Here we go again. Liberals sue. Dane County judge rules in their favor. Appeals Court or Supreme Court overrules. Repeat. This is all about generating negative headlines about Walker before the election.
A Dane County judge on Thursday ordered Gov. Scott Walker to promptly call special elections in two state legislative districts that have had vacancies since December, saying the governor misinterpreted a state law in choosing not to fill the seats until the November general election.
Circuit Judge Josann Reynolds gave Walker one week to order special elections for the two open seats, Senate District 1 and Assembly District 42. Reynolds’ order states that the elections must take place on a Tuesday between 62 and 77 days from the date Walker calls for them.
