Irony Alert… 2 Fleebaggers Wrote Law That WI GOP Will Use to Defeat Activist Judge’s Ruling
It figures. Two Wisconsin fleebaggers wrote the law Republicans will use to defeat the political ruling yesterday by activist Judge Maryann Sumi that blocked the publication of a controversial new union law.
Activist judge Maryann Sumi issued a temporary restraining order on the Wisconsin Republican union bill on Friday.
Wisconsin Republicans will use a law written by two fleebaggers to defeat the ruling on Monday.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported:
Senate Rule 93 says that when the Legislature is in special session, “A notice of a committee meeting is not required other than posting on the legislative bulletin board.”
That’s the rule Republican leaders are citing in their contention that one of the votes leading up to passage of Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial anti-union bill was legal.
One ironic footnote: The rule was written in 1983 by two of the Democratic senators who left Wisconsin last month to avoid voting on the bill, Sen. Tim Cullen, D-Janesville, and Sen. Fred Risser, D-Madison.
The two were among 14 senators who fled to Illinois to slow down the bill, which Walker and Republican leaders were fast-tracking through the Legislature.
