Wisconsin Supreme Court Strikes Down Governor's Mask Mandate

The conservative-leaning Wisconsin Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down Democrat Governor Tony Evers' statewide mask mandate in a 4-3 ruling.

The state supreme court ruled that Evers violated the law by unilaterally issuing multiple emergency orders and circumventing the state legislature.

"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.

Evers fought very hard to keep the mask mandate in place and ignored the will of the legislature, the body closest to the people that voted to repeal the mask mandate.

So, since Evers violated the law, and even fought the will of the legislature, and even fought the will of the people, what's he going to get as punishment? Is he going to get a simple reprimand?, slap on the hand?, a big (little) fine?, imprisonment? What? --- If the people don't force some worthwhile punishment, what good is a court ruling? If he isn't made to hurt, he'll do it all over again. Punish him so that he knows better next time. --- In Arizona, Ducey is being recalled. And he cancelled his usurpation, somewhat. Should he be punished, as well?
