According to the Wisconsin State Journal:
Jeff Kaminiski, president of United Steelworkers Local 2006, said this week he called the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Madison office and asked that Walker be fined.
“Gov. Walker’s violations send the wrong message to anyone trying to follow the rules and come home safe at the end of the day,” Kaminski said in a statement. “Safety is the backbone of the union movement. We want all workers to come home safe at the end of the day. We can’t have an example like this playing statewide.”
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is nominating Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson to serve as a representative to the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly that begins Tuesday.
The Oshkosh Republican’s name was among a slate of presidential nominations announced Friday afternoon.
In an interview set to air Monday night, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer unloaded on President Barack Obama, telling radio host Hugh Hewitt that Obama is “clearly a narcissist” and “lives in a cocoon surrounded by sycophants.”
“But let me just say as a layman, without invoking any expertise, Obama is clearly a narcissist in the non-scientific use of the word,” said Krauthammer. “He is so self-involved, you see it from his rise. Here’s a man who says I don’t to theater, you know, I don’t do that. Well, his whole run in 2008 was theater, including the Roman, the Greek columns that he had around him at his speech at the convention in Denver.
CHICAGO (AP) - In a stunningly fast decision, a federal appeals court in Chicago reinstated Wisconsin’s voter photo identification law on Friday - just hours after three Republican-appointed judges heard arguments on reactivating the hotly debated law in time for the November election.
In a brief order, a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago said, “The State of Wisconsin may, if it wishes … enforce the photo ID requirement in this November’s elections.”

Party Column: “We need to get the truth out”
Republican Party of Wisconsin
In just two months, Wisconsin voters will head to the polls to decide the future of our state. We’ve made a lot of progress over the last four years, and this election will be our most important yet - we’ve come too far to move backward now.
As you know, our Republican ticket is strong from the top on down. Led by Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch, we’ve shown that our state can truly have a government that works for the taxpayers, not against them.
But while our record speaks for itself, we can’t just stand by our record alone - we must be on the ground spreading the message to voters firsthand. That’s why we need your help right away.
The Democrats are actively working against us, and they won’t stop until Election Day. In fact, they’ve been working hard to put expensive ballot referendums to a vote this November in many counties and municipalities across the state. They don’t have a record to run on, so they would rather use tricks like this to turn out the Democratic vote. Not only is this a waste of taxpayer money, but it’s a desperate attempt to turn out their liberal base.
We can’t let this happen. We need to have our voices heard, and it’s our job to educate voters with the facts. As you know, Governor Walker and the Republican team are counting on our grassroots organization to make the difference in this election.
If Democrats have their way, our positive, pro-growth agenda would be halted. But together, we can be stronger because I know we have a winning message. In these last few weeks, let’s work to educate voters, build support door-to-door, and ultimately help get out the vote that will lead us to victory. It’s up to us - visit wisgop.org to make an impact today.
The power of social media is on full display in Wisconsin as Lt Governor Rebecca Kleefisch took to Twitter on Wednesday, asking for Mary Burke to denounce the commnents made by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The often controversial Congresswoman from Florida told Wisconsin reporters that “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”
With an “I told you so” attitude, Rep. Paul Ryan, the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee, slammed the “catastrophically weak foreign policy” of President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and warned that her election in 2016 would just mean Obama-Clinton, Part III.
While in Milwaukee to tout his book, The Way Forward, Renewing the American Idea, he told Secrets on Monday that the foreign policy “failures” at Obama’s feet prove that he and Mitt Romney were correct in their criticism of Obama during the election.
Unlike her colleagues at the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, on Tuesday night, actually dug into the finer points behind the big bombshells revealed in the IRS scandal this week.
Invited on Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to discuss the revelations of a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer confirming the existence of Lois Lerner’s “missing” e-mails and the IRS’s destruction of her Blackberry (stories the networks through Wednesday morning have yet to touch) Attkisson also did a great job of explaining the conflict of interest going on at the DOJ.
