UPDATE: This post has been updated to include information Peter Rickman from We Are Milwaukee addressing the points raised in the original blog entry.

Take a good long look at this mailer sent out on behalf of Democratic Assembly candidate Marina Dimitrijevic, one of four Democrats running to replace Jon Richards in the 19th Assembly [...]

First lady Tonette Walker to attend fundraiser with anti-gay bigot Phil Richardson

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you no doubt remember the horribly bigoted and hateful remarks made by “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson, who compared homosexuality to bestiality when he said, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and [...]

When Will The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Drop Rick Esenberg’s Blog?

There’s been some conversation on Facebook about Christian Schneider’s op ed pieces in MJS. Liberal posters have accused him of being a hack and a direct mouthpiece of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. MJS editor Ernst-Ulrich Franzen stepped up to defend him as a paid columnist. All well and good…well not really good…but you know [...]

Justin Moralez endorsed by ethically challenged former U.S. Treasurer

Justin Moralez can’t have it both ways

Let me set the stage for you all.

Justin Moralez on anti-public employee Act 10: “there is a residual effect on families”

Last week I noted Republican State Assembly candidate Justin Moralez had not answered (after a week) a question I asked regarding his stance on Act 10, Gov. Scott Walker’s notorious anti-public employee legislation, and shortly after I posted about the fact that Moralez had not answered my question, he sent me this response via Facebook [...]

The Scott Walker Investigation WAS Partisan: Republicans Won and the Milwaukee D.A. Got Neutered

In early 2012, nominally-Democratic Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm filed bribery charges against Johnny Thomas, a Milwaukee County supervisor, rising star and shoo-in candidate for city comptroller.

The evidence was flimsy but Chisholm took Thomas to trial. Later that year, Thomas quickly was acquitted (but his reputation was damaged and career was derailed).

Previous to [...]

Assembly Republicans to attempt to censure Rep. Sinicki?

On the heels of the manufactured outrage from so many on the right regarding Democratic State Rep. Chris Sinicki’s characterization of Gov. Scott Walker’s State of the State address as “full of shit,” it’s been widely rumored Rep. Sinicki’s seat would become a target for Republican. Last week Rep. Sinicki got her first Republican opponent, [...]

Singing with the Socialists

My wife is a nurse in a small rural hospital up here in northern Wisconsin. By her account most of her co-workers could be reasonably characterized as rednecked conservatives.

So she came home chuckling mightily the other night telling me that the high price of propane during this extended polar freeze had prompted a heated [...]

Jon Richards: The Blogging Blue Interview

Jon Richards

I recently had an opportunity to speak with State Rep. Jon Richards, one of two Democrats vying to become Wisconsin’s next Attorney General.

Our discussion of Richards’ candidacy began with the customary, “Why did you decide to run for Attorney General?” question. Richards answered that he decided to run for Attorney General because he believes, [...]
