Wisconsin State Journal Slams Fitzgerald Brothers

April 1, 2011

I have talked/blogged/and argued for weeks about the process of how a bill becomes a law, and the need to follow it.  I have also ripped into the fact Governor Walker and Company have not followed the process, and that is why I believe the collective bargaining ‘law’ is not valid.

Today the conservative editorial board of the Wisconsin State Journal sang my song.  I think all should read this.

Instead, because the Fitzgeralds got cute with Wisconsin’s open meetings law, the bill is stuck in an exhausting and complex legal battle that could drag on for weeks if not months.

We sure hope the Fitzgeralds have learned their lesson: Flouting even the spirit of Wisconsin’s open government laws is a big mistake. It ruins public trust and exposes government actions to thorny legal challenges.
