To the editor, Rep. Tyler August’s (guest opinion) in the Dec. 16 edition of Walworth County Sunday is a great example of the faulty logic used by Wisconsin conservatives to justify their blatant, last-minute power grab prior to Governor-elect Tony Evers’ succession to Gov. Scott Walker.
What was so important about the extraordinary session bills and why would Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature stick their necks out in the face of national media blowback to pass them? Wisconsinites deserve to hear both sides.
As you know, the state Legislature took action recently to protect the strong conservative accomplishments that I have been a part of over the last eight years. Early actions by the incoming administration have shown an intent to weaken these reforms without including the legislature in the process. I could not idly sit by and let that happen.
To the editor, Remember Benito Mussolini, the dictator of Italy during World War II? He said the method by which you turn a country fascist is like plucking a chicken — one feather at a time. He promoted separating the squawks so they would be muted as much as possible.
