Evers Quietly Moves the Goal Post

It doesn’t really matter since he’s just going to keep issuing them for as long as he likes. Whither the Supreme Court?

MADISON —  Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ administration messed up the expiration date on the governor’s latest state mask mandate and then quietly “fixed” the error, an Empower Wisconsin review of executive order drafts finds.


While legislative legal experts say the governor didn’t violate the law or any administrative rules, his team’s surreptitious change is another example of a secretive administration that repeatedly has tried to govern unilaterally.


On Feb. 4, Evers issued the latest in a series of executive orders that included the statewide mask mandate — about an hour after the Legislature passed a resolution ending his previous mask mandate and his power to issue ceaseless emergency declarations.


The new order is supposed to expire on April 5, 60 days from its issuance. But Team Evers screwed up, copy and pasting March 20, the expiration date of his previous mask mandate, in the new order.


They later realized the mistake and edited it to correct the date. They did so without alerting the Legislature or the general public, with the exception of subsequently adding the word “Corrected” on the original press release. The updated version states,

    It’s nice to live in a county with no mask mandate and completely open.
    And my county, Mohave County in Arizona showed masks don’t work.
    When there spikes in the US, our cases spiked. When cases have gone down, our cases have gone down. Heck, we had only 32 new cases yesterday in the county that is big, area wise, as southern 1/3 of Wisconsin.

    Actually, if you drove from from the southeast part of our county to the fartherest part of the northwest part of the county, it would be like driving from Milwaukee to Fargo or Omaha.

    Another example of incompetence from Wisconsin’s executive branch.

    Dictatorial liberals.

    Nord cheers.

    I cheer for (in no particular order) : Packers, Brewers, Badgers, our HS teams, Dr. Fauci and his amazing staff, Gov. Evers each time he outwits our do nothing legislature, and President Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden.

    I see no “Dictatorial liberals”, so you are again making a false claim. So consistent, are you.

    And Le Roi cheers child porn perert judges. Cannot forget.
    Silence is violence, Troll Boy.

  7. Mar

    So, Le Roi cheers a fake doctor, a fraud, (Fauci is in both catagories)a senior with dementia, a very weak governor and blind to dictatorial liberals.
    No wonder Le Roi is such a screwed up sociopath.
    And if you no liberal dictators, then you never heard of what happened in California and NYC.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Sonds like you cheer your purposeful blindness too.

  9. Le Roi du Nord

    No k, it doesn’t sond like that at all.

    And I also cheer for the mental health professionals that could still help folks like you and mar. It is never too late to seek help.

    That’s the best you got Troll Boy? I know it was getting late for you, so like your hero, Senile Joe, when dusk begins, your remaining brain cells go into hibernation.
    So, finish your Ovaltine, eat a couple of Saltines, take your night time meds, put your teeth in the cup and waddle off to bed.
    But don’t forget to have your caregiver pull up your side rails and put a puppy training pads underneath your butt for those untimely night time accidents.

    Le Roi says: “I cheer for (in no particular order)….President Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden.”
    So, you are cheering the racist Senile Joe who loved Robert Byrd, was against desegregation, think all Blacks have to think alike, that Senile Joe?
    So, you are cheering the Senile Joe who invaded women’s spaces and has been accused of rape?
    Or do you cheer Senile Joe who, even to the average person, clearly has a mental deficiency?
    Do, I guess that makes you a racist, sexual predator and you hate America for having a mentally disabled president.
    Glad we cleared that up.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    Does this mean you will condemn the dictatorial action of Evers…

    Or just standby with your cheerleading pom poms at the ready?

  13. Le Roi du Nord


    Since that has only occurred in your made-up world, no I won’t cheer for it.


    Whatever I’ve got, even on my worst day, is far more intelligent than you constant name calling and fabricated nonsense. You will be far more happy if you embrace your limitations.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you are saying Evers is woefully wrong on this?

    Did you drink a dose of common sense this AM?

  15. Mar

    And Le Troll Boy posts another meaningless troll post.
    Le Roi lives in his own Groundhog Day movie, except he isn’t Bill Murray and Le Roi never gets the girl.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    No k, I’m not. Where did you get that goofy idea?


    So what did any your last 2000 posts add to any conversation?

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you cheer Evers action?

    Stop your complaining that I got it right the first time.

  18. Le Roi du Nord


    Some heartfelt advice: read and comprehend, or at least try, before touching the keyboard. You are making some pretty foolish comments.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann


    If you would make a clear thought on actual subject at hand rather than attacking my mental health…we could understand your Biden-like mumblings.

    Looks like you cheer the awful Evers action to me.
