Once Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi issued a temporary restraining order against Scott Walkers union-busting bill. Attorney General JB Van Hollen, worked with lightning speed to file an appeal(If only he had moved so fast when his good friend was preying on women).
As part of JB’s appeal:
The “Petition for Leave to Appeal” filed by the Department of Justice lawyers concludes with the words “Secretary La Follette respectfully requests… an ex parte order granting temporary relief from the TRO entered by Judge Sumi on March 18, 2011..
Except Oops…No one asked Secretary of State Doug La Follette:
But the Department of Justice attorneys did not consult La Follette about whether he has any objection to Judge Sumi’s order.
The secretary of state says he has not complained about the judge’s order.
Indeed, he says, he has already acted in accordance with it, in a move that he says allows him to “fulfill the public trust in my office.”
Finally Maybe La Follette should be Governor:
La Follette concluded by encouraging all parties to “work together and talk to each other to come up with a solution to the current situation that serves the public trust in our institutions of government.”
If anyone has an opinion on this please share it with Mr. Van Hollen:
