Curiouser and curiouser

Looking back on the last week in Wisconsin it is hard to believe that this is the same state I grew up in.  The big arguments in the badger state used to be about milk prices and dairy subsidies.  Now we hundred million dollar legals battles ripping the state apart.  Now we have a huge spin doctoring, maliciously lying, p.r. machine defending a fraudulently elected governor.

Recently we found out that due to misappropriations in Milwaukee from a Walker staffer, that the state will have to refund nearly a million dollars to the federal government.  Also Ciara Matthews the new mouth piece for Scott Walker who calls all democrats and liberals "morally bankrupt" has been revealed to have been having a drug fueled affair with a reporter in Las Vegas as she was becoming married.  So much for family values.

Earlier today Walker staffer extraordinaire Tim Russel was in court again.  This is the guy that stole money for charities that work with the families of fallen service members.  Apparently the guy is just really bad with money, his various attorneys were arguing about money in court today.  Fortunately it didn't become a public spectacle as the arguments were heard in the judges chambers and the records sealed.

But life is not quite normal in Wisconsin these days and so the forces of contemporary politics in Wisconsin reared there ugly head today.  And the sealed transcripts of the lawyers arguments were intentionally leaked in a 55 page report I received about an hour ago.  And of course I love my readers and will not leave them in the dark on something this interesting, so here you go folks:

It is going to be a long week in Madison.  Besides the trials of Walkers staff members, and the very real possibility of the Governor actually being arrested before the recall election, there is just so much going on right now.  Kelley Albrecht has officially announced her candidacy to run against the reviled Robin Vos in this years elections.  Also the Dem's have announced that they have a solid candidate who will be going up against the equally vile Glen Grothman.

Interesting times indeed folks, and they just keep getting curiouser and curiouser.  Keep up the good fight folks, victory is within our sights even as our opposition, the tools & fools of the Tea party are falling apart and turning on each other.  Solidarity forever.

On Wisconsin!    FORWARD!!!!

More than a year ago, I thought you'd be lost to us, sacrificing yourself upon the veiled altar of public apathy. A friend of mine sought you out at the capital and learned of your tribulations and I was truly saddened by the losses you'd endured. She predicted that if you could overcome, that you might become one of the loudest advocates for the people in this state. She was right. My, my Matt, how you've grown. Keep up the fight! Never be silenced!
