Today Governor Tony Evers celebrated his 68th birthday sitting in the Senate chamber and watching his nominee for DATCP Secretary go down in flames. The Senate spent much of the day debating rules and jockeying for power over what testimony would be allowed in the discussion about Secretary-Elect Pfaff.

It has often been said that watching laws being made is like watching sausage being made - you don't want to see the details. Here is an example of our Legislature making sausage you just do not want to eat. The Senate is debating the confirmation of DATCP Secretary Pfaff. 

- Update - Pfaff was not confirmed. 14 Ayes, 19 Nos, strictly along party lines. More later. The Senate has re-convened and is now considering other business.
