It didn't take Vos and Fitzgerald long to try and blame their, and Walker's mess on Evers.

“In a statement released Wednesday, Vos and state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, wrote:

“We don’t blame Foxconn for altering plans in an ever-changing technology business. It’s also not surprising Foxconn would rethink building a manufacturing plant in Wisconsin under the Evers Administration. The company is reacting to the wave of economic uncertainty that the new governor has brought with his administration. Governor Evers has an anti-jobs agenda and pledged to do away with a successful business incentive for manufacturing and agriculture.”

The Eternal Campaign of Scott Walker

https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2019/01/08/murphys-law-the-eternal-campaign-of-scott-walker/

“In short, Walker plans to keep himself in the public eye while building toward his next campaign for public office.”

Walker is hoping to get to the 1% recount through military ballots and challenging absentee ballots.

“We need the official canvass and for military ballots to be counted before any decision can be made," said Walker senior adviser Brian Reisinger in a statement. "Thousands of ballots were damaged and had to be recreated. Until there is a comparison of the original ballots to the recreated ballots, there is no way to judge their validity."

Wanker hasn't yet conceded.

He must be hoping that Waukesha pulls another bag of votes out of their ass.

Joel Kleefisch, our Lieutenant Governors husband, will not seek re-election for his assembly seat.

He’s using the Paul Ryan “the children need me” excuse.

Jessica Willis, of the patriarchal Christian Willis family, tells her story of abuse

at the hands of her father.

Source: jessicawillisfisher.com

As far back as I can remember, I was sexually abused by my father. I figure I was around three years old in some of the earliest memories. Initially, I had no way to know that anything was wrong. When I did eventually come to realize the fact, I had no way to accurately express what was happening to me. There followed immense shame, distrust and hurt throughout my childhood – even in the happy times. Thus ran the two parallel storylines that became my life.

Not sure about everywhere, but this seems to be a recurring theme in North And West Wisconsin.

It only takes a couple of school board elections to destroy a school district and divide a community.

Its pretty bad when Tommy Thompson calls Walker a bully.

“Former Wisconsin GOP Governor Tommy Thompson (1987 — 2001) had some blunt truth for Trump, state GOP Governor Scott Walker and other Republicans. Thompson said: “He’s (Trump) a bully, and the president should not be a bully.” And, Wisconsin Public Radio reported: “Thompson predicted the Republican Party and … Walker could face historic losses in November’s elections.” Thompson also contrasted his electoral and governing style to Trump’s and Walker’s: “The philosophy now is … 50 percent plus one vote. … don’t have to worry about those other people. I (Thompson) wanted every vote.” Small-town Wisconsin wisdom.”

Good read about Walkers failed power-grab.

“The proposed bill would have made several changes to Wisconsin law on special elections to fill state senate or assembly seats

“If successful, Walker’s proposal would have offered new and interesting strategies for future governors intent on molding the legislature to their liking. Presumably, the calling of a special election would become discretionary. With no legal requirement to promptly call a special election a governor could promptly call special elections to fill vacancies in districts likely to be won by his or her own party, while ignoring vacancies in districts favoring the other party.”
