In WI, Republicans—who lost in Nov—are trying to undermine democracy by stripping power from the incoming Dem governor & AG (see thread). Time is SHORT. Here's what you can do...

Want to fight the Republican power grab in Wisconsin? No matter where you are, you can call WI voters in key areas to tell them what's going on and urge them to call their state senators, 9am-10pm CT. Volunteers needed!
If you're in Milwaukee, head to the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO at 6333 W Bluemound Rd on Mon 10/3 & Tue 10/4 from 10a to 7p to join the in-person phone bank & call voters in key districts. When people hear what's happening, they're outraged. Go! Go!

On November 6, the state of Wisconsin came out to vote. It was an historic event in that it was not a Presidential election but turnout was enormous. Everyone knew what was at stake.

Voting Rights

It was hard fought and won by Democrats.
But as soon as Democrats won, the GOP began planning to reduce Tony Evers’ power. While Tony spoke of cooperation, they met in secret to discuss ways to keep their power and steal his. They announced their full plans Friday - and will vote on Tuesday - with 1 day for review.
We’ve seen this before. It happened when the GOP tried to take our healthcare and the ACA in Washington. Closed-door meetings and no time for review. Just a massive plan and a quick vote.

That’s not politics. That’s a power-play. And it’s not how a democracy works. Not here.

BREAKING—as in breaking democracy: a truly shocking & naked power grab underway in Wisconsin. Dems won every statewide race this Nov. Now, the GOP unveiled sweeping bills to straightjacket the Gov & AG, stomp on early voting, & lock in power on state Sup Court. Votes THIS TUE. 1/
The #WIpowergrab is so awful that it's literally keeping me up at night. The plans have been rumored for weeks, but the WI GOP waited until Friday afternoon to unveil their stack of bills, plans ONE hearing on Monday, and votes on Tuesday. So opposition is needed *now.*
In Wisconsin, right now, the GOP has total control: the governorship, both chambers of the state legislature, and a majority on the Supreme Court. That's one big reason why Trump won WI in 2016—because they'd rigged the rules. Now they want to prevent Dems from unrigging them.
