Gov. Tony Evers had a most tool-worthy week.
The Democrat tried — and failed — to use his liberal “privilege” to submit more information explaining why he thinks the Wisconsin Supreme should uphold his unconstitutional, racially gerrymandered maps.
Denied, the court quickly informed Evers, who, according to attorneys representing the Legislature, “misunderstands much.”
“He should receive no special litigating privileges in this Court. And the expert opinion he would lob in does nothing to address the evidentiary gaps the United States Supreme Court has identified,” the attorneys wrote in a filing to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
But the governor really believes in his heart that his redistricting plan is special. It also violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection and the Voting Rights Act by creating a phantom 7th black district. Evers does so to the disadvantage of black voters and for the benefit of the Democratic Party. Because that’s what it’s really all about for Tony the tool: liberal partisan politics first.
The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s 4-3 ruling approving Evers’ gerrymandered maps. The federal court took aim at a majority of Wisconsin Supreme Court justices (three liberals and another liberal posing as a conservative) that clearly “misunderstands” the constitution and the Voter Rights Act. Yet, Evers was hoping to game the system again, defending the indefensible. The state Supreme Court said no.
Also last week, Evers vetoed a bill that defines what a riot is in state statute, and creates criminal penalties for those attending and engaging in a riot.
This is the same governor whose incendiary comments helped light the fuse on the Kenosha riots of 2020, the same governor who was slow to send in adequate National Guard numbers to stop the looters and smashers the left likes to call “peaceful protesters.”
“The bottom line is Governor Evers purposely delayed providing support to communities that were faced with the kind of violence not seen in decades. It’s unsurprising that he now chooses to veto this bill and support rioters. Wisconsinites deserve better,” said state Rep John Spiros (R-Marshfield), co-author of the bill.
Tony Evers has governed as a tool of the left.
This week, he is once again Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
