    "An Indiana prosecutor said one of his deputies resigned Thursday after admitting he sent an email to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker suggesting Walker fake an attack on himself to discredit the unions protesting his plans."

    "You guys built the middle class. I would just emphasize what Hilda [Solis] said and say it slightly different: We don’t see the value of collective bargaining, we see the absolute positive necessity of collective bargaining. Let’s get something straight: The only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor. And make no mistake about it, the guys on the other team get it. They know if they cripple labor, the gate is open, man. The gate is wide open. And we know that too."

    Aren't You Glad You Didn't Vote? →

    Here’s Ed Schultz, pre-midterms:

    And I’m announcing today, I’m not going to vote in the midterms. I’m not going to do it. You can say it’s un-American. No, it’s rather revolutionary is what it is. I’m at that point. I’m checking out. I’m checking out of the Democrats because they are proving to me that they don’t know how to handle these big babies over on the right that say no. You know what you do? You get in the driver’s seat, you hit the throttle, and you run over them.

    In hindsight, this attitude hasn’t resulted in anything positive, has it. And no, I’m not suggesting that Ed’s decision to sit out the midterms resulted in the election of Scott Walker in Ed’s home state of Wisconsin. That would be crazy.

    TPM Reader SG checks in from Wisconsin:

    It’s not just the budget bill needs a quorum — the big issue is that *any* bill with fiscal implications is supposed to have a quorum in the Wisconsin state Senate. So there are two choices here:

    1. Collective bargaining has fiscal implications, and so the bill will be blocked in the courts and ruled unconstitutional.

    2. Collective bargaining DOES NOT have direct fiscal implications, and Gov. Walker has been lying this entire time by making the case that it’s fiscally necessary.

    So either the state R’s just passed an illegal bill, or Walker has been lying this entire time and really is just interested in union-busting.

    LOL GOP.

    Forward: WTF Wisconsin 2.0 →

    wisconsinforward:

    The bill that strips public employees of collective bargaining passed the Senate 18-1 (all Republicans; Wisconsin 14 still in Illinois although they are reportedly now heading back; Schultz was the one “no” vote).

    The bill now has to go to the Assembly.  The capitol is once again being closed to the public and the capitol police are now moving to evacuate members of the public from the building.  None of the Republican Senators who just voted to pass this will speak to the press or the public.  Sorry for this super rambling post…this is all happening very quickly and nobody saw it coming.  As soon as I can get facts together, I will try to explain more fully.

    "Without unions, without collective bargaining and workers sticking together, employers would dictate working conditions, hours, wages, and benefits without any input from the workers. And without unions, there would be no American middle-class. There would be the rich and the poor — no in-between."

    As Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and the state’s Department of  Administration continued to refuse to comply with a court order to allow  the public back into the Capitol Building in Madison, Democratic  lawmakers literally climbed out their windows to meet with constituents  on the Capitol lawn today.
[…] “You guys couldn’t get into our offices,” [Brian Schroeder, a staffer for Rep. Zepnick] told the people who stopped by, “so we’re bringing our offices to you.”
