Good. Let's quite wasting all this time and money fighting this. Put this law into effect and move on. Time to grow up and get to work.

I thought that Judge Sumoi was going to demonstrate a modicum of jurisprucence and save the taxpayer's a pile of money. She should forward this matter to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where the matter is certain to be decided anyway. Of course, the taxpayer isn't represented in this display of judicial activism, are they?

I am not against the anti-union law...I am against how it was passed. The open meeting law requires 24 hours notice. The republicans only gave a 2 hour notice.

Instead of not implementing the law it should be implemented now. When the legislature session ends the republicans who arranged for the vote that violated the open meeting laws should be jailed until trail for breaking the open meeting law.

A message needs to be sent to ALL politicians Republicans, and Democrats that they are not above the law.

If it is true that you're against "how it was passed," what do you think about the Democrats who derelecterd their duties and fled to Illinois?

So you say. Let the court decide if any law was broken. If so punishment is expected to be a small fine as has been done in the past.

I personally didn't think that every discussion by any group of politicians during a legislative session was subject to the open meeting law?

Nope. It was the public unions who have been attacking the working class and taking their money that caused the problem.

FREEDOM

How to the Liberal-progressive-Socialists define freedom?

How do the Liberals define freedom for themselves but even more important is how do the Liberal define freedom for others.

Can freedom be found in Socialism, Communism or Fascism?(I guess it may determined by how you define freedom)

The people who confirmed that the votes were NOT fraudulent are themselves Democrat officials in Brookfield.

Apparently it was noticed that zero votes had been reported for Brookfield. I think that this is how it was discovered that these votes had not been reported to the AP.

Keep in mind, Nickolaus is not the custodian of those votes. The election supervisor in the city of Brookfield has them (they're apparently paper ballots). Nickolaus has no access to them. All she has access to is the report she received from the city of Brookfield. The election supervisor from Brookfield agrees with the explanation provided by Nickolaus, saying that the votes now being reported are exactly what she submitted on April 6, the night of the election, to Nickolaus, as well as to the local press, which reported the exact same figures in the local paper as those released yesterday. The Democrat member of the canvassing board also agrees that it was a mistake of Nickolaus completely omitting the city of Brookfield's vote count in her initial submission to the state.

What authority does AP have anyway?
