It’s the Town of Waukesha edition. A Hamm/Van Scyoc twitter account sent three tweets in my direction, all saying the same thing: Then they blocked me so I couldn’t respond. Damn.

During a special board meeting Tuesday that lasted nearly two hours and was heated between supervisors, the board approved hiring Nickolaus in a 3-2 […]

Unless we can prove errors are purposeful, we look foolish screaming about fraud. – Jeff Christensen, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Something for both parties to remember. I do think […]
