  • What Is Wisconsin’s Political Mafia Trying to Hide about Paul Ryan…?

    A couple of days ago, we shared with you that the Republican Party of Wisconsin (RPW) shut us out of a booth at their annual convention next month. When one of our team members initially called RPW on April 20th, he spoke to a guy named Matt, who enthusiastically quoted prices for the booth—$300 for one day, $400 for the weekend, with two vendor credentials included. Matt said it should be no problem to get us set up. He said he’d have someone call us and that we should have things set by the end of the day. A return...

    A Waukesha County judge has entered not guilty pleas on behalf of two teenagers charged in the Slender Man stabbing case. Anissa Weier, 13, and Morgan Geyser, 13, appeared in court Friday morning for an arraignment hearing. Weier and Geyser are charged as adults in the 2014 stabbing attack on a classmate at a sleepover party. The girls said they were trying to please a fictional horror character called

    isconsin Gov. Scott Walker announced Monday morning on Twitter that he is running for the Republican nomination for president, saying, “I’m in. I’m running for president because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them.” Walker will give a speech kicking off his campaign Monday evening in Waukesha, Wis., becoming one of seven current or former Republican governors to enter the 2016 race — and the only one to survive a recall election in his own state.

    He drives a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He brags about wearing a sweater he bought for $1 at Kohl’s department store. He touts his humble upbringing as a small-town minister’s son, and how he proposed to his wife over ribs at a local barbecue joint. Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, has criss-crossed the country for months regaling crowds with his everyman, “regular Joe” shtick. On Monday, as he becomes the 15th Republican to enter the race for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, his backers are hoping he can convince voters not only that he is the most authentic candidate, but one...

    It is appropriate Scott Walker will be making his formal presidential candidacy announcement in Waukesha. While Walker may be a Wauwatosa resident and was Milwaukee County executive before being elected governor, his political base – and the biggest reason he is a viable presidential contender – is the Milwaukee suburbs. Waukesha is the unofficial capital of the suburbs and the heart of Walker Country. In all three of Walker’s winning elections for governor, he received staggering margins in the crescent moon region that wraps around Milwaukee County. Walker drew more than 70 percent of the vote in Washington, Waukesha, Ozaukee...

    Leading into a key hearing in her case Tuesday, one of two Waukesha girls charged in the Slender Man stabbing case has asked a judge to declare the law that required her to be charged as an adult unconstitutional and dismiss the case. Attorneys for 13-year-old Anissa Weier filed a motion last week challenging the law as it applies to her, saying it violates the Eighth Amendment's ban on cruel and unusual punishment, and that keeping her from the juvenile court system violates her rights to equal protection and due process. Weier and Morgan Geyser, 12, are charged as adults...

    In a speech in Wisconsin on Thursday, President Barack Obama insulted perhaps the most fervent members of his political base: art history majors. The politically clumsy moment occurred during the president’s remarks at General Electric’s Waukesha Gas Engines facility. After extolling his own economic policies at some length, Obama observed that “manufacturing jobs typically pay well” in the United States. “We want to encourage more of them,” he said. Then, he began to speak — apparently extemporaneously — about the benefits of working in America’s ever-diminishing manufacturing sector.

    Milwaukee Just four days out from the Wisconsin's historic gubernatorial recall election, former president Bill Clinton and Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett could only draw a small crowd to a rally Friday on Barrett's home turf. As the Associated Press notes, the crowd numbered only in the "hundreds," a sign of the enthusiasm gap between Democrats and Republicans that has appeared in some polls. Overcast weather and the short notice of the event (it was announced just yesterday) may have depressed turnout. Clinton said that although he doesn't normally support recall elections, "sometimes it is the only way to avoid a...

    Madison -- The Court of Appeals declined to take up a Dane County case Wednesday that blocked the state's new law requiring people to show photo ID at the polls. The latest order is a further setback for those who support the voter ID law, and is another sign the law almost surely will remain halted for the May 8 primaries and June 5 recall elections. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan temporarily enjoined the voter ID law last month, saying the Milwaukee branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and immigrant rights group Voces de...

    Waukesha - Ten 10-foot tall guitars, modeled after the Les Paul Gibson, arrived on a flatbed trailer - guarded by a mammoth fiberglass bulldog - Tuesday morning, a sure sign that the GuitarTown Project is for real. The Gibson Foundation and Mayor Jeff Scrima announced earlier this month that Waukesha had been selected for the project, following on the heels of cities such as Los Angeles, Nashville and London. In other GuitarTown Project cities, the guitars typically were decorated by artists, often signed by celebrities and auctioned off to raise money for charity. Later Tuesday, a Waukesha steering committee planned...

    Conspiracy theorists are in full force with a Democratic congresswoman even asking the United States Attorney General to investigate the Waukesha County election returns that gave the Supreme Court race to David Prosser, but they might want to call up Arianna Huffington first. That’s because Patch, a new media site in Brookfield that Huffington oversees, reported the Brookfield election returns to the public… on election night. And they were the same returns the city is reporting now that Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus has finally added Brookfield into the countywide returns. That means there’s no big conspiracy – Nickolaus just...

    The 80-year-old Dem member of the Waukesha County Board of Canvass who said the "numbers jibed" last week after the clerk announced a 14,000-vote error raised concerns today about the process. Ramona Kitzinger was widely quoted following a Thursday news conference in which Clerk Kathy Nickolaus blamed human error for failing to include votes from Brookfield in the tally she sent to the media on Election Day. Once those votes were added into the statewide totals, it swung the election dramatically to Justice David Prosser by some 7,000 votes. A statement from Kitzinger was posted on the Waukesha County Dem...

    I heard Ramona Kitzinger, the Democratic observer at the Waukesha County canvass, say on Friday that the numbers announced by county clerk Kathy Nickolaus at the end of the canvass “jibed.” Now, by all appearances, she’s lawyered-up, and released a statement largely recanting her Friday comments and sowing doubt about what Nickolaus may or may not have done with the 15,000 missing votes. The whole thing is worth a read, but this is my favorite part: “. . . with the enormous amount of attention this has received over the weekend, many people are offering my statements at the press...

Tammy Baldwin has sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking for a federal investigation into the questionable handling of vote records in Waukesha County. "Following this week’s election for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, numerous constituents have contacted me expressing serious doubt that this election was a free and fair one," Baldwin said in the letter. "They fear, as I do, that political interests are manipulating the results." A message left by The Associated Press at Holder's office Saturday wasn't immediately returned.

Alicia Thorson of Waukesha says she thinks the polls are fixed. The mother of 4 says she doesn't trust what she called the "liberal media." Thorson's 3-year-old and 7-year-old daughters were dressed like Palin outside the sports complex where McCain was to hold a noon town hall meeting.

    Board limits tree-cutting along lakes But some say rules unfair to private landowners By SCOTT WILLIAMS Posted: Nov. 23, 2004 Waukesha - A move to protect trees along Waukesha County lakefronts stirred a philosophical debate among county supervisors Tuesday on the role of government in safeguarding the environment. The County Board approved regulations restricting a property owner's ability to remove trees within 35 feet of a lake. Many supervisors opposed the measure, arguing that property owners should not be accountable to government when deciding whether to remove trees on their own land. "This, to me, is over-regulation," Supervisor Karl Nilson...

    WAUKESHA, Wis. - President Bush (news - web sites) woke up in downtown Milwaukee Wednesday, but his campaign bus promptly headed for the suburbs and even farther out — Republican territory where aides believe his re-election hopes can flourish this year. Members of the Bush team say the rapidly growing suburbs and far-flung "exurbs" ringing cities such as Milwaukee and Green Bay, with their white, affluent, church-going populations, can counter the heavy Democratic turnout in urban areas and tip the balance in his favor. "If you're somebody who moved into Fond du Lac or West Bend in the last year...

    Waukesha - President Bush told more than 5,000 cheering supporters Wednesday in the heavily Republican suburbs of Milwaukee that his conservative values in building up the nation's defenses and instituting tax cuts are solutions to America's problems and that Democrat John Kerry should not be allowed to derail them. Bush said his approaches to national security and the economy are working so well that Kerry is trying to embrace conservatism. "He said he was the candidate of conservative values," Bush said of Kerry's comments on a recent trip to the Midwest. Defending his decision to invade Iraq, Bush said, "Although...
