    The Rochester Republican and his attorneys refused to accept a subpoena, turn over documents and agree to have him sit for a deposition because they maintain he is immune from civil legal actions.

    Bold move, Cotton. Lets see how that works out for you.

    Refusing to testify always looks good.

    Can they charge him with contempt?

    If so, is there any legal recourse for them? Can they lock him up?

    This is nuts. He is not immune from civil legal actions. I see he is taking a page out of Trumps defense. What utter nonsense.

    He answers to the Koch Bros, not Wisconsin citizens.

    We're falling apart.

    It turns out that so much of our system relies on acting in good faith... Or at least being shamed by your constituents when you don't. Instead, the right has learned that they have cheerleaders instead of civil citizens. They a minority, but a big enough one where they can squeak by via cheating.

    Republicans from the top to the bottom are refusing to comply with oversight. the time for lenience and civility is over! take them into custody by force and make them stand trial for their crimes!

    the GOP crime family needs to be reminded that they are not above the law.

    Wisconsin state Republicans really suck.

    They should subpoena him directly and hold him in contempt if he doesn't comply. Legislative immunity my ass.

    Doesn't want to go to jail for perjury when he lies about how the lines were drawn to disenfranchise voters.

    Hunh. Wonder what they would all say if ___________ simply said 'no' when called before a GOP lead inquiry.

    Wisconsin GOP are the biggest little bitches. They can’t win fairly so they pull shit like gerrymandering and restricting power when they’re not in power.

    When you’ve engaged in despicable activity to diminish the voting rights of citizens, it makes sense that you hide, lie, and forget lots of stuff.

    Vos is our own version of Mitch McConnell.

    Incase you didn’t know; Wisconsin is the most racially segregated state in the country.

    So, do you think the courts will rule the correct way on this?
