Gary Sherman….Gary Sherman….Gary Sherman. I should know that name.
Now I remember Gary Sherman was the critical vote needed desperately by Governor Doyle to preserve open carry in Wisconsin five years ago.
He is the Assembly Representative who voted for SB214 and then switched his vote against it to sustain the Governor’s veto of SB214. This legislation was the concealed carry law that passed the legislature with a bi-partisan two thirds super majority. By convincing Representative Sherman to switch his vote, the Governor was able to guarantee that his veto of SB214 would be sustained by just one critical vote, Representative Sherman’s vote.
Why would Representative Sherman switch his vote to kill legislation he has claimed to staunchly support you ask?
No one really knows for sure except for the Governor and Representative Sherman. However the Governor has just appointed Representative Sherman to the Wisconsin District IV Court of Appeals.
It could be just a coincidence, you be the judge.
