The Speaker's Judgement Is Impaired

Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca tried to have Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, brother of Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, removed from his post citing his "impaired judgement." Unfortunately, for the state of Wisconsin and its public workers, this will probably fail. We live in "Fitzwalkerstan," but didn't know it.

However, Barca has also filed a complaint with the Dane County District Attorney regarding the legality of the vote last night. Barca asks that the vote be voided "to avoid irreparable injury to the public." This probably has merit, as the Republican State Attorney General wrote a memo last year expressing the illegality of not providing proper notice.

Update: The measure to remove Speaker Fitzgerald failed as I wrote the post.
