Apparently, I’m still not over it. How different Wisconsin would look under Governor Lawton …

‘Unacceptable’: Family Farms, Ag Advocates Hit Back After Sec Perdue Says Small Dairy Farms Destined to Die

Robin Vos says accommodations likely for paralyzed lawmaker 

 

He just can’t do what’s right without stomping his feet like a little child.

John Nichols: Gerrymandering empowers obstructionists like Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald | John Nichols

Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, left, and Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald could have made the flawed Foxconn deal better, but they failed to do so.

Scott Walker to join speaker’s bureau and help re-elect Donald Trump

Still being a pay-to-play whore for ALEC, the Kochs and others … he just won’t be doing it from the Governor’s office. At least we can take solace in the that.

Departing Gov. Scott Walker told supporters Tuesday he would be giving speeches, emphasizing tax cuts and working to re-elect President Donald Trump.
