Really? State Attorney General JB Van Hollen said county clerks could be prosecuted for issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. I sympathize with Van Hollen’s frustration, and technically he is correct, but does he really think county district attorneys are going to start arresting the clerks?

Novack fails the test Clerks responsible to uphold law We can forgive Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen for sounding like Chip Diller in “Animal House,” saying “Remain calm, all is well!” right before getting trampled by county clerks all over the state rushing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. After all, federal Judge Barbara […]

Shortly after state Attorney General JB Van Hollen announced he was not running for re-election, Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel all-but-declared his candidacy, complete with early endorsements. However, at the RightWisconsin website I explain why I’m not a fan of the plan to coronate Schimel as the Republican Party nominee. Here’s a bit from […]

The closing of the Golden Guernsey milk plant in Waukesha was not a failure of the anti-trust action taken by Attorney General JB Van Hollen’s office, it was a success story. Just ask state DOJ attorney Steve Means: Steve Means, one of the attorneys of record for the state Department of Justice in the Dean […]

Government interference led to Golden Guernsey closure Van Hollen not a milk market expert Waukesha Freeman Opinion Page a6  1/10/2013 Sometimes we just have to ask, “And how did it work out for you?” Shortly before Christmas, I had the two children in the car driving around looking at the Christmas decorations. We had just […]

Like thousands of other people, I was at the Romney/Ryan Homecoming Rally on Sunday. It may be one of those events like the Ice Bowl that so many more people will claim they were there than actually attended. My day at the Waukesha Expo Center inspired a guest column for who were kind enough […]

We interrupt this summer with breaking news that politics is breaking out in Waukesha. State Rep. Chris Kapenga announced yesterday that he is going to take on State Rep Paul Farrow (son of Margaret) to fill the upcoming state senate vacancy caused by State Senator Rich Zipperer leaving to join Governor Scott Walker’s administration. Kapenga’s […]
