Last week I posted a blog about an email that is making the rounds that was insanely inaccurate in its description of Common Core educational standards. And earlier this week I posted a link and brief quiz from JSOnline that clarified what Common Core is all about.
Well today, the Wisconsin State Senate began hearings [...]
From my inbox, the first TV ad for Mary Burke’s gubernatorial campaign:
Scott Walker’s D.C.-based Republican Governors Association is spending more than $1 million attacking Mary with false, negative attacks in order to prop up their favorite out-of-touch governor.
We want you to have the real facts about Mary.
Well this is something. Court documents have previously showed Walker’s aides set up a secret wireless router in the county executive’s office and traded emails that mixed county and campaign business on Gmail and Yahoo accounts.
I can report that Walker knew about this system as far back as 2002. How do I know? I [...]
So we keep hearing about the secret computer network in the county executive’s office while Governor Walker was hunkered down there. And we keep hearing about how the staff was using personal laptop computers to access personal email accounts to avoid or evade open records laws. Well…all those things used electricity that I paid for…where [...]
This just about sums how Gov. Scott Walker should be defined.

As reported by Bruce Murphy of Urban Milwaukee, a source has indicated an internet/email system was in place in Gov. Walker’s gubernatorial offices to allow his staff to do “off the books” campaign work on government time.

Well this is good news… John Schulze, the chief legal counsel for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation since last spring, is no longer with the department, an agency spokesperson has confirmed. Schulze’s departure follows the release last week of an offensive email he sent in 2010 to a secret email system in Gov. Scott Walker’s [...]
Because Gov. Scott Walker is such a believable guy… Gov. Scott Walker said in an interview Monday that there is no private email system in the governor’s office similar to the one that existed in his office when he was Milwaukee County executive.
He also said that as governor he has complied with laws that [...]
Me,like many of you were horrified and angry at the revelations in the John Doe emails last week regarding BHD (for those of you outside Milwaukee,that’s short for “Behavioral Health Division” otherwise known as the the county mental health complex). You had top Walker aides who said “nobody cares about crazy people” etc and Walker [...]
In early 2012, nominally-Democratic Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm filed bribery charges against Johnny Thomas, a Milwaukee County supervisor, rising star and shoo-in candidate for city comptroller.
The evidence was flimsy but Chisholm took Thomas to trial. Later that year, Thomas quickly was acquitted (but his reputation was damaged and career was derailed).
