Listen to “Investigating January 6 Insurrectionists” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast
Our panel discusses Speaker Robin Vos’ meeting with conservative conspiracy theorists who are urging illegal decertification of the 2020 presidential election. Will Trump be returned to power via midterm coup? The Wisconsin Election Commission does not pursue charges against Wisconsin’s fake electors. What does it mean? We review the implications of Gannett closing its West Milwaukee printing plant where it prints the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and numerous other Wisconsin newspapers. Is there any future for corporate-owned newspapers? Finally, the progressive firebrand brewer Kirk Bangstad from the Minocqua Brewing Super PAC joins us to talk about the PAC’s lawsuit alleging U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and U.S. Reps. Scott Fitzgerald and Tom Tiffany are barred from holding public office by the post Civil War 14th Amendment. Will they suffer the fate of confederate leaders?

Milwaukee County Board Spring Election
No matter what we look like, where we come from, or how much money is in our pockets, we all can agree that the safety and unity of all Milwaukeeans is a top priority. We must come together across political differences to protect all of the City’s residents and to start looking at alternative solutions to more police as the only answer to ensuring our community is safe.
