Leah Vukmir has to follow same rules everyone else does

This is gratifying, sorta:

In September, Vukmir filed a motion in Dane County Circuit Court arguing she was immune from any lawsuit during a two-year legislative session — a claim that, if successful, could have allowed lawmakers to dodge litigation during their entire legislative careers.


Brendan Fischer, legal counsel for the center that sued Vukmir, said the state will pay $12,500 in legal fees and $2,500 in damages....

Fischer said the center made two requests for documents from Vukmir about a May 2013 ALEC conference in Oklahoma City. Vukmir gave no documents in response to one request and a limited number to the other, he said.

The two sides agreed to have Vukmir's personal email searched by an independent party in the presence of a staffer from the center. The independent party was able to find a "significant number" of documents using basic search terms such as "ALEC," Fischer said.


"I regret the technical issues we had fulfilling this request, but I have now fulfilled the request and turned over all records. Additionally, I have worked to identify the problems we encountered through this process and have taken action to ensure that this will not be an issue in the future," Vukmir said in a statement.


Yeah right, Leah.

How many months did she get out of that?
