What the Tea Party & GOP hide from rural Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Senator Kathleen Vinehout has spent years compiling the information which shows exactly how much damage has been done by the Tea Party controlled Wisconsin GOP and the true cost to the tax payers.  This was done using only information which comes from the government of Scott Walker himself.

This information comes from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the state agencies which report to it.  Politicians are known for saying one thing and then doing another.  Just like how Scott Walker and Travis Tranel promise us that economically, Wisconsin is in great shape and then go behind closed doors to create a hack and slash budget full of emergency/desperation provisions because "economically speaking, Wisconsin is actually in terrible shape" and more and more extreme measures are needed to keep the ship of state afloat.

It is kind of like if Scott Walker and his pal Travis Tranel were walking around and loudly bragging about how they have billions of dollars in the bank but refuse to show anyone the bank statement to prove it.  Without proof, words are just words and nothing more.

Senator Vinehout ignored the words and went straight to the source to let the people of Wisconsin know exactly what is going on and where we are at this point in time.  And the information is very shocking and powerful indeed.  The chart at the top of this page for instance, shows how childhood poverty has grown in Wisconsin along with the cost to taxpayers due to the increase in need for free or reduced school lunches for children.  And please remember, this information comes from Scott Walker's government agencies themselves.

Please click on the link below to see the full presentation, the damage done and how a complete and detailed plan is waiting to be implemented which will turn everything around and return Wisconsin to prosperity and plenty.

Take action for justice!

Scott Walker political appointee Rebecca Bradley in conjunction with the Republican Party of Wisconsin and their wealthy, mostly out of state donors, have launched an attack ad airing all across Wisconsin. This ad is illegal in its intentional and malicious efforts to affect an election through fraudulent means. 

We called on TV Stations to take down the deceitful ad now running: "The advertisement in question refers to a case (14AP1270-CR State of Wisconsin v. Daniel Fierro) in which a defendant pleaded guilty to sexual assault, then appealed his conviction based on his contention he did not understand his plea deal. The Court of Appeals, in a unanimous three judge decision, sent the case back to the circuit court for a hearing on that question. The Circuit Court ruled the State had met its burden to prove Fierro did understand his plea agreement.
The advertisement, which presents the Fierro case, puts in bold letters on the screen at its start “Conviction Overturned.” That is absolutely false. Fierro’s conviction was never overturned. He was, has been, and remains in prison.
The facts in this case are indisputable. The Court of Appeals followed the law, the lower court followed the law and a man convicted of a crime has never left prison.
As you know, you have a duty "to protect the public from false, misleading or deceptive advertising." *Licensee Responsibility With Respect to the Broadcast of False, Misleading or Deceptive Advertising*, 74 F.C.C.2d 623 (1961). Failure to prevent the airing of "false and misleading advertising" may be "probative of an underlying abdication of licensee responsibility" that can be cause for the loss of a station's license. *Cosmopolitan Broad. Corp. v. FCC*, 581 F.2d 917, 927 (D.C. Cir. 1978).
In short, this advertisement is false, misleading, and deceptive. Your station should not be a party to its distribution, and should immediately cease airing it until such time as it is corrected.

Here is the link to a list of all the television stations in Wisconsin.  Please call them and ask them to remove the intentionally illegal, false and misleading advertising from Justice Bradley.

An explanation....

An explanation of the very confusing system used in primary elections. It is very important to remember that a delegates pledge to a particular candidate is not set in stone and are subject to change.

More to come.
