Paying for Elections

Share

There has been some discussion in the news regarding the electoral process and a futile attempt by the Wisconsin State Senate to reform it. Several bills were sent to the Assembly to reform such things as the State Supreme Court races and fund raising. These were all conveniently dropped into committee to die by the Assemble Speaker, Mike Huebsch. Electoral reform is greatly needed! Wisconsin Democracy Campaign released the results of a recent study which estimated that more than $1630 were paid every election cycle by every taxpayer in Wisconsin for sweet heart deals, give aways , and tax breaks for special interests and corporations. I am going to play issue ad person here and urge you to call up Mike Huebsch and tell him you want election reform. 608.266.3387 I hope that is OK for blogs on OWN.
