Back in June, I highlighted the curious case of Asher Heimermann, and at the time I wondered whether Heimermann was a passionate (thought misguided) young political activist or a political scam artist.
As I wrote at the time, shortly after getting just 38 votes in the Sheboygan mayoral recall primary, Heimermann quickly pivoted into a [...]
From my email inbox comes this: SHEBOYGAN – Former Democratic State Assembly candidate Asher Heimermann is calling upon Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate to resign Wednesday.
“We intend to bring pressure to force out Mike Tate for his leadership and structural failures at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin,” Heimermann said. “Due to his [...]
