Hey, sore losing GOP 'leaders' - - consult this vocal opponent of election calendar changes

[Updated, 3:00 p.m.] All that expertise right in the right's backyard.

Which means the grasping after election advantage by Wisconsin Sore Losers' Club, FitzWalkerVos Chapter could be easily side-tracked if club members would consult the in-state elections and budget expert who had earlier very publicly-framed the issues in a way all Republicans could easily understand.

Remember earlier this year, when Walker decided that his creating two legislative vacancies by moving Republicans incumbents into cushy, pension-boosting Big Government jobs didn't mean he had to call routine special elections to prevent thousands of Wisconsin citizens from being stripped of State Capitol representation for up to a year.

Set aside for a moment that the wonderfully-ironic slap down Walker got for that stunt was delivered by a judge Walker had appointed.

Instead, keep in mind that it was The Sore Losers' Club Fitz himself

who argued at the time that any reasonable person would understand all the problems an extra, out-of-sequence would create:
“The logistics of this is very messy,” Fitzgerald said... The average taxpayer is going to be like, ‘You’re kidding me.’”
[Update] In fact, an even more senior expert said it would throw taxpayers' money away:
Walker himself cited cost as a factor, speaking to reporters in Pewaukee: "It’s just a waste of taxpayers’ money..." 
But, you know, this time's different, because a) it's what the party used to one-party rule prefers, and because only 30 county clerks have complained about the $6.8 million tab.

$6.8 million? Chicken-feed to these fiscal conservatives.

Remember, the same FitzWalkerVos trio have set it up so that state and local taxpayers will shovel almost exactly that same amount Foxconn's way ($3 billion divided by 15 (years) divided by 52 (weeks), or $3,846,133 per week) every two weeks - - with Racine-area local taxpayers - - a/k/a Vos constituents - - paying extra, so about the money - - pffft!.
