    Judge Restores Wisconsin Governor's Powers, Strikes Down GOP Laws

    I am surprised this was not mentioned earlier. A judge has tossed out a set of laws passed during the lame duck session in Wisconson that strongly reduced the power of the Governor after Scott Walker lost to a democrat.

    Yeah, that was a pretty scummy move on their way out by the Wisconsin GOP. Other states tried it too. Haven't seen how those have worked out.

    Republicans are just awful people.
