620WTMJ: MADISON - The 14 Wisconsin state Senate Democrats who left the state two weeks ago will now face fines of $100 for each day they miss, if they miss two or more days.
Republicans remaining in the Senate approved the daily fine on Wednesday morning with none of the Democrats present.[...]
The resolution passed on Wednesday also requires the missing Democrats to reimburse the Senate for any costs incurred during attempts to force them to return. Their salary and other per diem payments can be withheld until they pay back the penalties and costs.These Wisconsin Republicans are slow thinkers. This resolution should have been brought up on day two of the Fleebaggers absence. The $100 fine is way too skimpy. No doubt the Fleebaggers' union bosses will be reimbursing them.
According to TODAY'S TMJ4's Mick Trevey, there are punishments incorporated into the resolution which would allow for the removal of offices from senators, to downsize their offices, to take away spending capabilities for their offices for photocopies and office supplies, even to changing the way the staffs are run.
The two-day clock would not begin until Thursday, and if senators do not return two days later, the $100 fines and other measures could possibly begin.
If the Republican senators want the Fleebaggers to return, they are going to have to inflict much more pain than that. For starters they can get behind the recall effort just like the Democrats are doing. Then start passing legislation that any self respecting Democrat cannot abide by. A good starting point would be to start passing some serious Pro-Life legislation, like completely defunding Planned Parenthood. That will get the Fleebagger's attention.
