Details to Today’s WI Assembly Vote- “If Building Is Secure, Vote Will Be Taken”
Wisconsin citizen journalist Josiah Cantrall sent this update from the mob scene at the Wisconsin State Capitol – The Wisconsin Assembly is scheduled to vote today.
From last night–
We have almost completely lost control of the Capitol building. We now only control the 3rd and 4th floors.
Teachers Unions are sending out robo calls and emails to all their members, asking them to get to the capitol NOW. We know this as a fact.
Democrat Senators are opening windows and letting protesters in. Door’s are ripped off their hinges.
Next 6-8 hours will determine who controls the capitol. If we lose control, the assembly can’t meet tomorrow.
Quasi-military forces are the only option to win back control of building. They are very close to being called in.
Law enforcement are leaking legislators whereabouts to protesters. No one is safe.
They escorted State Senators across the street via an underground tunnel. It’s top secret, but protesters were waiting for them.
National Guard may be called in….plans have been set.
Thursday AM Update:
They are still planning on convening at 11 am CST. If they can get control of the building… As of right now, even the legislators themselves aren’t sure of it’s status.
Today members of the Assembly will be going to Madison though.
At a certain time, security forces will pick up legislators from their houses, proceed to Madison, drop them off at another secure location where they will receive new instructions.
Madison police won’t be used due to their lack of cooperation. State troopers and other statewide security forces will provide the escort.
If they get inside, they will give the Democrats a set time when the vote will take place. No amendments. Democrats are free to do whatever in the meantime. Go into caucus, scream at the Republican etc. But once they reach the set time, if the building is still secure, the vote will be taken.
For security reasons, exact time of vote will not be released until 11 am.
