Indiana Democrats Flee State to Escape Vote on Union Busting Bill

Shutting down repressive Republican governments by leaving town? Why didn't someone think of this before?

The Indiana union-busting bill is said to be even worse than the one in Wisconsin.

Seats on one side of the Indiana House were nearly empty today as House Democrats departed the the state rather than vote on anti-union legislation. A source tells The Indianapolis Star that Democrats are headed to Illinois, though it was possible some also might go to Kentucky. They need to go to a state with a Democratic governor to avoid being taken into police custody and returned to Indiana.
