To the editor:
(Re.“Ballweg’s mask repeal was shameful,” Feb. 4, 2021) When a public servant takes office they swear to uphold the Constitution which is exactly what Sen. Joan Ballweg did in voting to make Tony Evers obey the 60 day limit on emergency orders.
You ignored the fact the WI Supreme Court ruling in May that confirmed that Evers flipped off his constitutional limits, acting instead as a dictator. The law says specifically that after 60 days, he is to meet with the legislature on any future actions. Evers has refused to do so for 6 months now, breaking the law.
It doesn’t matter Mr. editor if you believe your desired end justifies using any means to do it. The law says the legislature has the power, not a governor. And if Evers would cease acting like a dictator, compromising with legislators as per the law, there could be agreement. You owe Sen. Ballweg a public apology
