..........................

The nonpartisan organization discovered the GOP has spent $8.5 million on lawsuits against changes in election laws, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers's response to the coronavirus pandemic and limiting the powers that Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul hold, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

..................

One of the lawsuits launched by Republicans was successful with a judge ruling to end Eversís stay-at-home order last year during the pandemic, according to the local outlet.

After the report was released, Democratic lawmakers on the finance committee attempted to make a rule where attorneys would have to be voted on by the legislature.

The motion failed, but four Democrats on the Joint Finance Committee, led by Republicans, did say the report "underscores the misplaced priorities of Republicans and their disastrous financial choices that are jeopardizing billions for Wisconsin's economy."

When the WI Repugs do not like something Gov Evers does, they take him to court--waste WI tax dollars over and over. WI is so gerrymandered last last that it is impossible to stop the Repugs from wasting money. damn

1. True

Republicans operate with impunity in Wisconsin and the state is a Republican petri dish for the rest of the country.

If we cannot or do not stop the gerrymandering that will take place in a Republican controlled legislature, Democracy is over for Wisconsin.

2. Quantifies some of the damage Wisconsin RepubliQan legislators have done

Only some.
They did not meet for almost a year during the pandemic, did not help us with Covid at all, and yet managed to spend vast amounts of energy and money blocking Governor Evers and our Health Secretary (designee, they wouldn't even confirm her) who have been heroic in working for public health and safety.
Bastards.
