  •  This requires amending the WI Constitution.... (7+ / 0-)

    .... Which means it has to pass both houses of the current assembly (by simple majority), then pass both houses of the next assembly, elected in 2014 (also by simple majority); and then be ratified by majority vote as a referendum in a subsequent general election.

    I think all that could be done by April of 2015, when there will be a state-wide election for a WI Supreme Court seat. But no sooner than that, and maybe later.

    •  You're right about that (6+ / 0-)

      They gerrymandered the districts so they'll keep their majorities forever.

      The ONLY hope we have to stop them (outside of convincing Republicans to vote for Democratic candidates) is for the 3 judge panel overseeing the redistricting case to finally see the corruption of the Republican redistricting and redraw saner maps themselves.  Yes, they've done everything possible to avoid that in spite of GOP obstruction, lies, withholding documents, frivolous motions, but the revelations shown by their illegal document deletion program and obvious hard drive damage might just be the last straw.

      If Republicans keep their majorities, they'll easily get the 2 votes necessary to change the law.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
