1. Last Friday afternoon(surprise) the republicans introduced their radical redistricting plan. While it is definitely a power grab and more of a wish list than a serious redistricting map(you can read more about it here, or here, or here! While this story of Republicans disregard for democracy is just getting started, the map released on Friday as already cost the taxpayers $300,000 and counting.
2. Tomorrow starts recall season, and the republican party has decided to run fake democrats in all races, forcing primaries to give the temporary republican majority more of a chance to run redistricting through with minimal discussion. The costs to the taxpayers of Wisconsin will be up to $500,000.
For those of you scoring at home, the Wisconsin “fiscal conservative” power grab is $800,000 right now and counting!
I would think it would be cheaper to just run a race on the issues.
