One Wisconsin Now Statements on Sumi Ruling Against Walker, GOP Lawlessness
‘Judge Sumi Decision Affirms This is Wisconsin, Not Hazzard County’
Madison – One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding Judge Maryann Sumi’s striking down of Gov. Scott Walker's and the legislative Republicans’ lawless passage of a bill repealing the rights of 175,000 working Wisconsinites.
“We applaud Judge Sumi for upholding the laws of Wisconsin and rejecting Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican legislative majority’s unlawful passage of a bill slashing the rights of 175,000 working Wisconsinites. Gov. Walker and the Republicans may think they are above the law like Boss Hogg and Rosco P. Coltrane, but Judge Sumi’s decision affirms this is Wisconsin, not Hazzard County.”
