Citizen: An open letter to Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen on same-sex marriage

Dear Attorney General Van Hollen, please tell me that after last Tuesday's judicial schooling of your Assistant Attorney General Timothy Samuelson that you will finally consider dropping your defense of Wisconsin's clearly unconstitutional ban on marriage equality. >More
 Citizen: Tell us where you stand on same-sex marriage, Gov. Walker

Dear Gov. Walker, the AP quoted you as saying that your position on same-sex marriage is irrelevant: "My position has been clear. I voted in the past. It doesn't really matter." You do realize that you are the governor of our state, right? >More
 Citizen: Yes, Gov. Walker, there is 'significant movement' toward marriage equality in Wisconsin

But this year, I noticed several hooligans engaging in behavior that many of those in the Solidarity Sing Along have been cited for in the past year. >More
 An open letter to new Wisconsin Capitol Police Chief David Erwin

You may not know this, but it has always been a place for citizens to congregate, a place to raise voices against the worst of legislative assaults on our rights, freedom, and way of life. There is a rich history of protest and citizen involvement in the Capitol, and particularly its rotunda, a place as close to a statewide town hall as can be found anywhere. It seems that you are determined to overturn that history, and make the Capitol and its denizens available only to those who can afford to pay for the privilege. >More
