The Kenosha Unified School District has an important election coming up for School Board. There is a candidate running, named William Mauer III that might be the single worst candidate in WI(at least since David Vanderleest) .
As Dan Bice reports:
Every election brings a new crop of questionable political wannabes.
But William Mauer III appears to be single-handedly lowering the bar for school board candidates across the state.
Just look at his rap sheet:
Records show Mauer, one of four candidates vying for two seats on the Kenosha School Board, has three disorderly conduct convictions since 2002, two drunken-driving offenses and a citation for possessing marijuana.
Beyond that, police reports from the past 20 years lay out a disturbing range of alleged behavior by Mauer. He has been accused of wielding a gun during a tiff over a lawnmower, grabbing an 18-year-old female roommate by the throat during a spat over marijuana and calling a hospital security guard a "faggot."
Good thing there's no zero-tolerance policy for school board candidates. The election is Tuesday.
As Capper likes to say - "there is more, there is always more"....
If you have a couple hours, you can peruse his rap sheet: There is so much more to this story than just a crazy school board candidate. In reality this story shows us exactly how the republicans feel about education in our state and how they will do anything to win!
1. What exactly are Mr. Mauer's credentials and motivation in running for school board?
Mauer -- a critic of the teachers union and supporter of Gov. Scott Walker (why do so many people who have mugshots also have private shots with Scott Walker? Why is the Governor so comfortable around people with such ethics deficits?)
2. Despite his extensive rap sheet, numerous OWI's and disorderly conducts amongst many other things, it doesn't matter to the local republican and tea party! Support Scott Walker and your golden! He has the FULL backing of the Kenosha Republican party!
3. Sadly, despite Bice's excellent report, he feels some sad pull to "balance his reporting" and compares Mauers opponent's 2009 bankruptcy(hardly unique in America) to the shameful behavior of Mauer. This did not belong in the story!
4. Once again, another republican victim. It wasn't his fault.
"You are being used in an attempt by the KEA to retake control of the (Kenosha United School District)," Mauer wrote. "I’m running because I know I can help the kids and because I can make sure that the resources provided by the taxpayers are being used in the best interest of their education."I do however, have to give him some credit, he knows how to get his tax dollars out of the Kenosha Police Department!
5. Finally, why do so many republican men in Wisconsin, "inadvertently" choke women?
In 2005, Mauer said he was cited for disorderly conduct and fined $5 after he was initially accused of domestic violence.I hope this disgraceful debacle has you rethinking republican backed candidates and lets you see exactly, how little, what our friends on the right, think about public education!
Mauer told police he had taken items that he owned from his 18-year-old roommate's room, prompting her to try to "get his weed" from his closet. While seeking his marijuana, she reported that Mauer grabbed her by the neck. He claimed he may have inadvertently done this while trying to take the woman by her shoulders.
Mauer said this week that the incident was overblown.
"Even the police knew there was no threat, but they were following Wisconsin law by arresting me," he said. "I represented myself and I put (her) on the stand. She told the judge all the things I had done for her and how I had been the only positive influence in her life."
If you are in Kenosha, PLEASE vote for Rebecca Stevens and Kyle Flood!
Your children are counting on you!
PS: The WI Knot-sies are so cowardly and immature that they have stolen Mr. Floods pictures and tried to create a fake profile for the young and upcoming candidate. Please punish this childish behavior by voting Mr. Flood into office!
PS: Mr. Mauer speaks volumes to what the republicans have done in our state via their CCW law:
Mauer, 55, noted that he has cleared three background checks in the past six months, one each in Wisconsin and Utah so he could carry a concealed weapon in the two states and the other to buy a subcompact 9 mm pistol.
If that doesn't help you sleep better at night, nothing will!
