Via The Political Environment comes this gem. A reader dropped this off. She said she found it on the back of a George Webb’s paper place mat, and I spent the morning getting the hand writing verified by a palm reader south of town and at two area Walgreen’s pharmacies, so here’s the transcription, verbatim, with his [...]
According to according to unofficial results reported to the state Government Accountability Board on Thursday, Democrat Pat Bomhack was declared the winner of the Democratic primary recount over Ernie Wittwer in the 17th Senate district. Wittwer was originally declared the winner of the primary by a narrow 7 vote margin, and a recount of the [...]
It used to be that if you wanted to do voter registration in Wisconsin you could get trained by the Government Accountability Board as a Special Registration Deputy(SRD), be assigned an SRD number, and then travel anywhere in Wisconsin to register voters. Not anymore.
The Voter Photo ID law stripped the GAB of any authority [...]
This is an exellent read…thanks to commenter Duane12 for sending me the link. “The gender is interesting,” said Happ, who got 52 percent of the vote in a primary against two men. “I think women are saying, ‘Listen, we want more representation in our elected officials.’ Because we are woefully underrepresented.”
Win or lose, having [...]
I guess now we know why Gov. Scott Walker was so nervous about the roughly $25 million casino payment the Potawatomi Tribe withheld this week. State tax collections fell short of expectations by $281 million last year, providing potential difficulties in the future for the state budget and immediate fodder for this fall’s tight governor’s [...]
As I’ve mentioned here before, a number of years ago some anonymous hater, whose soul must be a pit of dark matter as dense as a collapsed star, signed me up for weekly emails from the Wisconsin Club for Growth. Most of the time, I just ignore them, as their constant stream of “global warming [...]

Official results showed Ernie Wittwer leading Pat Bomhack by just seven votes out of more than 7,600 cast, prompting Bomhack to request a recount, which began [...]
Before my doctor-imposed break from blogging begins, I wanted to post a few things that caught my eye.
First up is an interview WisconsinEye did with Democrat Chris Miller, who’s vying to unseat incumbent Republican Rep. Ed Brooks in the 50th Assembly district. Chris is a great candidate well worth supporting, but watch for yourselves.
On Tuesday it was reported the Forest County Potawatomi tribe, the operators of a casino/hotel in Milwaukee, are withholding their $25 million casino fee to the state as part of an ongoing brouhaha over the Menominee tribe’s proposed off-reservation casino/hotel in Kenosha. Gov. Walker was supposed to make a decision on whether to approve or [...]
How desperate have the folks at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s PolitiFact gotten? So desperate they’ve taken to determining the accuracy of statements Mary Burke made about her preferred beer. During a “getting to know you” Q&A with ABC News, Democrat Mary Burke fielded a question that hardly will change the course of Wisconsin’s future.
