trump-jan6-storm-capitolMatt highlights 5 articles on GOP attempts to nullify your vote and play politics with the pandemic.


MADISON - On this first anniversary of the Trump coup attempt, I wanted to flash a light on Wisconsin’s own collaborators. You can read my piece here:

Wisconsin's January 6 Collaborators

This week, I also wrote about a couple bills sponsored by Republican Rep. Timothy Ramthun that are scary, as you’ll see:

Wisconsin Republican Floats Way to Nullify Elections

New GOP Bill Would Dissolve the Wisconsin Elections Commission

Meanwhile, my colleague Mike Buelow, our research director, compiled a powerful report on those who bear some responsibility for the fact that Wisconsin has surpassed the morbid milestone of 10,000 fatalities from COVID:

Playing Lethal Politics with the Pandemic in Wisconsin

And my colleague Iuscely Flores, our racial equity and economic justice advocate, wrote an excellent related piece:

The COVID Crisis in Our Schools

I hope you like these articles.

The U.S. House passed the voting rights legislation in March 2021, and now the U.S. Senate must follow through. Consider using this excellent tool to write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Passing this legislation is crucial to bolstering our democracy.

Thanks for your concern and your activism.

Best,

Matt Rothschild
Executive Director
