Voter ID passed by Wisconsin Senate, sends bill to Gov. Scott Walker | Sheboygan Press | sheboyganpress.com

many Dems will not be able to vote

these bills are passing and being signed by the GOP Govs that took over state houses in the 2010 GOP blow out elections. The Dems are in sad shape for 2012.

These debates are overblown.

And the areas that are passing these are just going to have to prove that anyone can get a free photo ID otherwise these laws are unconstitutional.

Minnesota's legislature has passed a similar bullshit bill. Thankfully, Gov. Mark Dayton (D) has said he will veto it. We have almost zero voter fraud in MN. Many investigations and the high-profile recounts have proven that.

Why don't Republicans want people to be able to easily vote?
(^Rhetorical. I know why.)

Not just middle America but Canada as well.

U2 accused of union busting in Winnipeg

In a statement, IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb said, "This is nothing short of union busting. The members of Local 63 have been working in legitimate theatre and at every major concert event in Winnipeg for over 100 years. They had agreed to match the costs of any non-union labour provider working on the U2 concert. The International will continue to support the efforts of the members of Local 63 to ensure that labour standards are maintained."
Now, if any students want to "rise up" and give away their tickets to future shows as a show of solidarity against "union busters."

I'll take 'em.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Upholds Antiunion Law - Law Blog - WSJ

Quote:
Wisconsin Supreme Court Upholds Antiunion Law

The Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld the law in a 4-3 ruling, with the court’s conservative justices in the majority. The narrow ruling was not surprising out of a court that long has been beset by a sharp divide between its conservative and liberal blocs.

Tuesday’s opinion said Wisconsin circuit-court judge Maryann Sumi exceeded her authority when she issued a permanent injunction in May barring the law from taking effect. The justices wrote, “One of the courts that we are charged with supervising has usurped the legislative power which the Wisconsin Constitution grants exclusively to the legislature.”
Here is judicial activism defined:

"exceeded her (judge's) authority," "usurped the legislative power which the Wisconsin Constitution grants exclusively to the legislature.”

Things might get interesting in Wis.

TPM Election Scoreboard | TPM News Pages

Dems have picked up one Senate seat

and most likely Senate seat 18, too.

Senate seat 8 is leaning Dem with 67% of votes in, that makes 3 !

that would put the Dems in control of Wisconsin Senate.


Of course 2 Dems are up for recall next week? They both would need to win.

We do have a few ifs, here.

11:36 P.M.: Democrats have won a second state senate district — Oshkosh Deputy Mayor Jessica King (D) has beaten state Sen. Randy Hopper (R). King lost narrowly to Hopper in a 2008 race that went to a recount; this time around Hopper took hits not just for his voting record but for his messy divorce and relationship with a staffer.

According to local reports, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus will not report for over an hour — just like in the state Supreme Court race earlier this year, it all comes down to this county in the fight between Darling and state Rep. Sandy Pasch (D).
Ok, they got two seats.

But, the 3rd seat that the Dems have had a lead all night might not finish that way.

Quote:
WI STATE SENATE -- 08 Votes
Darling (R) 49% 22,693
Pasch (D) 51% 23,804
68% reporting
I have been checking this all night. It has been coming in at 3-4 percent increments all night.

Now they say this GOP County official will hold further updates? ( until she gets the right result ? )

Wisconsin had a bizarre Supreme Court election finish in this same part of the state.

Waukesha again in the cross-hairs

A large chunck of votes just came in for Darling in Waukesha County, putting her in the lead 52-48 with nearly 80% counted. As Election Law Blogger Rick Hasen notes, Waukesha is the same county that screwed up in the Supreme Court race. If Darling pulls this out, we may be hearing about this one tomorrow
GOP will not lose the 3rd seat. Through 68% of the votes counted, the Dem had the lead.

Waukesha County seems to wait until they can decide elections.

Epic fail on the part of progressives, union bosses, Ed Schultz and other defenders of the unsustainable status quo. They hoped to stop gov Walker in his tracks and send a loud message to other states attempting common sense reform and fiscal restraint.

Instead, they got 47% of the vote and won 2 seats they were gonna win next fall anyway.

I thought you were a defender of status quo?

Oh, is it only when it suits you?

I see now...
