Wisconsin Senator Scott Fiztgerald Lets The Cat Out of The Bag AGAIN!

First he screwed up by telling Fox News host Meghan Kelly the core reason the WI GOP is so hell bent on robbing families and eliminating Worker’s rights. Which then led to the super rush to quickly pass the bill in a way that didn’t require a quorum since the 14 Democratic senators were staying in Illinois to deny the very quorum they needed.

That bill however has now been blocked by a WI judge because the GOP violated Wisconsin’s open meetings law and will most likely end up in the state Supreme Court. On April 5th Wisconsin goes to the polls to elect a state Supreme Court Judge. It’s down to GOP backed David Prosser who is pledging to stand behind the GOP and JoAnne Kloppenburg who has pledge to stand with the law. In just this past week two of Prosser’s long time supporters and campaign operatives have pulled out oof his campaign to endorse Kloppenburg.

What did Fitzgerald slip up and admit to Meghan? That taking away collective bargaining rights and busting up unions is really about trying to defund President Obama’s campaign for re-election. You see these delusional self serving, lying, manipulative, affair having, non-living in their districts, girlfriend hiring GOP in Wisconsin really think they can destroy Obama by eliminating union-dues which many times are used to support political candidates.


FITZGERALD: Well if they flip the state senate, which is obviously their goal with eight recalls going on right now, they can take control of the labor unions.

    If we win this battle, and the money is not there under the auspices of the unions, certainly what you’re going to find is President Obama is going to have a much difficult, much more difficult time getting elected and winning the state of Wisconsin.

Tomorrow voters go to the polls. But, true to Fitzgerald form Scott just couldn’t keep his mouth shut. He assured everyone attending the same event he did yesterday knew that Prosser would take care of them. Kloppenburg will take care of following the law.

“If Prosser Wins all of Walker’s bills go into effect. If Kloppenburg wins everything will be blocked and we are dead.”

WI GOP Shows They Don’t Have The Maturity to Lead

As you might have heard the fight is still on against the disastrous budget bill in Wisconsin that includes destroying collective bargaining rights. The rights that Milwaukee’s many Polish immigrants fought for and some even died for so that worker’s could have a say in the workplace. That was the Bay View Massacre in 1896. Today those very workers are being mocked and so are their descendants and other Wisconsin citizens by Republican Governor Scott Walker and his dirty GOP co-horts.

When unable to get the necessary quorum to pass the bill they played ditry and removed fiscal items that required the quorum and then voted without delay to pass the ban on collective bargaining. However, they violated on camera no less, the 24 hour open meetings law in Wisconsin.

Then the bill went to court due to the violation of the 24 hour open meetings law and a judge (appointed by former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson) ruled they had indeed violated that law and thereby issued a restraining order against publication of the bill.

But this new WI GOP doesn’t believe laws apply to them or any actions they take. Since they could not force the Secretary of State to publish at law because he was following the judge’s order they forced another department to publish the law in spite of the judge’s ruling.

Back to court yesterday where again the Judge ruled on thie side of the people and the LAW.

“Now that I’ve made my earlier order as clear as it possibly can be, I must state that those who act in open and willful defiance of the court order place not only themselves at peril of sanctions, they also jeopardize the financial and the governmental stability of the state of Wisconsin,” Sumi said.

Her statement appeared to be a warning to state agencies, such as the state Department of Administration, that have begin implementing the union bill despite a temporary restraining order that Sumi issued on March 18 and the unsettled question about whether publication of the law by the Legislative Reference Bureau on Friday was enough to implement the law.

“Apparently that language was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was, ‘the further implementation of 2011 Wisconsin Act 10 is enjoined,’ ” Sumi said. “That’s what I now want to make crystal clear.”

State Department of Justice Executive Assistant Steven Means said afterward that state agencies like DOA are not parties to the lawsuit and are not subject to Sumi’s restraining order. But he stopped short of saying what advice DOJ will give DOA in light of the order.

After the latest ruling the GOP felt compelled to publicly apologize to the Judge in the case for ignoring her previous ruling:

The Republican Party of Dane County recognizes that Judge Sumi is a leftist living in Dane County. Her friends are leftists living in Dane County. Her son is a left wing activist in Dane County. She goes to cocktail parties held by leftists in Dane County. She shops at organic
gourmet food shops run by leftists living in Dane County. If she were to enforce the law of Wisconsin and do what was in the best interest of the people of Wisconsin, she’d be exiled from her lifestyle. She’d lose her friends!

The leadership of the Republican Party of Dane County have all made the choice to stand against the Dane County elite. We accept that Left feels righteous vandalizing our homes and keying our cars. It’s only fair. We disagree based upon logic and principle. That is intolerable! We prioritize the Constitution and the well being of the people of Wisconsin over f oie gras at cocktail parties. That’s the choice we made. We respect Judge Sumi’s decision to live her life with the rich diversity that liberals cherish.

This from the very people that raced to D.C. to be rewarded by the lobbyists for destroying bargaining rights in their state.

So you got that Wisconsin? If you defend the rights of workers, the middle class or the law you are an elitist lefist? If you take money from lobbyists, the Koch Brothers and corporations you’re all about upholding the constituion.

Update: Less than an hour ago Walker made it clear they will again ignore and violate the law:

Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch said he has a legal obligation to implement all laws that have been passed by the Legislature, signed by Gov. Scott Walker and “published into law.”

Huebsch added that the Department of Justice and his legal counsel agree that the measure has met those requirements “and is now effective law.”

“It is my duty to administer that law,” he said.

Huebsch’s comments raise questions about whether he or other state officials could be held in contempt of court after a hearing Tuesday, when Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi made it clear that any further implementation of the law is barred.
