John Doe Reform:
follows the news in Wisconsin has heard of the John Doe
investigation which was orchestrated by the now infamous
John Chisholm, Milwaukee’s District Attorney.
A John Doe
investigation is a tool that gives prosecutors a great
deal of latitude to investigate alleged crimes.
The John Doe
investigation that was conducted by Chisholm in concert
with the Government Accountability Board (GAB) was focused
on Governor Walker and various conservative action
groups. Homes were raided, property was confiscated and
gag orders were issued. Witnesses were interrogated and
intimidated; lives were destroyed. The problem is
that no crimes had been committed. The only meaningful
evidence to come out of the process was that Chisholm's
wife doesn’t care for the Governor. It’s my opinion
that GAB Director Kevin Kennedy and DA John Chisholm
belong in jail. They systemically infringed on the
1st amendment rights of private citizens who were simply
exercising their constitutional rights to engage in the
proposal to rein in the John Doe process is being
offered by State Rep. David Craig. The measure will
prevent future abuses of the tool while maintaining the
ability of investigators to prosecute gang-related drug
cartels and related activity.
How many of you
would like to apply for a job with a series of open-ended questions and a self-assessment exam? How would
an employer quantify those candidates without a resume
process? That is the current civil service system, a
process over 100 years old.
AB 373 will
modernize the state's hiring process, by using resumes
versus the outdated self-assessment exam.
system also would standardize the term "just cause" for
those inferior or unsuitable performance behaviors. If
someone in the private sector committed a serious
offense' he or she would get fired. Physical violence,
harassment, being intoxicated or possession of a
controlled substance while at work would land most of us
in the unemployment line. Under the proposed reforms,
theft of property, conviction of a crime, falsifying
business records or not showing up for three working
days in a calendar year are all reasons to be let go.
state agencies to take appropriate disciplinary action
for misconduct. These reforms will align the state with
common sense and eliminate the state's gray area
surrounding the state's ability to terminate based on
reforms would also provide a preference to veterans, so
all things being equal veterans would be hired first,
including the addition of certain qualifying
spouses of veterans. This would replace the current system of just
applying preference points.
It’s just the
beginning of the process but it appears that the measure
has some very good reforms.
Surplus: The Winner is… Wisconsin!
and the leaders of our conservative team deserve a
shout out for ending the fiscal year with a $135.6
million budget surplus!
Ending Gun Free Zones:
"sitting duck" like a gun free zone. There is a
proposal here in the legislature to allow those with a
conceal carry permit to carry on Wisconsin's college
campuses. The measure is getting a great deal of push
back from college leaders who don't understand the
concept of "law abiding citizens" having guns. I have
signed on as a co-sponsor.
God Bless Wisconsin!
Protect your 2nd Amendment Rights!
