HAND-CURATED POSTS FROM THE WISCONSIN BLOGOSPHERE (AND SOMETIMES POINTS BEYOND)
Wisconsin is one of four states (along with Illinois, Kentucky, and Oregon) that prohibits bail bondsmen. So bail must be paid either in cash, with a registered check, cashier’s check or credit card. In fact, Donna Kuchler, a Wisconsin criminal defense attorney based in Waukesha, said police aren’t allowed to insist on cash.
“I would be suspicious of why they would do that,” Kuchler says. “I had a case last year in Fond du Lac County where they tried to say my client could only pay in cash. My guess is that they probably intended to do the same thing that happened here. We brought a cashier’s check anyway, and they knew they had to accept it.”
The analysis challenges the narratives both sides have been telling about the other.It found that most of the out-of-state money — and most of the big-dollar contributions — have gone to Republican candidates and allied groups, while donations to Democrats and unions’ political action committees have come overwhelmingly from within Wisconsin.
Everyone says that.

Mandy Rennhack said her autistic son was put into a plywood 5 by 7 foot box March 27. She was concerned about the amount of time he was in the box and does not want the school to use the box. Rennhack’s son has Asperger’s syndrome, a disorder that’s part of the autism spectrum which affects development in children. Records show Rennhack’s son was in the room 80 minutes.
