WTAQ has suspended radio personality Jerry Bader for two weeks, starting Monday, for a podcast he did saying an extra-marital affair forced Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton from the race for governor. Bader retracted the statement the next day when Lawton denied the story. Lawton, apparently dissatisfied with Bader’s punishment, lashed out at the entire city […]

A little Democratic birdie sang me this tune: Sheriff David Clarke (D-Milwaukee) for Governor. I’m told certain people are talking. I don’t think the Sheriff is completely on board with the idea yet. This mayoral takeover of MPS is already hurting Tom Barrett in the African American community, so why not? Print this entry

Erik Gunn e-mailed me last night for an on-the record statement regarding my blog post concerning WTAQ radio personality Jerry Bader’s now-retracted statements about Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton.  I responded and offered to answer additional questions by phone if he desired.  Gunn was apparently satisfied and quotes me in his article for Wispolitics.com.  Here is my […]

Team Walker, With No Democratic Opponent, Is In A Blind Panic And then Liebenthal actually tries to explain about how having no declared Democratic candidate is sending Milwaukee County […]

Over at the MacIver Institute this week, a look at how two communities are dealing with cuts in shared revenue – considering contracting with the county sheriff for police protection. If you were a local elected official and you could provide adequate police protection in your community at a lower cost, wouldn’t you be obligated […]

What a great time to be Jared Christiansen. I know I’m looking forward to the debates next fall. Print this entry

Well, either Jerry Bader at WTAQ just opened himself up to a serious slander lawsuit, or he has the explanation of why Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton decided not to run (audio). (Thanks to Lakeshore Laments.)  Look, I’m not looking for saints in public office.  But if her lifestyle was such an open secret supposedly, how stupid […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting Ed Thompson, the brother of former Governor Tommy Thompson, is running for state senator as a Republican.  Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) told reporters Monday that Thompson will announce later this week he is running against Sen. Katheleen Vinehout (D-Alma).  Thompson is best known as the Libertarian candidate […]
