“Early Voting Victory” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast
Our panel looks at a federal Appeals Court decision preserving a judge’s ruling allowing municipalities to expand early voting dates and locations in Wisconsin. Robert tells us more about a Citizen Action media event focusing on WEDC’s fraudulent job creation numbers for Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood and how WEDC’s failed strategy is not up to the scale of the problem. Jorna discusses dropping ACT scores for Wisconsin students and makes the obvious connection to cuts in school funding and attacks on teachers which has resulted in a growing teacher shortage throughout the state. The Trump campaign hires Stephen K. Bannon, chairman of the Breitbart News website and launches Wisconsin Women for Trump which includes Darlene Wink who was convicted of doing Scott Walker campaign work while in the county executive's office and a GOP operative granted immunity to testify in the probe, which led the convictions of six individuals.
