Last week, a federal judge ruled that early voting restrictions signed into law during Wisconsin’s lame-duck session in December violated a 2016 court order. For the first part of today’s episode, we speak with Analiese Eicher, program director at One Wisconsin Now, one of the organizations that filed the court challenge.
Then, we hear from Representative Jimmy Anderson about the complaint he filed with the Dane County District Attorney’s Office that the all-night lame-duck legislative session violated the open-meetings law. Rep. Anderson was unable to attend the full meeting and vote with the Assembly due to a lack of advance notice and proper accommodations. “The 47th Assembly District voted for me wheelchair and all,” he says.
Note: There were technological difficulties midway through the live show. These have been edited out of the podcast, resulting in a slightly shorter episode than usual.
