Wisconsin Banana Republic: Gov. Walker Defies Court Order

The drama in Wisconsin just got a lot more intense. Once again, Governor Walker does whatever he damn well pleases.

Gov. Scott Walker's administration no longer is collecting dues on behalf of state unions and, as of Sunday, is charging employees more for their pensions and health care, even though nonpartisan legislative attorneys say the changes are not yet law.

First the union-busting Scott Walker defies the will of the people, now Scott Walker defies the Court:

As of yesterday, Walker began enforcing a law that has been blocked by a state court's restraining order. . So, as of today, what's the law in Wisconsin?
