    Fitzgerald and his team had any idea the "open meeting" law even existed, much less understood that they were supposed to be honoring it.

    As for promises to never do it again, good luck with that. WI GOP has proven themselves to be irredeemable on this point. Unfortunately the rest of the Dem terms in office will be characterized by walking out of the state. GOP is calculating they will be hurt when they attempt reelection. Moreover they are calculating that they will have to come back to the state in order to run for reelection.

    Either way, it's not looking like there's going to be any kind of legislative solution. It's going to be up to those hit hardest to impoverish themselves in the form of long term strikes, and firings, with the hopes of winning back lost salary when lawsuits are brought. This will exactly mirror Walker's strategy when he worked at the municipal level.
