Wisconsin Government Accountability Board Backs Down

There is a tremendous lesson here.  While we won this battle, the war is never over.  Considering how blatantly unconstitutional the new rules were, it is noteworthy that they were constructed by a group of retired judges.  When judges make rules like these, is it any wonder we have a constitutional crisis on our hands?  We can never let our guard down, and must continue to educate everyone we come in contact with regarding issues like this.  Since they had the audacity to even bring this up, rest assured we will see this again sometime in the future.
