Dear Editor: The July 24 cover that said "Republicans may convene to override Gov. Tony Evers' budget veto" is worse than misleading. It's a lie. A more accurate title would have been "Republican state leaders blow hot air." They need two-thirds of the legislators in both the Assembly and Senate to override a veto, and they know they don't have the votes. But your article doesn't mention that until the second-to-last paragraph. News media should not take every statement by state GOP leaders seriously. This "threat" is pure political grandstanding and should be exposed as such.
