Top Gear: Get Drunk And Carry On

According to Twitter, apparently nobody is being allowed to enter the capitol building at this time. Oh, according to this, here's the new entry requirements into the building. People are not being let into the building unless they have official business or are attending a hearing.

I suppose breaking state law is all right when you're the governor. The state constitution prohibits this. (Article I, §4 – ANNOT. The legislature cannot prohibit an individual from entering the capitol or its grounds. [59 Atty. Gen. 8.]) Thank you Twitter.

I'm too tired to be as outraged as I should be. I'm also not remotely surprised.

ETA: Call Rep. Roys at 608.266.5340 to set up a meeting, this should get you in.

ETA Again: Apparently a lawsuit has just been filed against the state for not letting people into the building at a US District Court.

ETA One more time: Apparently Rep. Roys cannot get into the capitol either! WHAT THE FUCK?!

ETA Once more with feeling: Walker and GOP Senators are having the windows of the building welded shut. Legal action is being taken against this. HOLY SHIT. Wow. Fire hazard much? What the fuck do they think they're fucking DOING?!

As always, my source is Twitter, so some of this may be incorrect, but then again, it's scary how easy it is to believe that it's all true.

I have to spend the day doing real-life stuff, so I may not be all that fast with the news, but leave me stuff in comments and I'll update this post as needed.

WTF? I thought they were supposed to open for "business as usual" at 8am?
i just heard brett hulsey talking about this - he's fighting it - but we really need an injunction, or intervention by the sheriff - there is enough to arrest the governor now - (not to mention things like child endangerment implicit in the bill, and a shitload more)
