Jeff Wood Survives Close Vote

MNS – [Madison, Wisc…] The State Assembly voted to censure Representative Jeff Wood Wednesday morning after amending a resolution that would have expelled him.  The Chippewa lawmaker begins a 45 day jail sentence on Monday and faces additional legal proceedings stemming from two other incidents of driving while impaired.

Republicans say the vote on Wednesday was a case of lawmakers looking after their own instead of the state. Further, they contend that Democrats saved Wood because they still need his vote on Thursday for expected close roll calls on bills dealing with education reform, global warming and vote fraud.
