MADISON - Saturday marks the 13th anniversary of the notorious Citizens United decision, so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to try show how disastrous that decision has been:

Citizens United at 13

This week, we also kept up the pressure, with our allied groups in the Wisconsin Voting Rights Coalition, to call for the resignation of Robert Spindell, the member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission who bragged about racist voter suppression in Milwaukee.

Here’s the letter, drafted by All Voting Is Local, that we signed on to:

Voting Rights Advocates Call for the Resignation of Wisconsin Elections Commission Member Robert Spindell

wec-spindell-2023Spindell was appointed by Majority Leader Sen. Devin LeMahieu, and serves at his pleasure.

So, if you haven’t already, please demand that LeMahieu dump Spindell.

> You can reach Sen. LeMahieu’s office by calling (608) 266-2056.

> Or contact him on Twitter at @SenatorDevin.

Spindell, by the way, was also one of the 10 false electors from Wisconsin.

No one with his record should be able to sit on the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

This week, we also reported on the biggest donors so far in the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as you’ll see here:

I also want to draw your attention to an excellent piece that my colleague Iuscely Flores wrote for MLK Day last Monday:

Honoring Martin Luther King’s Legacy

I hope these pieces interest you, and thanks again for your pro-democracy activism!
