The People's Legislature (TPL)
The People's Legislature, an outgrowth of Fighting Bob Fest III, is gearing up. Hundreds of you voluntered to come to Madison in late October to let the lobbyist's legislators know that publicly financed campaigns must be adopted in Wisconsin.
Thursday, October 27, is the day. Details will be announced as we move forward, but for now plan on being in Madison on the 27th.
Do Parties Matter?
We often publish articles suggesting that the two major parties have merged because they go to the same financial backers. What is a political party? Read Joel McNally's article today about the Milwaukee Sheriff and then share your views with us.
Should the Democratic Party expel David Clarke? Denounce him? Expose him? And, if so, how about members of the Legislature who are similarly confused?
La Follette's reforms made parties weak. Is it time to revisit that question?
