Democratic Lawmaker Alleges All-Night Lame-Duck Legislative Session Was Illegal

A Democratic member of the Wisconsin Assembly plans to file a complaint alleging the all-night lame-duck legislative session in December violated the open meetings law. 

Representative Jimmy Anderson is paralyzed and can't sit in his wheelchair for more than a day.  He had to leave hours before the Assembly voted.  A spokesperson says the open meetings law means duly elected members of government bodies can't be excluded.  Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne could file a suit seeking to void the votes if he feels they were illegal.
