Wisconsin Supreme Court Strikes Down Leftwing Governor Tony Evers' Lawless Mask Mandate

Are we still a free people? There seems to be some contentious debate on the point.

The legislature had stripped him of his emergency powers to act as a tyrant, and required him to work through normal legislative channels to pass new impositions on the public.

He said "Fuck you, I'm the King."

Apparently it is now controversial -- per AP's rendering -- to require the executive to secure the consent of the legislature before passing new laws.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' statewide mask mandate Wednesday, stripping the governor of one of his last remaining tools to curb large-scale spread of COVID-19 as the state stands on the precipice of another surge in infections.

Oh, you mean they're Killing Grandma, huh?

Ask Cuomo, Murphy, Wolffe and Whitmer about Killing Grandma -- for real.

But you don't want to talk about that.

No, just more bullshit about people having to wear masks outdoors when they're jogging.

The conservative-leaning court ruled 4-3 that Evers violated state law by unilaterally issuing multiple emergency orders to extend the mandate for months. The court found Evers needed legislative approval to issue more orders after the initial 60-day mandate he issued in August expired.

"The question in this case is not whether the governor acted wisely; it is whether he acted lawfully. We conclude he did not," Justice Brian Hagedorn wrote for the majority.

The decision marks another legal defeat for Evers. The Supreme Court in May struck down his stay-at-home order, finding that his health secretary lacked the authority to issue such an order. A state appeals court blocked Evers' attempts to limit capacity in bars, restaurants and other indoor places in October.
