Wisconsin Republican lawmakers have declined to sign a letter urging state Assembly’s leader to permit a paralyzed Democratic colleague to call into meetings when necessary.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Wednesday that all 36 Democratic members of the Assembly had signed a letter to Assembly Speaker Robin Vos asking for reasonable accommodation for Rep. Jimmy Anderson (D), who was paralyzed from the chest down after being hit by a drunken driver in 2010.
“It costs the state nothing and only asks for those in power to be considerate of Representative Anderson’s disability,” the letter states.
The letter also asks the Assembly’s leader to refrain from overnight sessions except in cases of a true emergency.
“On Aug. 8, Anderson sent an email to all Assembly lawmakers seeking their signature on the letter by Monday,” according to the paper. “An aide to Anderson said Wednesday no Republicans had signed the letter by the deadline or replied with questions.”

Stephen Miller praises Trump for having the ‘courage to stand up’ and put migrant children in jail
White House aide Stephen Miller insisted on Sunday that migrant children who have been imprisoned by the Trump administration have "psychological damage" that occurred before they were incarcerated.
In an interview on Fox News, correspondent John Roberts spoke to Miller about the detention policy that allows family separations.
Roberts observed that some migrants could be detained for "years" because of the backlog in the immigration system.
Miller disagreed, insisting that migrants could be processed in 40 to 60 days in most cases.
"These housing facilities are extremely carefully appointed to make sure the rights of migrants are protected," Miller said. "And everything you've heard in the media about this is totally 100% false."
‘Go back to China’: Racist white woman goes berserk after she allegedly hits ‘chinky’ Asian woman’s car
A racist white woman who was identified as Carla Waldman unleashed a rant on a Asian woman over parking conditions at a Canadian shopping center.
In a video that went viral over the weekend, Waldman can be seen complaining about Xu's parking even though Waldman's car has crossed over the line.
"We don't want you here because you can't drive," Waldman says in the video, sticking her tongue out at Xu.
"You crossed the line," Xu points out as the camera pans down to show the two cars touching.
"You don't know a damn thing!" Waldman shouts. "Go back to China where you belong. You f*cking asshole."
WATCH: Climate activists chant ‘failure of leadership’ at Tom Perez after DNC votes against climate debate
Activists walked out of the Democratic National Committee's summer meeting in San Francisco after the organization voted against allowing a climate change debate during the 2020 primary.
DNC Chair Tom Perez imposed strict rules on the debates, which prevented a climate change debate from occurring. Climate activists had forced a vote, hoping to overrule the party boss.
"The Democratic Party needs the energy, motivation, and organizing capacity of young people to defeat Trump in 2020. But Tom Perez keeps shooting the party in the foot by rejecting that energy and turning it away," the Sunrise Movement said in a statement.
