It’s Here! Anti-marriage $$ hits WI races

Update: Incumbent Mark Radcliffe in Assembly District 92 is also a recipient of  the anti-marriage money.  Here is his most-recent campaign finance report.

Today we discovered that Assembly Representative Ted Zigmunt (D-Francis Creek) has accepted $500 from Colorado millionaire and homosexual political activist/strategist extraordinaire Tim Gill.  All in all, Zigmunt has received almost $3,000 from the same homosexual activist contributors who helped flip the Assembly in 2008.

The contributions appeared in Zigmunt’s Fall Pre-Primary 2010 Campaign Finance Report with the State Elections Division, GAB.

This is just an initial finding; we expect to discover similar contributions in other, targeted state-level races in the state.  This state-level targeting is a relatively new political strategy employed by liberal activists–called the Colorado Model–and outlined in detail in the book The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado (And Why Republicans Everywhere Should Care).  Highly recommended read, for all citizens regardless of party affiliation.

    Wow, Google is sticking Barrett ads on this site.

    So, let me do a little Walker ad here:

    VOTE FOR SCOTT WALKER! He’s pro-life, pro-freedom, pro-small government and balanced budgets, pro-tax relief for citizens, pro-common sense.

    VOTE FOR SCOTT WALKER!!!

    Also, watch for donations from a Milo Pinkerton. He, too, is a rich gay-rights activist, and he may very well be interested in getting certain Democrats elected in this state.

    Read this PDF to see what they are all about.

    There seems to be a typo in the title of this post. Tim Gill is pro-marriage. He wants all loving, committed couples to have the opportunity to wed. After all, marriage makes for strong families.

  5. a mom says:

    Marriage is only marriage when it’s between one man and one woman. Anything else stretches the word beyond its definition into utter meaninglessness.

    So, no, Tim Gill is not pro-marriage.

    Mark — you probably were just being sarcastic, right?

    Fair Wisconsin: LGBT political action committees join forces

    9/22/2010

    Contact: Patrick Farabaugh, 608.441.0143

    Create strong, experienced, statewide political infrastructure for LGBT community

    Fair Wisconsin is set to welcome Laurie Guilbault and Dennis Kohler to the Board of Directors of Fair Wisconsin Inc. and the Fair Wisconsin PAC committee this week in a move that strengthens the political power of the state’s LGBT community. Guilbault and Kohler currently serve as Co-Chairs of Human Rights League PAC (HRL-PAC) and bring a combined 28 years of political action in the cause of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality and a strong Milwaukee voice to Fair Wisconsin.

    “Fair Wisconsin PAC and HRL-PAC are committed to advancing and achieving equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Wisconsinites through strategic electoral activity,” stated Fair Wisconsin Executive Director Katie Belanger.† “By uniting in a single political action committee, we are building a stronger, more effective operation to support pro-fairness candidates at every level across the state of Wisconsin. This advances our mission to be the strategic coalition builder and respected player needed to advance LGBT equality.

    Since 1997, HRL-PAC has helped elect candidates who work for and defend lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.† HRL-PAC has supported over 1000 pro-LGBT candidates and has sponsored community candidate forums, including the first ever LGBT-focused gubernatorial forum at PrideFest 2002 and the Milwaukee Mayoral Forum at PrideFest 2003.

    Guilbault and Kohler are excited to bring their years of experience to Fair Wisconsin.† “In the years HRL-PAC has been in existence, we’ve seen the number of candidates supporting the LGBT community grow exponentially,” stated Kohler.† “We believe that joining together with Fair Wisconsin will allow us to build on that momentum and elect the fair-minded leaders we need to defend recent gains like domestic partnership protections and continue getting tangible results to advance equality for LGBT Wisconsinites.”

    HRL-PAC will cease independent operations in the coming weeks.

    The Board of Directors of Fair Wisconsin Inc. will nominate Guilbault and Kohler for election at their September 25, 2010 board meeting in Milwaukee.† Fair Wisconsin Education Fund will also nominate former HRL-PAC committee member Steven Miller to their Boards of Directors at a later meeting.
