Wisconsin Republicans Approve 82 Scott Walker Appointees In 1 Day

The move hinders the incoming Democratic governor from choosing his own people.

Republicans in the Wisconsin state Senate rushed to approve 82 of Gov. Scott Walker’s appointees, a month after voters chose not to reelect the Republican.

The GOP-controlled Legislature has been working with Walker to make sure that the incoming governor and attorney general, who are both Democrats, won’t have as much power as their Republican predecessors.

They’ve passed a series of bills in a lame-duck session that amount to nothing less than a brazen partisan power grab, taking responsibilities away from the governor and attorney general and giving them to the heavily gerrymandered Wisconsin Legislature. Walker is expected to sign them in the coming days.

3. They are morally bankrupt. And Trump is not to blame for their total lack of ethics.

It would be unfair to blame him for their actions. This is who the GOP is. Trump is a symptom, not the cause.

4. I hope Wisconsin voters remember this . . .

during the next election and vote all these people out. This is a direct assault on democracy and electoral results. The Republicans appear to have learned one thing from the Trumpster: how to be vindictive assholes.

7. They don't fucking care

their districts have been so fucking gerrymandered that they will only get more votes by pissing on Democrats.

They don't fucking give a shit. Their voters only care about one thing - "Owning the Libtards"

Retrumplicans could rape their voters kids on national TV, and Limbaugh would tell them; "well, at least it wasn't a French Surrender Monkey that was screwing your daughter"...the voters would respond; "Yeah, owned you, you fucking libtards".

They are beyond reason.

They are unable to feel shame.

They would sell their own mothers as long as their Retrumplican team would win.

The one thing that may help is TO FUCKING DESTROY EVERY GOD DAMNED RADIO STATION THAT BROADCASTS ONE FUCKING SECOND OF THEIR RETURMPLICAN PROPAGANDA...AND EVERY OTHER STATION AFFILIATED WITH IT

I don't give a fuck if their sister-station plays nothing but a local fucking cooking show...they must be destroyed

5. This once again proves that the only way for repubs to win is to lie, cheat, and/or steal...

you'd think that sooner or later just ONE of them would get a conscience.

6. Can't the incoming Governor just fire them all?

Better to have the appointments sit open than accept this fucking bullshit
