The Republican sneak vote mapped.

From the Acceity web journal

Here’s the vote from last Friday February 25 mapped out by Josh Wachuta at Aceity.

I’m assuming the grey non-voting areas are matched with the Democrats who were too slow on the uptake. As you recall, this was a sneak voice vote that occured in seconds. It was orchestrated by Republicans to deliberately exclude Democrats.  It passed the Assembly version of Walker’s “Budget Repair Bill” at 1AM after a 60+ hour marathon session.

Here’s the vote roll. If you’re still not sure which of these men and ladies represent you in your district, plug your address into Who Are My Legislators?

If you’re not happy with how your Assembly Representative voted, give ’em a piece of your mind. Godspeed.

Here’s Josh’s twitter home.

At 1AM Friday February 25, Assembly Republicans Pass Budget Bill with Seconds-long Roll Call Vote.

Video of Assembly Democrats outraged following sneak vote:

and the same moment from David Douglas of News 3:

From the New York Times: “…Debate had gone on for 60 hours and 15 Democrats were still waiting to speak when the vote started around 1 a.m. Friday. Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, opened the roll and closed it within seconds.

Democrats looked around, bewildered. Only 13 of the 38 Democratic members managed to vote in time.

Republicans immediately marched out of the chamber in single file. The Democrats rushed at them, pumping their fists and shouting “Shame!” and “Cowards!”

The Republicans walked past them without responding.

Democrats left the chamber stunned. The protesters greeted them with a thundering chant of “Thank you!” Some Democrats teared up. Others hugged.

“What a terrible, terrible day for Wisconsin,” said Rep. Jon Richards, D-Milwaukee. “I am incensed. I am shocked.”…”
