From my email inbox comes the latest newsletter from Democratic State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. “Edgar: All right, everybody; back to the scene of the crime.
“Ella: New clues?
“Carol: What clues?
“Bob: What’s the next clue?
“Carol: I don’t have a clue.
“Norman: (At the window box, dramatically.) Guys, the body’s gone!”
So goes the […]
But remember, Gov. Walker’s fiscally responsible! To keep the state doing what it does now through mid-2017, Gov. Scott Walker and lawmakers have to come up with $928 million in spending cuts or tax increases, according to estimates released Friday by the Legislature’s budget office.
The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau found that to continue current […]
In a move that seems to be all about his 2016 presidential aspirations and nothing else, Republican Gov. Scott Walker announced yesterday he will reject the Menominee tribe’s proposed Hard Rock Casino in Kenosha. Walker, who is exploring a presidential campaign, put the kibosh on the casino one day before he heads to Iowa, an […]

Every state takes a higher percentage of income in local […]
Well this is awkward.
Watch as Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas flubs through his response to the State of the Union address, which was one of five Republican responses to President Obama’s speech.
Just as was the case with Sen. Joni Ernst, Sen. Cruz has proven he’s not quite ready for prime time.
This is an absolute travesty. Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s office received an inspection report last summer detailing high amounts of opiates prescribed at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Tomah, but there is no indication her office took action on the findings until last week, when she called for an investigation after a news report revealed […]
Of course Assembly Republicans would try to raise money from lobbyists while the Assembly is in session, in violation of the Assembly’s own rules.
A fundraiser for Wisconsin Assembly Republicans scheduled for Wednesday evening was canceled Wednesday afternoon after Democrats noted the event violated the lawmaking body’s rules.
“Due to an unfortunate scheduling oversight tonight’s […]
Apparently conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate James Daley, who currently serves as a Rock County Circuit Court Judge, doesn’t believe in the importance of checks and balances between the different branches of our state government.
