In Wisconsin, Republican lawmakers are refusing to accept the voters’ will.

Instead of preparing to work with Gov.-elect Tony Evers, a Democrat, Republicans are furiously working to undercut his authority as well as that of incoming Attorney General Josh Kaul, also a Democrat.

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Republican-controlled Legislature passed bills that affect gubernatorial appointments to agencies as well as the governor’s ability to make any changes to the state’s strict voter ID laws  or  change work requirements for food stamps.
