What's your name?
Who is Gladys Huber? She is apparently running against Democratic Rep. Sandy Pasch for the right to carry the banner of the Democratic Party in the recall election of Alberta Darling for Senate. Huber might be a nice person--a mother--a grandmother, religious or agnostic we know not. What we do know is that she is a "fake" Democrat. She is a real Republican. She is a disgrace because she has decided to lie to voters and run as a Democrat to force Pasch to run two times or, worse, the GOP could gang up against Pasch, fund Huber in the Democratic primary and she could win! Setting up the absurd situation of two Republicans holding hands in support of Darling.
What would the MJS do? Pants on fire? Wisconsin on fire? Cheaters beware? Go on vacation?
Here is my position. I think the Dems should play it straight. Do not yield to the temptation to run fake Republicans. Take the high road! Set up debates to demonstrate how dishonest it is to run "fake" Democrats. The Dems might lose one or two, but the voters in the future won't forget the lie that Gladys Huber is telling them. She is a disgrace. She belongs in the ash-can of Wisconsin's proud electoral history.
MARINETTE: Drove to Marinette to speak to a Marinette County Democratic Party and Organized Labor forum. Long drive but well worth it. Their forum is a model of what we need. It was spirited. We had lots of laughs, good arguments were heard respectfully, tough questions, community spirit and good feelings all around. The crowd made us think about the Wisconsin way not the Walker way. No arrogance. Open minds and respect toward one another. Let's have 72 of them!
I have seen a lot of crazy things including the governor, making some point, returning $810 million that we were entitled to use for high-speed rail! Incredible. Now the state is starting to return $37 million intended to extend broadband to rural and underserved areas to be used for broadband service to all schools and libraries! Some of the money has already been spent, so the loopy Fitzgeralds and loopier Walker are forcing the UW to return money already spent! Are they nuts? Yup! The privatizers fear competition from the Wisconsin co-op that was going to manage the broadband program.
Had Scott Walker been around before FDR's Rural Electrification Program the barns in Wisconsin would be dark! All students would be denied computers in our state. Yikes! Get these guys out of power.

Dear Mr. Garvey; Per your visit to Marinette I would like to communicate my problem with monopolies taking control of not just products and services but politics, religion, education and values be it local, state, country. Lack of litigation-anti-trust legislation and monitoring of regulations has filled the coffers of corporations hiding behind there international ID's for protection. Respect for customers/retail and resale must be our weapon to attack corporations arrogant themes for control of private citizens exposure to democracy. "Little people" like one Oil Executive communicated for hate of Oil Companies should be our clue in attacking there many agendas. Corporate Image is a tool that can be used to crush elite "artificial" domination. Marinette Progressives have a skip to their walk via your visit last week. Thanks!
