Lena Taylor Only Democrat To Betray Milwaukee

Despite the high level of opposition to Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele's overreaching power grab, Representative Joe Sanfelippo has now formally introduced AB 85, the bill to turn Milwaukee County into a plutocracy.

Unsurprisingly, but no less disappointing, the treacherous Senator Lena Taylor was the only Democrat to snub party values and again betray her constituents by remaining a cosponsor at this fascist proposal:
State Rep. Joe Sanfelippo's bill to curb the resources and authority of the Milwaukee County Board includes just one Democratic co-sponsor.

State Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee), whose support for the measure was announced weeks ago, remains the sole Democrat willing to publicly endorse it. Sanfelippo had said earlier that he expected to round up several Democratic co-sponsors.
As I said, it's not very surprising that Taylor would turn her back on her vows and her constituents on this issue, given she has been doing this a lot lately.

And I'm not the only one to speak out about it. Here is a posting from Earl Ingram, former talk show host of WMCS-AM on Taylor's betrayal of her community:
It has become abundantly clear State Senator Lena Taylor is showing her true colors. I remember interviewing her on air one day and her response "was to let me do my thang". It is becoming clear what her thang is, not what her constituents want but what Lena Taylor wants. And how dare anyone question her because she knows what's best for her lowly constituents. She has always made it clear she's a one woman gang, it's always been , "me, me, I , I". She supported the castle doctrine , she supported concealed carry even though many in our community opposed it. Now she supports the expansion of school choice even though there is little accountability in it. Most democrats are in opposition, but what the heck Lena knows best. She has just been relected which has embolded her even more . There's money in school choice and the higher up you are, the more money is available to YOU. Pay close attention to what is being said, senator Taylor was one of the most out spoken during the recall election, now she supports the Governor in this wrong headed endeavor. "Politricks" at it's best you have been fooled, we must pay close attention to what people do once their in office. Instead of expansion of choice she should be focusing on ACCOUNTABILITY of these schools.
This is where I would advise Taylor to do some serious soul searching, but for her, it would only meaning locating all of the special interests she has sold it to.

  1. I like how a few dozen current and former union members who respond to a listserv is evidence of public opinion, while several thousand voters who go to the polls are representative of nothing.

    I bet the flying unicorns have a lot of pretty colors in your reality.

    1. Yes, because everyone that stands up for the people are union members, even the Republicans that were there expressing their opposition.

      Can we get some better trolls here please.

  2. Lena has a lot of problems and she certainly is all about herself, but on school choice her opinion does closely follow the views of the African American community. The other issues, yes she is selling the community down the river.

    2. No it does not. You found one African American and polling shows that 70% of African Americans in Milwaukee support school choice. It is not a democrat vs republican issue.

      None of this changes the fact that Lena has gone off the deep end on every other issue you mention.
