UP: Gov. Scott Walker and the GOP. The state Supreme Court vindicates the Republican agenda by ruling that Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi "usurped the legislative power" in voiding the budget repair bill.

They should not engage in this disinformation."

Martin will be leaving after just three years to take a job as president of Amherst College. When the going gets tough, the not-so-tough get…the hell out of Wisconsin.
