Former Racine Mayor John Dickert was arrested Sunday afternoon in the Village of Mount Pleasant In Racine County following a reported road rage incident.
Dickert is currently the administrator of state and local finance in the Evers Administration Department of Revenue.Mount Pleasant Village Police Captain Brian Smith tells me police were called around4 pm this past Sunday (March 22) after a confrontation between two motorists in the 5200 block of West Washington Avenue (Highway 20). That’s a bit west of the Racine city limits and a major thoroughfare. Smith could not give specifics of the incident saying all reports have been turned over the Racine County District Attorney. He did say the two motorists got into an argument about some driving issue and that Village Police were called. That’s when Dickert was arrested and cited.
As mentioned, the case has been referred to the Racine County District Attorney for possible criminal charges. Dickert has been cited but hast not yet been charged”.

“A University of Michigan lesbian crafting group is facing charges of bias for excluding transgender women born male.
In launching last spring, “Lez Get Crafty” limited membership to lesbians looking to “express their creative side.” Flyers said as much, that the group was only for “lesbian Womyn-born-Womyn.””
MADISON — Mr. Task Force is at it again.
After signing a record 63 executive orders last year, Gov. Tony Evers signed another four in January — three of them creating a commission or task force.
Leave it to Evers to try to circumvent the Republican-controlled Legislature he is loathe to work with.
His latest order creates the Governor’s Task Force on Student Debt. A sop to debt-laden college students and graduates, the task force — like Evers’ myriad other government panels — was invented to create the appearance of action. Its mission is to look into the causes of student debt and to research the best ways to reduce its burden. It doesn’t take a task force to know that higher education is unaffordable to many and it has created a generation of indentured servants, indebted for years and years into their adult working lives.
MADISON — The big story recently for Foxconn-hating media outlets was that the Taiwan tech giant’s slower development pace in Racine County could free up as much as $150 million for the state.
Buried in the coverage was the real story: that the incentives package agreement crafted by Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) is protecting taxpayers.
The Legislative Fiscal Bureau last month posted fresh projections showing the state’s general fund is expected to take in $800 million more in tax revenue than previously expected.
LFB also notes that the 2019-21 state budget includes maximum cash payments Foxconn would receive should it hit its employment and investment targets. All told, the company could earn nearly $3 billion in incentives over time.
As the mainstream players gleefully reported, Foxconn hasn’t created enough jobs or made enough capital expenditures to earn hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits under the terms of the $10 billion development agreement. While Foxconn has not hit early development goals, it hasn’t been collecting on incentives.
And that’s the ultimate point for taxpayers.
“I think this is a taxpayer protection story,” said state Sen. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield). He said the incentives deal specifically requires Foxconn to “perform first” before it receives tax credits.
Democrats have blasted the Foxconn deal, mainly because it was the work of Republicans. More so, it was the work of Republicans they truly loathe, Walker and President Trump.
MADISON — The Tavern League of Wisconsin is up to its old tricks again, trying to slip a Mickey to lawmakers with a bill that would extend bar hours for the week of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee while crushing the emerging wedding barn industry.
The bill draft, written by former Tavern League president and supper club owner, Rep. Rob Swearingen (R-Rhinelander), among other Republicans, would require so-called wedding barns to obtain a liquor license. It also would expand bar times to 4 a.m. in a dozen Southeast and south-central counties — including Milwaukee and Dane counties — during the four days of the Democrat convention in July.
This cocktail of legislation should come as no surprise. The powerful Tavern lobby has been pushing its Capitol weight around for some time in pursuit of a licensure bill. As Empower Wisconsin first reported in October, the group has been trying to couple the bar time proposal with its hit on wedding barns since shortly after the Democratic National Committee selected Milwaukee as host city for this year’s liberalpolooza.
The legislation also would trim the hours of operation at small breweries while granting booze permits for Road America racetrack in Elkhart Lake and State Fair Park.
Steve Nagy, operator of Homestead Meadows, a popular rural Outagamie County wedding barn, said the Tavern League and their legislative allies are trying to create a sense of urgency to pass the bar time bill — and its attached proposals — before the end of the abbreviated legislative session. Ultimately, it’s a sneak attack aimed at driving competitors out of business, Nagy said.
That describes Vos and his Right Wing Operatives exactly. Please – go AWAY Boss Vos – and your gang of criminal, stupid and amoral operatives.
UPDATED to respond to Kriminal Republithug Kingpin Operative Tan Sandy Dandy and his Tea- Tard Co-horts:
Since the November election, I have been concerned that Governor Tony Evers would try to undermine the state’s contract with Foxconn Technology Group. This week the new governor told members of the media that he wants to renegotiate the contract, and he doesn’t believe the Taiwanese company can create 13,000 jobs in Wisconsin. Like many of you, I was stunned when I heard these remarks. As I said on the Jay Weber Show on News/Talk 1130 WISN, it is beyond my level of understanding to think a governor of the state of Wisconsin is basically rooting for the failure of the largest economic development project in the state’s history.
Luckily, WEDC negotiated an ironclad contract with expectations from both sides. Foxconn also released a statement saying it remains committed to the contract and job creation across Wisconsin.
I remain confident that Foxconn will continue to work toward its goal of creating 13,000 jobs. Our state already is enjoying the economic benefits of the company’s investments in the Dairy State. As Foxconn moves forward on its plans in our state, I’m open to hearing if any flexibility is needed regarding the project, which I hope is the intent of Governor Evers.
Apparently it is way beyond Rep Vos’s understanding that the agreement between WEDC and FOXCONN stipulated a Gen 10.5 Manufacturing Facility!
From the Agreement between WEDC and FOXCONN:
From The Cap Times:
After a week of headlines raising questions about Foxconn’s plans for Wisconsin, Gov. Tony Evers said Friday he is comfortable with the technology company’s commitment to the state.
“Frankly I think what they said recently has been relatively consistent, it’s just a matter of their communication strategy being more consistent,” Evers told reporters in the state Capitol. “I’m comfortable that they’re still committed to the state, they’re still committed to this Generation 6 technology, but that doesn’t mean we won’t continue to encourage them to be more transparent and more consistent.”
Shortly before Evers’ comments, Foxconn Technology Group said in a statement that it will move forward with plans to construct a Generation 6 facility in southeastern Wisconsin. So-called Gen 6 factories generally produce small LCD screens for cell phones, tablets and small televisions.
Although Foxconn originally billed its planned Wisconsin facility as a Generation 10.5 LCD plant, the company has said since last year that it will instead start by building a smaller Gen 6 plant. Foxconn executive Louis Woo has said the company’s southeastern Wisconsin campus will be built in a phased approach.
The confusion surrounding Foxconn’s plans for Wisconsin started with a report on Wednesday published by Reuters. In an interview, Woo told Reuters the company was considering changing the focus of its facility in Mount Pleasant.
Woo told Reuters the company expected to hire mostly researchers and engineers rather than manufacturers, citing the high costs of building TV screens in the United States. He said about three-quarters of the jobs in Wisconsin would be in research and development and design.
In Reply to Robin Vos:
WI Gov. Tony Evers is holding Foxconn to it’s promise to perform under the contract which stipulated a Gen 10.5 facility, which Foxconn has failed to do. Thus – Foxconn is now acting in violation of the contract terms. Thus any contract with Foxconn is null and void. I fully support WI Gov. Tony Evers in his demand for specific performance.
Why do you, Rep. Robin Vos want to allow Foxconn to violate the agreement, and yet still receive the benefits of the Agreement?
Why do you support such criminal activity?

From the JT:
RACINE — Gov. Tony Evers’ proposed budget, if adopted in its current form, could change how much parents have to pay in child support by potentially eliminating the birth costs that some fathers pay.
Eliminating the cost would leave a budget hole, but could help decrease the state’s black infant mortality rate by eliminating a barrier to prenatal care.
Currently, when a woman gets pregnant many times medical expenses will be covered through the state’s Medicaid program.
If child support is needed from the father, as part of the father’s payments he will need to repay those birth costs, although there was a provision recently enacted that stopped the practice of recovering birth costs if the mother and father live together and are both supporting the child.
The amount typically charged for birth costs in Racine County is $1,600, according to Jeff Leggett, Racine County’s director of child support services.
In 2018, Racine County’s Child Support Office collected a total of $711,127 in birth costs, with 85 percent going to reimburse the Medicaid program, $604,458, and 15 percent staying with the county, $106,669, according to Leggett.
Leggett said if the collection of birth costs was eliminated, officials would have to figure out how to fill that budget hole in another way.
Evers’ proposed state budget includes some additional budgeted funds for child support agencies — $750,000 for fiscal year 2020 and $1.5 million for fiscal year 2021. However, the state budget does not include an estimate on how much revenue the state would lose not collecting the Medicaid birth costs.
Van Carson, who works for Racine Focus on Fathers, a fathers program ran through the George Bray Neighborhood YMCA, said, even though child support can be expensive and the birth costs add to that, he doesn’t think the birth cost collection should be eliminated.
“It’s expensive to be a human. It’s expensive. It comes with cost,” Carson said.
He said those people who have children need to understand that “recess is over,” and need to take responsibility and get a job.
Carson said he thinks it would be more fair if the father and mother had to repay the birth costs, not just the father.
As it should be.
Unfortunate – but true…..
