    We all remember former Delegate and Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jeff Frederick as a barely coherent right-winger who could always be counted upon to do or say something to embarrass his party, and who was drummed out of power by Bob McDonnell and party elite for that very reason.

DNC Chair Kaine on the Wisconsin Legislature’s Vote to Take Away Public Workers’ Collective Bargaining Rights

  • by

 Washington, DC – Last night, without public notice, Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate used extraordinary parliamentary maneuvers to separate a bill that takes away public workers’ bargaining rights in that state from related budgetary measures, enabling them to pass that bill solely with Republican votes.
