    The warning notices to state workers, that part was just sick:

    So we’re trying about four or five different angles, so each day we crank up a little bit more pressure. The other thing is I’ve got layoff notices ready. We put out the at-risk notices. We’ll announce Thursday, and they’ll go out early next week. And we’ll probably get 5 to 6,000 state workers will get at-risk notices for layoffs. We might ratchet that up a little bit, you know.

    I think alot of people wouldn't think him tricking Dems into quorum as political tactic was wrong, given that breaking quorum is a political tactic on the Dems' part. The pay and ethics violations threats too, probably. But threatening workers with their jobs to pressure the Dem legislators is wrong, especially when the unions are giving ground to him on his pay/contributions demands anyway.
