Dane County, Wisconsin Judge Maryann Sumi issued a stern warning to out-of-control governor Scott Walker and the lemming-like Republicans who follow him: Obey the court or their a$$ is grass.
Sumi obviously didn’t like Walker’s attempt to circumvent her injunction blocking implementation of his efforts to strip the state’s public employee unions of collective bargaining rights so she clarified her position Tuesday in a stinging rebuke of the governor and the Legislative Reference Bureau, which published the law last Friday and gave Walker an excuse to try and implement in violation of the court ruling.
Sumi lashed out, saying “apparently that language [in the ruling] was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation [of the collective-bargaining bill] was enjoined. That is now what I want to make crystal clear.”
Sumi warned Walker and his fellow Republicans that “willful defiance of a court order” will subject them to sanctions from the court.
Looks like the Wisconsin Republicans are running into a little bump in the road
