Convention of States Project President Mark Meckler has testified in hundreds of state legislative hearings across the country. He's heard from volunteers and legislators on both sides of the Article V debate, and he's always appreciated honest, inquisitive questions -- no matter who is asking them.
But he came across totally unprecedented behavior from a state legislator in a recent committee hearing in Wisconsin.
The legislator badgered Convention of States witnesses with questions they were clearly not qualified to answer -- questions about Supreme Court precedent going back hundreds of years that no one but a constitutional scholar would be able to respond to.
Mark doesn't say it in the video below, but many of these questions were attempting to trick Convention of States volunteers into saying something that could be construed as racist or bigoted.
Abusing our volunteers is absolutely unacceptable, and Mark called out the legislator at the end of his testimony.
The forces tyranny and big government are increasing their attacks, but as Mark proved in the video above, we're up for the challenge.
