the same Scott Walker—so you don’t have a Venn Diagram— you just have crap. : )
