Many Wisconsin Progressives are extremely unhappy with the candidacy of Trek Executive, Mary Burke. Nary a day goes by without Facebook posts about Burke’s lack of a progressive outlook and Vinehout’s expected announcement.
Most recently a member of the Solidarity Sing-A-Long put up a post stating that “Burke is among the one percent” and “she [...]
Scott Walker had a bad week. Or course he is too self-absorbed to admit or possibly even acknowledge that things are not looking very good for the state of Wisconsin.
The latest jobs numbers are out from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, and they look pretty good…for the Democratic candidate for Governor. From June [...]
The latest Marquette Poll shows that Ron Johnson’s approval rating is at a meager 28%. Johnson rode into office on a wave of anti-incumbent, anti-progress Tea Party voters in 2010. He defeated three-term Senator and progressive icon Russ Feingold in a stunning upset. Although Johnson was leading in the polls, many progressives and media figures [...]
The recent polling out of Marquette University should give hope to those who want to oust Scott Walker in 2014. The polling is about two weeks old and shows that the race is a statistical tie. Mary Burke, the only declared candidate, polls at 45% compared to Walker’s 47%.

We’re not [...]
This should surprise absolutely no one. Gov. Scott Walker’s administration used phantom job transfers this year to give double-digit pay raises to two employees and a smaller raise to a third, quickly switching them from one post to as many as three others and then back to their original jobs.
The biggest pay increase — [...]
Must be rough… Gov. Scott Walker’s administration is nearly doubling the pay of the former lawmaker who engineered a $500,000 grant to his and Walker’s political friends that could have cost the state $28 million in federal aid.
The Public Service Commission finalized the hiring Friday of former Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder (R-Abbotsford) at [...]
Yeah, this picture just about sums up Gov. Scott Walker’s more than cozy connection to many of the key players in United Sportsmen, the not actually a nonprofit group that received a $500,000 grant in Walker’s budget, only to have Walker veto that grant when the public became aware of the group’s strong ties to [...]
