Wisconsin’s Democratic governor sues Republican Legislature over blocking basic functions

December 5, 2023

Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers on Tuesday sued the Republican-controlled Legislature, arguing that it is obstructing basic government functions, including signing off on pay raises for university employees that were previously approved. Evers is asking the liberal-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court to take the case directly, bypassing lower courts. Evers said it was “a bridge too far” and “just bull s—” that Republican state lawmakers were telling 35,000 University of Wisconsin employees who were expecting pay raises to “stick it.”
