Waukesha Freeman January 14, 2016 Page A6 Opinion Barca’s search for civility Gannon’s finger wave hardly only incident I must have missed something. When state Rep. Bob Gannon, a Republican, made an obscene gesture to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca, the fake outrage was just silly. Reporters took to Twitter and Facebook to report the […]

For giggles, I watched on Wisconsin Eye the “debate” in the state Assembly from Wednesday night about the campaign finance reform law changes. By now everyone is aware the Democrats took turns claiming they were recusing themselves. However, if they were seriously recusing themselves, they shouldn’t have spoken against the bill, yet several of them took the […]

It’s the gift that keeps on giving to Scott Allen. On Wednesday, Charlie Sykes on WTMJ made a verbal jab at Brandon Rosner (37:20 minute mark) for making what Sykes called, “the single stupidest comment made by a candidate.”  Yes, there was a reminder that Rosner gave money to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca while Allen […]

Hey, Brandon Rosner gave money to Assembly Democrat Minority Leader Peter Barca so he knows a Democrat when he sees one. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s  political gossip columnist Dan Bice, Rosner defended himself on the Barca matter by pointing out his opponent Scott Allen posed for pictures with Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke at […]

Bob Dole said if you want a friend in politics, get a dog. Assembly candidate Brandon Rosner has an interesting friend. Records show Rosner donated $100 to State Rep Peter Barca, the Democratic leader in the Assembly, in 2010. Rosner was also on a host committee for a fundraiser for Barca in 2009, according to […]

Each year I make a list of predictions, and each year we examine where I went wrong. Unfortunately the end of the Mayan calendar did not mean the end of the world, so we have 50 predictions to sort through. It might be easier to don the sackcloth and walk barefoot through Canterbury while being […]

If Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha*) spent more time worrying about the leadership of his own party instead of the Republican leadership, he might actually… naah. The Republicans did too good of a job decapitating the Democratic leadership in last November’s election. The adults are gone, and Barca is playing with a bullhorn on […]

Is State Representative Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) serious? Before the Republican members of the State Senate arrived in the chambers, Barca rose to complain about rules supposedly not being followed Friday night. Of course, he had nothing to say about one of the members of his caucus, State Rep. Gordon Hintz, telling a member of the […]

I guess it isn’t being rushed through.  At least, not according to State Representative Peter Barca. Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, D-Kenosha, said the tradition of the house is to allow debate to flourish beyond the rules. He said a number of his caucus members have worked on the issue for two years. “We’re not […]
