On Monday’s Steve Scaffidi show on WTMJ, RightWisconsin Editor James Wigderson talked about the debate between Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers and Governor Scott Walker from Friday night and the plagiarism in Evers’ education budgets submitted by his department to the state.
“What’s interesting to me is how Evers is not holding anyone accountable in his agency,” Wigderson said. “It’s kind of the way Evers works. He doesn’t hold schools accountable when they’re failing. He doesn’t hold his own staff accountable when they do things that are wrong. And that would be the kind of governor he would be.”
Wigderson compared Evers and Walker on holding people accountable.
“We have a governor right now that has been criticized for hanging onto people for too long,” Wigderson said. “Well, imagine what Tony Evers is going to be like. Tony Evers couldn’t even fire a teacher that was watching porn in the classroom.”
Wigderson also offered his opinion of Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s decision to be at a Bon Iver concert supporting her candidacy rather than watching the Milwaukee Brewers like the rest of the state.
“It’s suggests socialism has failed,” Wigderson said. “Because we had much better music when we paid for it, our generation did.”
But Baldwin is not just relying on Bon Iver for star power. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) was in Wisconsin on Monday and former President Barack Obama is coming Friday. “The one person that is actually out there touring that is not going to come to Wisconsin is Hilary Clinton,” Wigderson said. “Let’s all be shocked by that.”
Scaffidi and Wigderson also took the opportunity to discuss Randy Bryce, the Democratic candidate in Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district, and his ridiculous comparison of himself to civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
“He tried to defend himself by comparing himself to John Lewis, the civil rights leader, congressman,” Wigderson said. “John Lewis has been arrested for, let’s be fair, approximately 40 times according to his official biography. But those arrests were for fighting for civil rights. They weren’t for drunk driving, not showing up in court, driving with a suspended license, failing to appear in court after being arrested for driving with a suspended license.”
“We can run down the list. Randy Bryce’s arrest record compared to John Lewis’ arrest record,” Wigderson said. “Randy Bryce is no John Lewis.”
