Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he expects hundreds of scooters to soon be on the streets of his city after Gov. Tony Evers signed a new state law that legalizes scooters from companies like Lime or Bird.
There is an African proverb, “No fist is big enough to hide the sky.” It’s been a favorite of mine ever since the protesters in Madison, the public employee unions and the Democrats adopted the blue fist as their symbol. For one evening Wisconsin voters under a clear sky saw clearly enough that the recall madness had to end.
By declining to run for governor again, Barrett avoids a possible third election contest against Walker. Barrett lost to Walker in 2010 and in the recall election of 2012. Barrett lost in the Democratic primary for governor in 2002 to former Governor Jim Doyle.
