Tough Election Choices But Sticking With My Beliefs

More Crisis Actors Prop Up Moscow Ron Johnson

These ads have replaced Kevin of Clinton in the third party derby to prop up Moscow Ron’s failing campaign. Now we have the just so huggable Burdie and Steve in Wauwatosa. But I bet these are just crisis actors and they have no idea who Ron Johnson is…and that they…

Bob Donovan’s Repeat Attempt To Smear Cavalier Johnson.

We recently discussed Milwaukee Mayoral Candidate Bob Donovan’s attempt to smear Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson on social media…a social media thread that his campaign apparently deleted after thinking about it a bit more. But apparently the former alderman isn’t one to easily give up on a favorite line of disinformation….

And Robin Vos Could Have Had A Retired Judge Who Knows How Elections Work!
