They were elected to represent the members of their district. I'm sure their constituents are just fine with them leaving the state so that peoples' rights don't get stripped, but this is just a smokescreen. I'm pretty sure they don't care what you think about them, unless you live in WI. This is brave; not many would stand up to this naked power grab.

The lawmakers in exile call this a defense of democracy. In truth, it's a step toward anarchy. If it catches on as a practice, it will officially end government by, of and for the people.

But it IS a job where, despite the outcome, participation is required.
These folks don't want the job? Find someone who does. With rampant unemployment, I'm sure there would be a few takers.
