Where the GOP can’t win elections, it changes the rules. Is anyone surprised it was the Republicans who engaged in voter fraud?
The GOP’s underhanded dealing in Wisconsin and Michigan is just the latest in a trend of Republicans upending principles of good government and democratic accountability for political gain. The party’s massive resistance to President Barack Obama culminated in a debt-ceiling fiasco and an improperly denied Supreme Court seat.
WISCONSIN’S Republican-controlled legislature sprinted Tuesday to pass a hastily drafted package of bills that would strip power from the governor and state attorney general. Michigan Republicans are trying a similar maneuver. The reason: Democrats won elections last month, and Republican lawmakers will have to share power with them come January.
