In Wisconsin the teachers can't teach, doctors write fraudulent sick notes for public employees, the fire marshal won't uphold the capacity limit at the state capitol, the cops won't uphold the law and the senators run away when they don't get their way. The citizens of Wisconsin should strike over paying taxes since it doesn't seem to be used for any type of services.And one of their state Senators applies for an absentee ballot to be sent to Illinois for their April 5th election.
You used to have to have a good excuse for an absentee ballot--like being disabled, or being out of town on business.
What business are they up to in Illinois? Our Dem-run state is actually bankrupt. Wisconsin has been heading that way, but with this vote by the GOP they are dealing responsibly with their unsustainable entitlements.

I saw the head of the Madison fireman's union on last night expressing solidarity, despite the crush of the crowd and locked doors by protesters (where'd they get the handcuffs?) creating a fire trap.

...And from The Daily Grind:And Heritage sums it up, with this clarification, blunting the Dems' flimsy objections (camped out in Illinois):
Senate Democrats, who are still hiding in Illinois, are now claiming that the majority’s committee meeting that broke up the budget-repair bill violated Wisconsin’s Open Meetings Law. But the Open Meeting Compliance Guide clearly states that when there is “good cause,” only two hours’ notice is required. The Senate majority did provide the two hours’ notice. If the Senate Democrats’ 19-day refusal to show up for work wasn’t “good cause” enough, certainly minimizing the opportunity for union mob violence is.
