Wisconsin Assembly Dems Set Up Office Outside, Protesting Capitol Restrictions

Access to the state Capitol building in Wisconsin has now been heavily restricted, so some Democrats are providing a solution to members of the public who can’t get to assembly members’ offices: They’re bringing their offices to them.

As WisPolitics reports, five Assembly Democrats — Minority Leader Peter Barca, Cory Mason, Josh Zepnick, Nick Milroy and Fred Clark — took desks outside, in order to meet with constituents and members of the public in below-freezing temperatures.

“Obviously there was a court order to open this building and anybody with a brain would tell you they’re defying the court order,” Barca told WisPolitics.
