Good read about Walkers failed power-grab. [View all]

“The proposed bill would have made several changes to Wisconsin law on special elections to fill state senate or assembly seats

“If successful, Walker’s proposal would have offered new and interesting strategies for future governors intent on molding the legislature to their liking. Presumably, the calling of a special election would become discretionary. With no legal requirement to promptly call a special election a governor could promptly call special elections to fill vacancies in districts likely to be won by his or her own party, while ignoring vacancies in districts favoring the other party.”
