Wisconsin Republican state senators can't get their 14 Democratic counterparts to show up and vote on a union busting bill, so they're pushing through a new rule
that ends direct deposit paychecks for members.
If the senators on the lam want to get paid, they're going to have to show up and collect their checks from the Senate president -- a Republican -- in person on the Senate floor.
At least that would spare everyone the spectacle of state troopers arresting the senators, as GOP Gov. Scott Walker instructed the troopers last week. The 14 are reportedly hiding out in Illinois.
Update: Walker's strategy was revealed after a he was punk'd by a phone prank
