Do you think politicians should be allowed to buy elections? If you answered “no,” you might want to take a look at a new report just released by One Wisconsin Now and United Wisconsin which details how Scott Walker paid for his recall election using loophole loot. And if you’d like to help keep politicians, [...]
Despite the shouting and accusations from the Republican legislators about alleged voter fraud in Racine during the June 5th Senatorial recall…where Senator-elect John Lehman defeated Senator Van Wanggaard…there was NO VOTER FRAUD!
From the august Racine Journal Times:
County investigators have found no evidence of criminal activity after looking into claims of alleged voter fraud [...]
If it wasn’t apparent that The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has sold out their editorial and newsroom integrity to the right wing narrative, today’s paper ices the cake. Over the past month or so, MJS gave significant op ed space to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and State Senator Van Wanggaard to spout off about voter fraud [...]
To be honest, I’m surprised Van Wanggaard didn’t try “judge shopping” somewhere like Waukesha County for a friendly court… Republican state Sen. Van Wanggaard said Tuesday he would not sue to try to overturn his loss in the June 5 recall – an announcement that means control of the Senate will be handed over to [...]
…and things just didn’t break in favor of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
No doubt there will be no shortage of “Monday morning quarterbacking” of today’s results in the gubernatorial recall election, but I just wanted to say that I’m damn proud of how hard so many of my fellow Wisconsinites fought for what so many [...]
And it goes without saying…but I am saying it anyway!
Tom Barrett for Governor
Mahlon Mitchell for Lieutenant Governor
State Senate District 13: Lori Compas
State Senate District 21: John Lehman
State Senate District 23: Kristen Dexter
State Senate District 29: Donna Seidel
Yeah, Lori Compas is a rock star… But before all that, eighteen months ago, Compas, 41, admits she was politically oblivious working mom who didn’t know her own state senator’s name. Today? She’s raised $200,000 for her campaign to oust that same state senator. Her commercials run on local TV. And her red “Lori Compas [...]
The publisher of The Shepherd Express has some thoughts on Healing Our State…and he comes to the conclusion that it requires the election of Mayor Tom Barrett as governor in the recall this Tuesday June 5th!
It was when I was elected to the Assembly 25 years ago that I met Tom Barrett. We both [...]
Sometimes I am not so sure there isn’t a weekend editor or two at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel who enjoys a bit of irony and edits the news to grand effect!
And the front page of the Saturday June 2nd edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel LOCAL section is the epitome of such irony.
Found on a conservative blog as I surfed the internet: “Officials are supposed to be recalled for malfeasance in office, not mere political temper tantrums”
If said conservative had actually read the Wisconsin constitution, he’d know that Article XIII, Section 12 states, “The qualified electors of the state, of any congressional, judicial or legislative district [...]
