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.

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.”
