Gerrymandering is a vile scourge on democracy all over the country. But one could argue it’s at its worse right here in Wisconsin. We had the perfect putrid petre dish for it with the Three HorsesAsses of the Apocolypse — Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and Scott Walker. We got rid of one. And we have to finish the job before the Great State of Wisconsin is nothing more than Wisissippi.
Today’s ruling is a win for the people of Wisconsin ~ State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau
Respectfully, sir … you’re full of bullshit right up to your ears. Most recognize this as a power grab and political neutering and I suspect you do, too. The only reason it survived is because you planned and executed well your stacking of the State Supreme Court.
Vos and Fitzgerald … the Collins English Dictionary refers to a circumstance in which individuals are “beclowned” by making fools of themselves.
It was evident to any honest observer that the company’s promise to develop a manufacturing plant in southeastern Wisconsin that would ultimately employ as many as 13,000 workers represented an absurd and unobtainable promise by a foreign corporation that wanted to get on the good side of Donald Trump before the president started imposing tariffs.Cap Times Editorial
This is good. Mr. Harwood pretty much nails it right down to calling out the legislature for ignoring small farmers because they represent basically 20,000 votes and even less in campaign money.
Our legislature ignores this problem because we are talking about maybe 20,000 votes and very little in the way of campaign contributions, most of which comes from the corporate farms anyway.
“Republicans were surprised at how much attention it ended up getting and how intense the backlash was …”
I’m sorry … just how disconnected from reality can you possibly be?
Amazing how this works:
After years of railing against supposed voting fraud, Republicans have fallen silent or actively attacked a probe that threatens one of their own.
The best way to preserve political power? Drawing lines to ensure that the will of the people won’t matter.
The sheer contempt for democracy in these remarks is matched only by the deep and abiding contempt these two have for the intellect of anyone over the age of five.
Wisconsin, the state Gov. Scott Walker has led for eight years, is once again a national embarrassment.
