WI State Senate: No Republicans sign letter supporting paralyzed Democrat

No Republicans have signed onto a letter supporting a paralyzed Democratic lawmaker who wants to be able to call into some meetings when he's not able to get there in person.

Rep. Jimmy Anderson, of Fitchburg, released the letter Wednesday that was signed by all 35 of his Democratic colleagues but not a single one of the 63 Republicans.

Anderson sent the letter to Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos. He has repeatedly denied Anderson's request for accommodations, including not holding floor sessions overnight and allowing him to call into committee meetings. That is currently barred under Assembly rules.

Vos has accused Anderson of "political grandstanding."

1. They've been this petty and mean since the 1980s.

Nothing's too small to be used for spite. Senate bathroom being painted? Don't inform Democratic offices.

2. The Repubs In Wisconsin are just plain mean

I thought the Republicans in Texas are a bunch of assholes. They canít compete with the sheer meanness of Wisconsin Republicans.
