WI Supremes: The Cause of Corruption?

When the WI Supremes, led by Screechin'Shirley, abrogated a Wisconsin constitutional amendment and reversed themselves on the Indian gaming issue, they (in effect) opened a door which leads straight to influence-peddling of the worst sort. They gave sole authority over Indian gaming to one person: the Governor of Wisconsin.

Foolish, stupid, and wrong.

While that particular ruling benefits BagManJim Doyle at this time, (as K Carpenter points out), what is to prevent this massive money-machine from influencing a Republican in the future?

A few million here, a few million there--pretty soon it adds up to real money.

Isn't this what you folks want the United States Supreme Court to do with Roe v. Wade -- overturn precedent or reverse itself?

Do you have an ounce of consistency in your head?

Anony--you missed the point of the post.

Having said that, WRONG decisions SHOULD be overturned. Unfortunately, the WI Supremes' recent decision on gaming control was WRONG.
