I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Treason. SECTION 10. Treason against the state shall consist
only in levying war against the same, or in adhering to its
enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted
of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the
same overt act, or on confession in open court.
Maintenance of free government. SECTION 22. The
blessings of a free government can only be maintained by a firm
adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality and virtue,
and by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.
Qualifications of legislators. SECTION 6. No person shall
be eligible to the legislature who shall not have resided one year
within the state, and be a qualified elector in the district which
he may be chosen to represent.
A candidate for election to Congress need not be a resident of the district at the
time he or she files nomination papers and executes the declaration of intent to
accept the office if elected. A candidate for congress must be an inhabitant of the
state at the time of election. 61 Atty. Gen. 155.
Organization of legislature; quorum; compulsory
attendance. SECTION 7. Each house shall be the judge of the
elections, returns and qualifications of its own members; and a
majority of each shall constitute a quorum to do business, but a
smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and may compel
the attendance of absent members in such manner and under
such penalties as each house may provide.
Rules; contempts; expulsion. SECTION 8. Each house
may determine the rules of its own proceedings, punish for contempt
and disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence of two-
thirds of all the members elected, expel a member; but no member
shall be expelled a second time for the same cause.
Courts have no jurisdiction to review legislative rules of proceeding, which are
those rules having “to do with the process the legislature uses to propose or pass
legislation or how it determines the qualifications of its members.” Milwaukee
Journal Sentinel v. DOA, 2009 WI 79, 319
The legislature cannot sentence a person to confinement for contempt without
