Did a pro-energy lobbying group commit fraud to drum up artificial support for WE Energies/MGE rate increase?

A few minutes ago I wrote about the rate increase approved by Gov. Scott Walker’s Public Service Commission, a rate increase that would benefit WE Energies, which last year enjoyed record profits of $577 million at the expense of ratepayers (you & I).

In a related story, Mike Ivey of the CapTimes is reporting that […]

John Doe target looks to stall continued investigation

Despite the irrefutable fact that the John Doe investigation into Scott Walker and his aides has yielded a number of felony and misdemeanor convictions, conservative Eric O’Keefe of the Wisconsin Club for Growth is trying everything he can to keep the investigation from continuing.

Eric O’Keefe is throwing what amounts to another handful of nails […]

Source for conservative smear piece against DA Chisholm & wife is former cop who made threats against Chisholm

On Wednesday I reported on the conservative smear piece alleging Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s use of the John Doe investigation process to investigate (and successfully prosecute) a number of aides and close associates to then-County Executive Scott Walker was motivated by his wife’s feelings about Act 10.

The piece is pure trash, and […]

Conservative publishes smear piece attacking DA John Chisholm’s wife

This is absolutely disgusting, and it shows the lengths some conservatives will go to in order to discredit Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm because he dared investigate (and successfully prosecute) misconduct in public office by employees of then-County Executive Scott Walker.

John Chisholm’s epic smackdown of Sheriff David Clarke: “Get off your high horse, Sheriff, and get your office back in the fight”

On May 30, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke wrote a letter (preceded, of course, by a press release) to Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm and Milwaukee County Circuit Court Chief Judge Jeffrey Kremers calling for the District Attorney’s office and all branches of Milwaukee County Circuit Court to suspend the use of deferred prosecutions, […]

John Doe Didn’t Exonerate Scott Walker

Since the announcement by retired Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim that the John Doe investigation around members of Governor Scott Walker’s former County Executive staff was closed, we saw exaggerated weeping and gnashing of teeth on the left and gloating on right…well nothing in the statement from Judge Nettesheim would indicate that either party is […]

“Ignore the Public Comments”

If you take away anything from this next story, as egregious as it is, remember that line. That should be the mantel that the democrats use to prop up their republican counterparts in the upcoming election.

Now on to the story: JSonline delved into more detail regarding the republicans redistricting process. and the one word […]

Earlier today, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced felony charges have been filed against three individuals – including a former top aide to Gov. Scott Walker – as part of the ongoing John Doe investigation into Walker staffers.

Republicans to take up “Castle Doctrine” as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist

Can someone explain to me how implementing the “Castle Doctrine” in Wisconsin will create jobs? Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said Wisconsin, like most states, doesn’t need a castle doctrine, because current law, refined over the last half century, provides more than adequate protection for anyone legitimately acting in self-defense.

“The statute in place […]


November 1st, starts a new chapter in Wisconsin’s History as the new concealed carry law goes into effect. While some think this is a simple matter of the second amendment – except that is not true.
