The naked power grab by Governor Scott Walker over collective bargaining met a Federal Court, and was sent into reverse today. Two portions of ACT 10 were viewed by the court as violating the First Amendment rights of public workers.
“Wisconsin citizens have long known Gov. Walker’s attack on workers was not honest and today’s court ruling shows his attack was not legal,” said a statement from former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, a Democrat running against Walker.
“Gov. Walker tore Wisconsin apart and his way has failed us. As governor, I will restore transparency, accountability and honesty to the governor’s office and bring Wisconsin together.”
