You can also view it, since WisconsinEye recorded most of it.

This week, we also kept up our reporting on the problem of money in politics in Wisconsin.

Angie Trudell VasquezWe just posted a story about UW system president Ray Cross, and the political donations he and his wife have made over the past several years. Here it is:

Ray Cross and his wife contributed to GOP

And we wrote about Attorney General Brad Schimel’s formal opinion that ties the hands of the DNR on the issue of high-capacity wells. Here you can see that Schimel sided with the folks that shoveled a lot of money his way:

AG’s ruling on wells praised by special interests that spent $2.2M to elect him

And finally, the family that owns the most dangerous frac mine in the country, and also has a mine in Wisconsin near Prairie du Chien, has lavished money on Walker, as well:

clean-drinking-waterWith sound science and recommendations in hand, it’s time to get to work on the county’s public health emergency.


MADISON - When it comes to having access to clean, safe drinking water, 19 months is too long to wait. The time to send clean water to those with contaminated drinking water wells in Kewaunee County is now.

In October 2014, Clean Wisconsin and Midwest Environmental Advocates, along with petitioners Environmental Integrity Project, Midwest Environmental Defense Center, Kewaunee CARES and Clean Water Action Council of Northeast Wisconsin, filed an emergency petition to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) seeking immediate relief for county residents. The three requests in that petition were simple and clear: Provide people with clean drinking water, investigate the source of the well water contamination and hold the polluters accountable.
