    Wisconsin GOP senators violated open meetings law, Dane County DA alleges

    Madison — Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne filed a civil complaint Wednesday alleging legislative leaders violated the state's open meetings law last week when a special committee adopted a bill curbing collective bargaining for most public workers.
    You couldn't help but see this one coming. LOL. Should this lawsuit prevail in the courts, then Walker is back to square one on his bill to gut the teacher's unions in Wisconsin. Meanwhile, the recalls continue unabated.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Of course the People have this right and we'll see what the courts say. But I do have a question about all this. My understanding was that the unions did agree to the cut in pay so long as they had the ability later on when things recover to renegotiate their terms and get back what they had given up. Is this a correct summary? If so, I don't even see the point in gutting the union in the first place.

    Was the open meetings law violated, or wasn't it? It's a very simple question.

    If they do go back to square one then they just bring the original bill to the Senate floor and vote while the Democrats are there, and in doing so beat them with their mistake in doing this.

    It looks like the die hard unions nuts and crybabies are desperately trying any sniveling tactic to over turn Wisconsin's anti-union laws.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Do you think that the people should not have the ability to redress the government?

    I believe they the people do. However this is just pettiness on the part of the DA and other sore losers just like the recall petitions and unions trying to intimidate businesses into not supporting the governor . This is basically the same crap the republicans did with trying to disable the democrat's direct pay deposit so that they have to come back to collect their checks, file warrants, threaten to fire every teacher or file charges on the democrats on who fled the state, make false accusations that the democrats were not doing their job and all sorts of other **** to force the democrats to come back to the state to hold a quorum.

    This is exactly what happened. The unions agreed to all of the financial demands. This was about the budget after all, right?

    Turned down. It was never about the budget, it was about destroying unions and the support those unions give to Democrats. That these idiots have managed to demonize teachers in the process is just sickening.
