Lone Wisconsin Republican Who Opposed Stealing Democrats’ Power Explains Why

Wisconsin Republicans are working through the night to bring together enough votes to pass a sweeping package of lame-duck proposals created to empower the GOP-controlled Legislature and weaken the incoming Democrat replacing Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

After working into the early morning hours to ensure that the bills considered in the extraordinary session struck proper balance between the incoming Governor and the Legislative branch, I was unable to support a third proposal, SB 884.

Michigan Democrats in January will jointly hold the governor, attorney general and secretary offices for the first time in 28 years, but the Legislature will continue to be controlled by Republicans.

Evenson didn't give a time frame for when Walker would act. Walker has 10 days from when the bills arrived on his desk to make a decision on what to do with them. Those lawmakers also approved more than 80 last-minute appointments made by outgoing Republican Governor Walker, so last-minute that many of them never even received a hearing.

The move comes almost a month after Gov. -elect Tony Evers, a Democrat, narrowly beat Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Democratic Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel is thought to be the aim of an additional bill which provides the legislature with the right to wade into legal battles involving the state.

On the heels of significant Democratic midterm victories in MI and Wisconsin, the Republican-controlled legislatures in both states have advanced plans to limit the authority of the states' newly elected governors.

The 23-year-old Detroit forward chose to take the opportunity to shed a glove and deliver a bare-knuckle cheap shot. It's regarded as one of the ugliest incidents in league history and Moore never played a game in the NHL again.

On Wednesday, Evers said he was planning on making a personal appeal to Walker to veto the bill.

It's a move similar to that carried out by Republicans in North Carolina two years ago - and Republicans in MI are talking of similar action this week.

Republicans maintained legislative majorities in the midterms, winning 11 state Senate seats to Democrats' six and 63 state Assembly seats to Democrats' 36. So the Republicans there are scrambling to limit their power as well.

Democrats countered that the legislation is an unconstitutional overreach. They've also voted for legislation that would undermine the new attorney general, allowing Legislature, House or Senate "to intervene in any suit at any stage". That measure is awaiting a final legislative vote in the state Assembly.

Walker has signaled his support for the bills; on Thursday, a spokesman said Walker was still reviewing the legislation and gave no timetable for action.

In Michigan, the Republican-led legislature on Wednesday hollowed out minimum wage and sick leave laws, three months after it passed those statutes as part of a political strategy to keep them from appearing on the ballot as a voter referendum.

Among the changes the legislation will enact is requiring the governor to get permission from the legislature before asking for changes in programs that are run jointly by the state and federal governments. Multiple people have come forward to say they were hired to go to people's homes and collect ballots (which is illegal), all of whom were hired by a campaign operative with a known history of criminal behavior. Democrats would likely need a permanent injunction to stop the changes for good, but Republicans would nearly certainly pursue appeals all the way to the state Supreme Court, which is controlled by conservative justices.
