It was brought to my attention today, that two long time Democratic party insiders are now working with an extreme right wing organization.
John Jacobson( who worked for Mandela Barnes and helped others campaign) and Brandon Savage, (who has worked forvarious Democratic campaigns), have hung up their Democratic party badges and decided to throw in with a right wing organizatuon trying to destroy our schools amongst other things.
The Organization is called Wisconsin Property Taxpayers Incorporated.
While you might not have heard of WPTI, our politicians have as they lead all firms in lobbying time.
In order to save you time and headaches, we picked a few gems from their website and newsletter.
Through all of the cuts and changes our schools have gone through the past 6 years, many of them supported by WPT

Even advocating the punish the poor on SNAP benefits bills:
As I mentioned above, the State Legislature will debate a pair of bills on Tuesday that would eliminate potential fraud in Wisconsin's FoodShare Program.
One of the bills would limit the number of replacement cards that a benefit recipient receives in one year, and the other proposal would require a photo ID on "Quest Cards."
Nearly 900,000 Wisconsinites receive just over $1 billion in benefits.
The kicker for the "Voice of Wisconsin Property Taxpayers" is they lobbied IN FAVOR of the steve nASS bring back racist high school logo's bill. Nothing helps lower property taxes more than making fun of Native Americans.
How do you run a campaign for a Progressive candidate and then come and work for such an organization? I guess the answer is simple. Not very well.
My question is if you feel the attack on teachers and public education was so good, how do you volunteer on the campaign of one of the biggest defenders of public education? When she loses by a handful of votes, was that because someone who would so quickly jump ship was helping to sabotage the campaign? What was promised with that?
This comes on the heels of many of the former Democratic Party power structure quitting and heading to work for union busting, fake Democrat Chris Abele.
If the Democratic party is infested with people who are just check cashers and have no principles, there is no wonder that in a few short years we turned the state from blue to extremist red. How many others working in the party, for electeds or in campaigns would be so willing to run to the opposite side for a paycheck? Is there any vetting process in Democratic circles for hiring?
It is impossible to get a message of a better future than the Republicans sold to the people of WI when the people getting the message out do not believe it.
