Leader of effort to recall Wisconsin governor boasts she plans to ‘make up’ lies to trick the media

Published

On Monday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Misty Polewczynski, the leader of the effort to recall Gov. Tony Evers (D-WI), boasted on Facebook that she plans to make up lies and misdirections to trick the media trying to cover their plans.

“‘I’m going to do an interview this afternoon and will probably make up some crap to tell them,’ Misty Polewczynski wrote Monday on Facebook in an exchange about who should run against Evers. ‘I like when they look dumb. Plus they’ve drug my name through the mud,'” reported Patrick Marley and Molly Beck. “In an earlier post, she discredited figures she had provided to the Racine Journal Times. ‘I would not pay attention to that number given to them!’ she wrote to backers of the recall effort after one person noted a story on the recall effort got the number of signatures collected from Polewczynski.”

Polewczynski, who was convicted of forgery, check fraud, and bail jumping in the mid-aughts, is mounting the recall effort “because she didn’t believe Evers did enough in response to looting and arson in Kenosha following a police shooting,” and because she opposes the state COVID-19 restrictions. The recall drive began in August.

In an email to the Journal Sentinel, Polewczynski denied lying about the number of signatures. She also deleted the post saying she would “make up some crap” about who would run for governor in the recall.

Evers has been a frequent target of right-wing ire for his COVID-19 restrictions, many of which have been dismantled by right-wing state courts.

Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.

Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”

‘You can’t vote no’: GOP canvasser gets schooled at Michigan certification meeting

Published

on

A Republican member of Michigan's Board of State Canvassers was confronted by a former state elections director over attempts to delay certification of the state's election results without a vote.

"I think, first of all, the answer is, of course, you can't vote 'no,'" Chris Thomas told Board member Norm Shinkle. "There is no 'no' in this circumstance. Each of you play a necessary role -- you're at the pinnacle of Michigan's democracy -- you're the endgame of the statewide elections for 2020."

Thomas went on to say that after 5.5 million people have exercised their right to vote, it's the Board's responsibility to make the results "which are already widely known, official."

Power-hungry Republicans do not fear Trump — it’s worse than that

Published

on

There’s a presumption at work among members of the Washington press corps that needs rethinking. That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
