Wisconsin Gov. Walker weighs bills to weaken his Democratic successor

GOP Wisconsin State Legislature Passes Bill Limiting Incoming Democratic Governor's Powers. Here's What That Means

With a Democrat taking control of the attorney general's office, lawmakers also want to have authority to intervene in lawsuits. Republicans lost both seats in the November election.

"The Legislature makes the laws, the executive branch enforces the laws and the judicial branch interprets the laws", said Rep. Robert Wittenberg of Huntington Woods. "We're your supervisors. The Legislature is not the supervisor of the governor", said Lester Pines, a Madison attorney who frequently represents Democrats.

Sen. Steve Bieda, a Warren Democrat, said Republicans "refuse to accept the consequences of the election", criticizing what he said would be a "bogus" panel.

There, Republican politicians advanced legislation this week that would take over campaign finance oversight authority from the secretary of state.

Corrects that Walker has six days to act on the bills after they are delivered to him instead of 10 days.

Please also veto legislation that restricts early voting.

Among the bills that have advanced so far during the lame-duck session are ones which create a campaign finance commission, give the legislature the ability to intervene in lawsuits, and rollback a previously-approved increase in the minimum wage and paid-sick-leave mandate.

The GOP headed State Senate in MI, electing mainly along party lines passed the bill that clears the incoming secretary of state of the authority to superintend crusade funding matters and transfers it to contemporary bipartisan enterprise. Another avenue to protect those with pre-existing conditions is also in peril if Gov. Scott Walker signs the legislation. But the GOP in 2010 gerrymandered the state's legislative districts, so it now holds a 63-47 majority.

"If you look at this package of legislation, the Legislature is trying to say, 'You have to get our permission to do stuff".

Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, shown at a news conference this week in the state capitol, defended the Republican-led legislature's work to reduce executive powers before the new governor, a Democrat, is sworn in.

Republicans say setting the limit promotes fairness across the state while Democrats believe it will hamper early voting both in person and through the mail.

In the just-completed midterm election whose vote tally was delayed for a week after the election, were any Republican votes discovered after the election?

The Wisconsin Senate has narrowly rejected a bill that would have created a state guarantee that people with pre-existing conditions can have access to health insurance. "If you vote for this, shame on you, you will go down in history as a disgrace", Hintz said. "To you, this is all about politics".

The legislation passed Wednesday would shield the state jobs agency from his control and allow the board to choose its leader until September, likely at least delaying Evers' ability to maneuver on the Foxconn subsidy.

Republicans disputed criticism that the legislation would undermine the role of the attorney general. That would stop Evers and Democratic Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul from fulfilling promises to withdraw Wisconsin from a multistate lawsuit seeking repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Democrats were optimistic it would be rejected by the courts again.

The Legislature passed another measure to enact Medicaid work requirement rules that Walker recently won a federal waiver to establish.

With all of the idiotic scare talk about foreign enemies meddling in our elections, we're beginning to realize that our elections are not threatened by outside forces like the evil Russians or the inscrutable Chinese, but rather our elections are threatened by internal, domestic election officials of the Democrat persuasion.
