MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today released the following statement on today’s Wisconsin Supreme Court decision:

“Today’s decision is disappointing and, unfortunately, all too predictable. It is based on a desired political outcome, not the plain meaning and text of the constitution.

“The state constitution is clear. It limits when the legislature can meet to pass laws. Our framers knew that no good comes from lawmakers rushing laws through at the last minute without public scrutiny. The lame-duck session proves the framers were right. This was an attack on the will of the people, our democracy, and our system of government.

“The people of Wisconsin deserve better than this.”

  1. Thomas Martinsen says:

    Robin, Scott and your associates,

    Please show some class: stop efforts at rigging elections. Listen to the voters – all the voters. You would be more attractive to voters as lame ducks than as cons and sharks and bullies.
