Rightists openly defy the Rule of Law

In the 1950s and 60s we had a few segregationist governors who at least feinted at defying court orders, mostly with regard to Federal law. But even in the shadowy realms of nutcase McCarthyism and blatantly racist southern governors in those days, I am not aware of a case where the extremist dominated legislature and governor openly defied an order of their own state's court of proper jurisdiction to implement a law found to have been passed illegally.

Yet this is precisely the situation today. Not in Alabama or Mississippi, but in Wisconsin. See this.
