The Mike Tate Lemon

By Jeff Simpson

Mike Tate, the former head of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, continues to cost the people of Wisconsin dearly!  

It was not enough that he oversaw a Wisconsin that went from the Senate, Assembly and Governor being all Democrats to all three branches being not only Republican, but the Democrats are in such a minority that they are irrelevant in our state.

Now the DPW has to pay an extra $23,000 for his past incompetence.

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin has paid a $23,000 fine to federal regulators for campaign finance violations during the recall campaigns of 2011 and 2012.
Those violations include failing to keep required payroll logs in 2011 and 2012 and underreporting its spending in 2011 by about $185,000, according to an agreement between the state party and the Federal Election Commission. It was first reported by the Center for Public Integrity.

What does $23000 buy in an election?  Three months of a well placed billboard in the Milwaukee area or 7 months of  one in the important Fox Valley!

Instead we have to piss this important money away to cover for a lack of institutional knowledge by the former head of the party.  

We got stuck with a lemon and paid dearly for it!!!

  1. I tried to tell people that when I challenged him but not enough people believed me. Tate single handedly destroyed the state party but if he ran for the office again I am sure he would get elected.
