Evers is moving fast to get the high court to give the Executive Branch more unrestrained power.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Democratic Gov. on Tuesday sued the Republican-controlled Legislature, arguing that it is obstructing basic government functions, including signing off on pay raises for university employees that were previously approved.
Evers is asking the liberal-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court to take the case directly, bypassing lower courts.
Evers said it was “a bridge too far” and “just bull s—” that Republican state lawmakers were telling 35,000 University of Wisconsin employees who were expecting pay raises to “stick it.”
