From the headline on Yahoo newshttp://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110218/ap_on_bi_ge/us_wisconsin...The Wisconsin State Patrol was dispatched Friday to find a Democratic state senator who fled the Capitol to delay the near-certain passage of a bill to end a half-century of collective bargaining rights for public workers, a measure that's attracted thousands of protesters for four days.****Senate rules and the state constitution say absent members can be compelled to appear, but it does not say how."We left the state so we were out of the reach of the Wisconsin state patrol, which has the authority to round us up and bring us back to the legislature," state Sen. Mark Miller told ABC's "Good Morning America" from an undisclosed location Friday.Sen. Tim Cullen said he and other Democrats planned to stage their boycott until Saturday to give the public more time to speak out against the bill. Are they going to force the Democrats to appear while restrained like Hannibal Lecter?
