It ain't over ...

The WI Assembly ain't giving up, even though the Rethugs pushed through the vote on the "budget repair bill" in the wee hours of the morning:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Assembly Democratic leaders said they are researching whether a hasty vote to pass Governor Walker's controversial budget repair bill was sufficiently flawed to be invalidated.

"We're looking at whether or not anything is legally or constitutionally problematic," said Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha).

The vote shortly after one a.m. Friday was taken abruptly, with the measure passing 51-17, with more than two dozen Democrats unable to get to voting mechanisms in the chamber in time to record their votes.


Good on them. It's nice to see they're not rolling over in the face of procedural shenanigans from the Corporatists.
