‘Banana republic dictators’: Democrats fume over last-minute GOP power-grabs in Wisconsin, Michigan
Democrats fought back Monday as Republican legislators in Wisconsin and Michigan moved to strip power from them after the GOP lost a series of crucial races last month.
In Wisconsin, Republicans pressed ahead with a lame-duck session — the first held in eight years — to give GOP Gov. Scott Walker the opportunity to limit the power of his successor, Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers. The Republican measures would also change the date of the 2020 presidential primary to benefit a conservative state Supreme Court justice and limit early voting.
If passed, the state Senate and Assembly could vote on the measures on Tuesday, just days after Republicans released their plan to weaken the authority of both Evers’ and incoming Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul.
