The GAB / John Doe Witch Hunt was worse than you think.
The level of domestic spying done by disgraced former special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, Milwaukee Co. DA John Chisholm, the soon-to-be-disbanded Government Accountability Board and their staffs is far more broad than previously reported.
Well, what do you know. The soon-to-be-history Government Accountability Board and their hackneyed John Doe investigation of Wisconsin conservatives had me in their sights all along.

Owning and operating a small business means you’re often the first one in and/or the last one out of your office building.
It also means large chunks of your weekends are spent in that same office, working for clients. Here’s a little secret: I love it. My family comes first, but that is why I do what I do. My awesome wife works much harder juggling her job and her oversized role of raising the kids and keeping the home ship afloat. More…
The President and CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Kurt Bauer, sits down with me for an in-depth interview this week. What policy initiatives are important to Wisconsin employers, and why does WMC put such a premium on the Freedom of Speech? More…
