george-floyd-protest-mdsnMADISON - We’re living in a historic moment.

We’re witnessing the biggest mass movement in this country in the last 50 years. And from studying history, we know that progressive mass movements are what propel positive change in this country.

I reflected on this moment, and this movement, in a talk I gave by Zoom to the Rock County Progressives last night:

On Racism, Voter Suppression, and Democracy

We also posted something on the political spending by police unions. They were split about evenly, but the Milwaukee Police Association gave overwhelmingly to Republican candidates, as we note here:

Police Groups, Unions Spent $2.3M on Lobbying and Elections

On the gerrymandering front, I noticed that Scott Jensen is up to his old tricks again. He’s filed a request with his pals at the Wisconsin Supreme Court urging them to take up any lawsuits that might arise during the redistricting process next year. It’s a preemptive strike, as I explain here:

Scott Jensen Tries to “Pre-Rig” Redistricting

Have a nice weekend, and join a protest if you can.
