MADISON - I hope you had a nice holiday!

It’s been two years now since the Jan. 6 insurrection and coup attempt, and still we’ve had no accountability for Donald Trump and no accountability for his accomplices here in Wisconsin.

I’m fed up with the slow pace by Merrick Garland, and by the unwillingness, at least so far, of Wisconsin prosecutors to go after Ron Johnson and the 10 false electors. So I wrote this piece:

Josh Kaul, Ismael Ozanne Must Pursue Ron Johnson, False Electors Now!

If you’re concerned about accountability for Trump and the leaders of this criminal conspiracy nationally, join a virtual rally in D.C. tomorrow, Friday, at 11:00AM CT/Noon ET in observance of the two-year mark since the attack on the U.S. Capitol. January 6 is a day to remind us we must continue working to protect and defend our democracy. The rally is sponsored by the Not Above the Law Coalition and Declaration for American Democracy with special guests Martin Luther King III, Arndrea Waters King, Congressman John Sarbanes, and tentatively Congressman Jamie Raskin. Here’s how you can join:

Earlier this week, I was pleased to see Gov. Evers give a full-throated defense to democracy in his second inaugural address, which he didn’t get enough credit for. So I gave him some:

At the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, we’re keenly aware of how crucial the next Wisconsin Supreme Court race is, and we’re tracking the money side, as well, as you’ll see here:

Two Liberals, Two Conservatives Seek Open High Court Seat

We’ll be posting a lot more about this race in the weeks ahead. Two dates to remember: February 21 is the primary (technically nonpartisan), and April 4 is the general. Mark your calendars, and bring a friend or two! You can find information about what is on your ballot and any changes to your polling location by visiting the State of Wisconsin's voter resource page: MyVote.Wi.Gov.

I hope you have a nice weekend.
