Occasionally Greta Van Susteren earns her keep, at least as it pertains to legal issues. She interviewed Wisconsin GOP Leader Scott Fitzgerald and grilled him on why he's persisting with a court action when he could simply give 24-hour notice and call a vote.
I have long thought the reason for the cramdown of the vote on this wasn't because of Democrats, but because of Republicans. I think their unity was fracturing and with each passing day, public pressure and disapproval was growing to the point where at least three Republican Senators were in danger of defection.
Fitzgerald seems to think so too. After being pressed by Greta, who quite reasonably points out that all he'd have to do is comply with the 24-hour notice requirements to get his law passed and published even as the old one "meanders in the courts", he says this:
Greta, you know that the legislature is always very tentative, and you may have the votes on one day and then you don't on the next.
Greta Van Susteren takes Scott Fitzgerald through his legal options with respect to the stay on Wisconsin's anti-union law, and Fitzgerald finally admits he can't be sure the votes would be there if another vote were taken.
