As promised, here’s some video from some of the folks who spoke at today’s GOTV rally at Pere Marquette Park in Milwaukee. The crowd was big (filled up the park) and lively, and while my video is a little shaky, the audio is great.
First up, here’s Democratic State Sen. Jon Erpenbach, one of the [...]
Here’s a quote from Democratic State Sen. Jon Erpenbach, responding to an email sent out by the campaign of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Falk characterizing the campaigns of her opponents as being full of political insiders: “I don’t necessarily consider myself a political insider simply because I spend more time outside talking to real people [...]
There are still many people who are upset that Kathleen Falk has received the endorsements of WEAC / Emily's List and AFSCME / John "Sly "Sylvester , the full membership of IBEW and (most importantly) Yours truly!
Lets look at a few objections:
Q. I want Russ Feingold to run. A. So do I, [...]
First, State Senator Jon Erpenbach tried to clarify the secrecy arrangement between Michael Best & Friedrich and the Senate Republicans. Then Michael Best & Friedrich passed the buck. Now Senator Erpenbach is not willing to take “don’t bother us” for an answer:

“We cannot afford to sit back,” said Mary Bell, president of [...]
The story came out yesterday that The republicans were unanimous in swearing their secrecy, to Michael, Best & Freidrich while they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to make sure they had as many republican friendly districts as possible.
The problem with that(ok there are numerous problems, but one of the [...]
“What you did, and what you have been doing over the past 60 days, by going out in all sorts of weather at all sorts of times, day and night, in Waukesha County, says a lot about your dedication,” Senator Erpenbach told the crowd on Friday night at the Waukesha Walker Recall Office. We were [...]
Because It is NOT supposed to! As I pointed out recently, the fact that the Walker administration says they are “reforming” education, is a myth!
In reality, while a teacher’s role in the classroom is incredibly important, it pales in comparison to other external factors a child confronts on a daily basis(socio-economic background, parents [...]
