gop-lame-turduckenMILWAUKEE - Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! We thank everyone who attended our Brew Fest fundraiser this week, including speakers Mandela Barnes, Gwen Moore and the Lisa Neubauer, candidate for State Supreme Court in April 2019. We discuss the potential GOP lame duck session in the State Legislature where Republican leaders want to take power away from Tony Evers before he is inaugurated the 45th Governor of Wisconsin. The Walker Administration reveals that it created a $1 billion dollar state deficit that was hidden from voters until after the election. We also bat around Walker’s petty unwillingness to apologize for his false accusations of incompetence in ballot count.

MADISON - Amidst all the coverage of Tony Evers’s narrow victory over Scott Walker last week, one story got lost: the great wins that occurred on pro-democracy referendums.

By overwhelming margins, citizens in four counties voted against partisan gerrymandering, and citizens in nine communities said they were in favor of amending the U.S. Constitution to overturn Citizens United. Here are the details:

Pro-Democracy Referendums Pass in Wisconsin, Elsewhere

Another story that didn’t get enough attention was the record amount of outside money that splattered our screens with mud in the lead-up to Election Day. Here’s our list of express advocacy groups, and the Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity tops it:

Reported Electioneering Group Spending Tops $36M in Fall Elections

And we continue to expose how big donors have gotten their way, time and time again, at the DNR under Scott Walker. Our most recent posting here was about the Kohlers and their golf course:

Ex-DNR Employee Says Agency Was Pressured to Approve Big Donor’s Golf Course

matt-rothschildWe’ll be vigilant, over the next six weeks, to watch for any last minute giveaways to donors, and we’ll press ahead with our pro-democracy agenda in the year ahead.

Thanks for all your support!

Best,

Matt Rothschild

veteranflagMADISON - This week, Assistant Minority Leader Dianne Hesselbein (D - Middleton) discusses Veterans Day and the importance of remembering those who served.

Audio File of Radio Address

dianne-hesselbeinThe text of Rep. Hesselbein's comments is presented below.

Hello, this is State Representative Dianne Hesselbein with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

On November 11th, Americans celebrated Veterans Day.

On this day we especially honor those who performed the highest duty any individual can offer our great nation – service in our Armed Forces.

Our brave veterans are a steadfast reminder of the sacred obligations we hold as Americans, both at home and abroad to protect our freedoms and way of life.

As a state legislator, I believe it is my duty to ensure when our service men and women return home, they are provided the opportunities they need to succeed.

That means opening the door to educational opportunities, ensuring access to high-quality healthcare, and breaking down barriers for veterans to enter the workforce.

On a personal note, I would like to thank my husband Bob for his 28 years of military service as a pilot in the Army and Air Force.

A debt we can never fully repay is owed to these brave individuals and I pledge to never stop working to move Wisconsin and our veterans forward.

Thank you.
