"Regardless of the outcome, the swearing in isn't till August 1," he said.


Regardless, it is a great victory to the state of WI.

..As they spoke, Kloppenburg led the vote count with a few precincts still left to tally. That freed up Larson and Miller to speculate about what would happen if she won.

"If Kloppenburg does come out on top," said Larson, "you're going to see a shift in tone from the Republican. Right now they're almost cocky that they're going to be victorious in the courts. I think they've been acting like cowboys because they have know they have a conservative majority if Prosser wins. Yesterday, though, you saw a very nervous Fitzgerald float the idea of putting the budget repair bill back in the budget and passing it again."

A common misconception about this election has been that a Kloppenburg win would reset the clock on the budget repair bill, because Democrats have successfully -- so far -- tied it up in court. Miller poured some cold water on that theory.

"Regardless of the outcome, the swearing in isn't till August 1," he said. "It's not likely that decisions coming to the Court regarding the budget repair bill will come after that." He was more optimistic about the influence Kloppenburg would have on future cases, and the possibility of a court without Prosser, who'd been a Republican legislator before joining the court.

1. This is what I've been wondering about.
I've been thinking that the swearing in wouldn't happen immediately and the case might get to the SC before that.

3. "...so we'll have plenty of time to cram in our extreme anti-worker agenda"
before Kloppenberg is an issue. (reading between the lines) What a douche.
