Before Democrat State Rep Sandy Pasch starts complaining about Republican State Rep Bill Kramer, maybe she should do some housecleaning on her side of the aisle. For example, we’re still waiting to see the press release calling for the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee to return the $1400 it received from Daniel Rottier in 2012. Or […]

State Representative Sandy Pasch (D-Shorewood) is facing scrutiny again for her campaign activities. This time the MacIver Institute is reporting Pasch used her state email to organize a closed-door meeting with the teachers union (MTEA) in Milwaukee and Wisconsin Democrats, including Democratic State Senator Chris Larson.

I wonder if any of them who were so determined to stop […]

Given what we now know about the ethical cloud surrounding Sandy Pasch, her campaign treasurer Jackie Boynton, Matthew Brusky, Citizen Action, and Wisconsin Jobs Now!, what should we call the whole scandal? I’m open to suggestions, or pick from the list below. Print this entry

So what do we know? We know that Wisconsin Jobs Now! was running a probably illegal get-out-the-vote effort for State Rep. Sandy Pasch (D-Whitefish Bay), using food and raffle prizes as inducements to vote. We know that Wisconsin Jobs Now! and Citizen Action share the same phone number and the same address, and that the […]

If a white conservative politician offered free barbecue ribs in a predominantly African American part of Milwaukee to get them to vote, how quickly would we hear screams of racism? Remember when liberals were politically correct and sensitive about such things? By the way, if the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel really feels that Sandy Pasch has […]
