From my Waukesha Freeman column on July 21st: In the case of the six Republican state senators that are being recalled, they will need to put the focus on the Democrats’ track record in screwing up Wisconsin fiscally, forcing the drastic budget cuts this year. That will probably be impossible for two of the Republicans. […]

Republicans have chance of holding state Senate Nygren story does not inspire confidence  Can we dispense with the obvious? Democrats were already spinning Tuesday’s election results as “building momentum” in the recall elections. It’s a clear example of “say anything and hope it sticks.” Democratic state Sen. Dave Hansen defeated recall organizer David VanderLeest rather […]

Is there no limit to the size of the Wasserman’s ego that he can’t let go even after he lost by 1,990 votes? However, some Wasserman backers are raising questions about whether all ballots in Shorewood included the contest. Shorewood Village Clerk Sherry Grant said today all the ballots were identical and there were no […]

At least Darling beat Wasserman, Coleman beat Al Franken in Minnesota, and Mitch McConnell won re-election in Kentucky. Print this entry

I’m surprised this interview of Sheldon Wasserman by WISN’s Mark Belling is not being pushed by Republicans more. Belling grills Wasserman on a host of issues, revealing Wasserman as a weaseling, lying, liberal pretending to be something he is not. The interview is tough but fair.

In this week’s column for the Waukesha Freeman (just $.50 at your favorite gas station), I took a look at the Sheldon Wasserman campaign and the Ruth Page Jones campaign.

State senate candidate and current State Representative Sheldon Wasserman (D-really) is getting free advice from One Wisconsin Now (OWN)* regarding his pledge to Americans for Tax Reform never to vote for a single tax increase: Before he keeps insisting we can’t raise any new taxes, Sheldon should read the new report by the U.S. Government […]

This week we look for the Idiot Politician of the Week with a surgeon’s precision. Can we ask for a local? How about a Coggs? Milwaukee County Supervisor Elizabeth Coggs? Because nothing puts the loco in local politics like a Coggs. Having learned about Milwaukee Alderman Mike McGee Jr. receiving a transportation allowance while sitting […]

Former State Senator Tom Reynolds has formed a group, Clean Sweep Wisconsin, to recruit candidates in the Milwaukee area to run in the Democratic primary against incumbent legislators. The idea makes sense. After all, while Reynolds was a Republican, he was a very independent Republican. Reynolds has never been about the party. Democrats dominate the […]

I had a nice conversation with a retired veteran in the Menomonee Falls area, Joe Sturmberg, who called State Representative Sheldon Wasserman (Dem) after Wasserman left a note on his door saying he had been in the area. Wasserman is campaigning for state senate against the incumbent Senator Alberta Darling (Rep). Sturmberg told me he […]
