Joe Banske officially became the last candidate in the 97th Assembly race to mention yard signs are getting stolen. I know, everyone is upset that the wire-and-paper propaganda in their front lawns is disappearing in the middle of the night. They’re probably calling the campaigns begging for replacements or else calling the police to report […]

I can’t be the only one who noticed the little yellow flag indicating a gas line right where Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima was planting a campaign yard sign in the photo on his campaign’s Facebook page.   At least there’s a disclaimer on the yard sign, right? Remember kids, the campaign is not over until […]

For those of you keeping track of the Scrima for Mayor yard sign drama, the Lovely Doreen from Waukesha heard from District Attorney Brad Schimel who is declining to issue charges in the matter after the campaign promised to correct the signs. Dear Ms. Wigderson, We have confirmed that there are numerous signs without disclaimers. […]

I got asked, so what happens if Mayor Jeff Scrima’s campaign doesn’t follow your advice? So far, the yard signs remain untouched and without disclaimers, they tell me. Anyone can file a complaint. It doesn’t have to be the campaign. The phone number for Waukesha District Attorney Brad Schimel’s office is 262-548-7076. And, I realize […]

Or at least what they should be doing. Hopefully this is the last time that I play yard sign cop this campaign. The Scrima campaign is going to be going from one end of the city to the other looking for their yard signs and putting little disclaimers on them. If you notice in the […]

I make a lot of joke about yard signs, but this yard sign placement made me laugh. This is the view to the right as you enter Waukesha’s city hall through the front door: I’m guessing that unfortunately it’s within 100 feet of the door of the polling place so it’ll probably have to be […]

*Sigh* I see in the Waukesha Freeman Alderman Terry Thieme asked the police to do something about the illegally placed yard signs supporting Mayor Jeff Scrima. A couple of notes: 1. Yep, Chief Jack will get right on that. Right after he finishes polishing his Key to the City and talking to his lawyer about […]

I was late in posting last week’s column for the Waukesha Freeman on my website because of my trip out of town and then a sudden illness on my return, but the timing of the column was a little too good in light of what happened to Sean Kedzie, the son of State Senator Neal […]

Congressman Paul Ryan’s Democratic challenger within the 1st congressional district Rob Zerban is trying to make the claim that he is a competitive candidate. The Zerban polling memo from Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates argued Zerban remains a credible challenger. It also said the eight-point spread was found “after voters hear Zerban’s profile statements.” […]

I know I’ve written before how people should stop whining about yard signs getting stolen. If a yard sign is stolen, who does it really hurt? Campaigns make the yard signs so when they’re stolen the campaigns can issue the press release complaining about the awful tactics of the opposing campaign. However, when it crosses […]
