Lautenschlager files brief, which to put it briefly, sucks

by Jeremy Hooper

   Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager is urging a judge to toss a lawsuit that seeks domestic partner benefits for state employees. In a brief filed last week, Lautenschlager argues that denying health benefits to domestic partners does not violate the state constitution's equal-rights protection clause, and is therefore acceptable practice.

   Upon hearing the news, the state constitution's oh-so dramatic equal-rights protection clause threw itself off a cliff, as its life's work to protect all of Wisconsin's citizens equally had proven in vain. It was 157, and is survived by an article and two teenaged ratifications.
