Appleton Dem: “We Have No Case on ‘Illegal Vote.'”

Rather shocking admission from Appleton Democrat Penny Bernard Schaber to WFRV 5 in Green Bay.

The battle over the Budget Repair Bill has moved on from the state assembly, but days after the vote is over opponents are still upset with how it went down.

“To say that we’re calling the vote: ‘Yes! No! Done!’ in 17 seconds doesn’t seem like it’s following any kind of Roberts Rules of Order,” said Natalie Bowman, who opposes the Budget Repair Bill.

“We are looking into what rule infractions there are,” said Rep. Penny Bernard Schaber (D) Appleton. “We don’t believe we can legally say they did something illegal because these are the rules the assembly sees for themselves.”

Oops, looks like someone needs to get her talking points with Madison in order.

For days, the AssDems have been claiming the 1 AM vote last week was illegal, hell Mark Pocan and Kelda Helen Roys are holding another unauthorized “Kangaroo Court” of a hearing on the bill right now — a bill that’s already been passed in the chamber mind you — just to keep the protesters inside the state capitol and here you have one of their own members telling a town hall in her district, “We don’t believe he have a case!”

I’ve said previously that I wasn’t too keen on the speed in how the vote occurred, but to call it “illegal” is grasping at straws.  Then again, I’ve also heard the biggest regrets for some Assemblymen is that they weren’t in the Assembly Chamber when the vote was taken, it’s that they froze and didn’t push the button in time.
