I heard Belling give, what sounded like to me, another candidate endorsement. Listen to today's podcast and I think you will get the picture

Given the nonsense JEANNE TARANTINO said under oath, this photo is ironic and should also be used on Jeanne's political epitaph.

The People on the board of the Waukesha Co Republican Party are in Leadership roles and really should not be this vocal about any/all of the candidates. Period. One other thing, re-read the half of the story that was reported by bice. Please be intelligent enough to know the difference of one expressing ones feelings to her bosses boss and "actually filling" charges/accusations!!! If indeed there were "charges" made there would have been a lot more than bice and belling breaking this story and it would have happened a long time ago! That would have included a lawsuit filed in court and a lot more than "just feelings" being aired during an exhusting divorce deposition that lasted all day A bunch of jealous imuture infighting ignorant people! I say grow up and show some real Leadership...the kind the the RNC Chairman just wrote about, the Govorner, the Lt. Gov all would like to see within the party.
