'Wisconsin Senate OKs arrest of absent Dems for contempt:

The Wisconsin Senate has passed a resolution calling for police to take 14 Democrats into custody for contempt after they fled to Illinois to avoid voting on a union rights bill, the Associated Press reports.

The resolution says the absent Democrats are determined to be guilty of contempt and disorderly content.

It gives the sergeant at arms the authority to take any and all steps, with or without force and assistance from police, to bring the senators back, the AP says.'
