Kenosha Judge Eviscerates First Amendment In Bizarre Ruling – Opinion

Circuit Court Judges like David Wilk (D) can’t change the first amendment, no matter how much they hate it.

That’s exactly what David Wilk tried to do in an oral/written ruling from this past Monday. Let’s start with Judge Wilk’s beginning. Wilk attended Hamline

  1. No story here. “Coveted” endorsement is a stretch. Did anyone really think Kerkman, Steil and Michels were going to endorse a Democrat?

    1. ““Coveted” endorsement is a stretch.”
      More like “Welcome Ms. Nedweski to status-quo good ‘ol boys club”.

      Any overwhelming urge for political reform and protecting the taxpayer wi flew out the window with endorsements from lifetime pol hacks.

  2. Nedweski a person of action, is so incredibly effective on a local level, we can only hope she can can continue to be if elected. An endorsement from Paul Ryan protege’ , do-nothing Bryan Steil is a red flag.

    1. “An endorsement from Paul Ryan protege’ , do-nothing Bryan Steil is a red flag.”
      Yes….it certainly is.

  3. Kevin, it’s great that you include everyone’s comments to show the openness of your platform unlike the bigs of social media. However, I laugh whenever I see the stupid posts from “anonymous.” This person seems to feel as if he must put his 2 cents worth of stupidity into every article you write. In his case I wouldn’t mind if he were blocked just because of how bitter he sounds in his comments. Keep up the good work !

    1. Hey dipshit, if you don’t post with a name it automatically puts anonymous.

      Anonymous (different from the OP)

    2. strange that someone who posts as Pd doesn’t see the fuktard irony when they dish on ones posted by, “anonymous”, not to mention being so ignorant that they actually think all those anonymous posts are by one person. Another Mandela Barnes/ Bob Wirch voter, no doubt. :0

  4. She was just elected to the county board. Is serving on both the county board and state legislature a conflict???? That said, I don’t know squat about her opponent.

  5. She has done. Orbi g with the committee she now serves on and Chairs. HUGE disappointment. Just like Kerkman.

  6. Watched her run a budget meeting the week. Didn’t even understand simple Robert’s Rules of Order. Kenosha County residents are getting screwed by Nedwiski’s serving on the county board. She is nothing more than a RINO, just like her endorser Kerkman, or should I say Skankman.
