15th Aldermanic Candidate Hopeful Monique Taylor Aligned With Right Wing Organization Center For Responsible Government (CRG)
FROM KINGFISHMKE.COM…. The left side sees Republican Gov. Scott Walker as the devil. The right side sees the same in President Barack Obama. But there is one thing they can agree on: Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has got to go. “What we have here is people with a common cause, that feel that together we are strong,” community organizer Tory Lowe, tells Wisconsin Reporter. “That kind of common ground doesn’t happen all the time, and that’s a testament to how (Chisholm) is running his office.” As Wisconsin Reporter first reported, Lowe and fellow community organizer Monique Taylor met Monday night with Orville Seymer, field director of Citizens for Responsible Government, one of the state’s most successful conservative action organizations. Seymer and CRG’s Chris Kliesmet detailed the mechanism of recall, with the leaders looking to establish a Recall John Chisholm exploratory committee as soon as next week. CRG certainly knows the ropes of Wisconsin recall. The conservative organization is perhaps best known for its successful recall of former Milwaukee County Executive Tom Ament, who was caught in a public pension scandal in 2002. Rather than face recall voters, Ament retired, remaining eligible to collect his county pension. Lowe and Taylor scheduled a meeting tonight at 5:30 at the Wisconsin African American Women’s Center in Milwaukee with representatives from the NAACP,Occupy Milwaukee, the League of Young Voters and other liberal organizations to talk about the formation of a recall campaign. “We want to make sure we get our ground troops and energy together if we want to put it all together to have a successful recall election,” Lowe said. It is a cause of admittedly strange bedfellows, a fledgling movement of people who have previously struggled to trust each other in racially divided Milwaukee – a group that includes citizens who worked hard to recall Walker, and others vehemently opposed to that unprecedented campaign. In fact, Lowe says, community organizers want to learn from the lessons of the failed 2012 effort to oust Walker. CRG lays claim to assisting some 30 grassroots recall efforts, all conservative-led campaigns. Seymer said any campaign to remove Chisholm must be a team effort. “Obviously we have black liberals and white conservatives working on this,” he said. “We have to look at our main goal, which is to remove John Chisholm.” It’s a cause with different motivations for recalling the Democrat district attorney. Conservatives are frustrated, many furious, with the seemingly endless, secret John Doe investigations into conservatives led by Chisholm’s office. They feel that the probes are nothing more than political witch hunts, and a prosecutorial abuse of power. Black community leaders like Lowe and Taylor are outraged with what they see as Milwaukee’s criminal justice system failing black victims. Among the more high-profile cases was Chisholm’s decision not to file charges against the three men involved in the December 2012 death of Corey Stingley. According to the official account, the 16-year-old was attempting to steal alcohol at a West Allis convenience store when he was detained by three men. Video from the store’s camera shows Stingley leave his backpack and the alcohol with the clerk, grab his debit card from […]Feb 7th, 2014 by Press Release
