    The republican legislature in Wisconsin is presently trying to ram through bills/laws to effectively neuter the newly elected governor's powers.

    This morning, I emailed the following letter to the Democratic Part of North Carolina:

    ********************************************************************************

    Gentlemen:

    Ever since Roy Asberry Cooper III was elected governor of North Carolina, the North Carolina legislature has passed illegal bills to reduce his power. Although the governor HAS vetoed some of the bills, there may still be others that need to be removed. The actions of the North Carolina has also inspired legislators in other states (such as Wisconsin) to take similar action.

    Fortunately, there is a constitutional remedy to counter this blatant abuse of power.

    The link below provides complete information, but the relevant parts are here:

    Recall In some states, state legislators and other state or local elected officials may be removed from office before the expiration of their established terms not only by action of the legislature itself through an expulsion (or for executive officers, through an “impeachment” and conviction by the legislature), but also by the voters through a “recall” election procedure. While an expulsion is an internal authority of legislative bodies incident to their general powers over their own proceedings and Members, recall is a special process outside of the legislature itself, exercised by the people through a special election. Recall provisions for state or local officers became popular in the “progressive movement,” particularly in the western and plains states, in the early part of the 20th Century

    Under Article I, Section 5, clause 2, of the Constitution, a Member of Congress may be removed from office before the normal expiration of his or her constitutional term by an “expulsion” from the Senate (if a Senator) or from the House of Representatives (if a Representative) upon a formal vote on a resolution agreed to by two-thirds of the Members of that body present and voting. While there are no specific grounds for an expulsion expressed in the Constitution, expulsion actions in both the House and the Senate have generally concerned cases of perceived disloyalty to the United States, or the conviction of a criminal statutory offense which involved abuse of one’s official position.

    In the case of North Carolina, a good place to start would be the Senate President and the Speaker of the House, since they have clearly abused their power.

    You should also be aware of the fact that there is a legal precedent for reversing the results of an election when voter fraud was involved. The link below provides more information, but bear in mind that the fraud also involved absentee ballots:

    As a result, it should not be necessary to hold a special election to install Dan McReady as the representative for the 9th district in North Carolina.

    I mentioned recently that the Wisconsin legislature had just passed some bills that would limit the power of the incoming Democratic governor and attorney general.

    This morning, Scott Walker signed them into law.

    Wisconsin is one of a handful of states where the legislature meets during the last 2 months of the year. Ominously, Michigan is another one, and they are trying to pull the same nonsense that Wisconsin just did.

    At this point, the incoming Democrats only have one option:

    Sue the bastards.
