Crybaby Republicans may try to curb new Wisconsin governor's power in lame-duck session

Scott Walker may have conceded, but his legacy will hang over Wisconsin for decades like a bratwurst fart.

The list of things Tony Evers will have to unfuck is long and depressing (thanks for kneecapping the UW System so you could outpoll Jim Gilmore, dude), and now Wisconsin Republicans are signaling that they plan to make the already Sisyphean task of nursing the Badger State back to health that much harder.

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

[A]ssembly Speaker Robin Vos hinted Wednesday that GOP lawmakers may have unfinished business with Walker before he leaves office.

Speaking to reporters at the state Capitol, Vos suggested he may seek to curtail the governor's powers during a lame-duck session before Evers takes office in January.

“If there are areas we could look and say 'Geez, have we made mistakes where we granted too much power to the executive,' I'd be open to taking a look & saying 'what could we do to change that?'” Vos, R-Rochester, said.

The next time I hear a Republican complain about Democrats being obstructionists, I may just lose my mind. Which, granted, would be uncannily like living in Wisconsin for the past eight years.
