In case you have not heard, Scott Walker’s campaign manager, Michael Grebe,  is suing the Madison School District.    Well, Grebe could not sue the district directly, since he does not live here and he is too busy selling off Northern WI.  In order to make the plans work, they had to find a stooge in […]
