On the eve of the August primary in Wisconsin, the November presidential election is getting lots of attention in the state...because of who's been added to the Republican ticket.

 

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke to thousands of supporters in Waukesha Sunday night...bringing running mate Paul Ryan with him. Congressman Ryan praised other Republican office-holders from the state, as people who keep their promises.

 

Ryan says Republicans led by Governor Scott Walker fixed the problems in Madison, and he expects the party will fix Washington.

Police procedures in the investigation of a La Crosse drug death are under fire.

The judge in the Cain Moss murder case is being asked not to allow evidence from some statements Moss made last year, when he was charged with the overdose death of Tony Du Charme. Police found Du Charme's body near Red Cloud Park, after speaking with suspects and witnesses. Police Lieutenant Matt Malott and Moss's defense attorney argued back and forth in court today about whether Moss seemed to be on drugs when he was questioned, and whether officers ignored his requests for a lawyer. No trial date has been set for Cain Moss. Judge Todd Bjerke says he will rule by the end of August on whether Moss's statements are admissible.

Neuman Gets South Carolina Support

Written by

As Wisconinites prepare for another election next week, outside eyes are watching like they did in the governor's recall election. This time it's South Carolina Senator, Jim DeMint. Now, he has his eyes on the hotly contested senate race....like he did when Ron Johnson ran 2 years ago.

And as he did for the Republican Johnson, who beat out Russ Feingold in 2010, DeMint has given his support to Republican, Mark Neuman.

Graffiti Artist May Avoid La Crosse County Trial

Written by

A suspected graffiti artist in La Crosse County could enter a negotiated plea next month...

A plea hearing is planned on September 20th for Bryant Koscianski of Onalaska. He was arrested in early July on charges of spray-painting dozens of graffiti symbols around La Crosse. A police search of Koscianski's home uncovered over 100 cans of spray paint, and a billboard where he apparently practiced graffiti technique. He's also facing charges in Minnesota of causing about a million dollars in damage to railroad equipment sprayed with graffiti.

District Allows Boy Scouts To Rent......Is It Ok

Written by

The Boy Scouts of America have reaffirmed its policy of excluding gays. But does that have an impact on renting school buildings where there are discrimination policy's in place?

La Crosse School Superintendent, Randy Nelson, says the Boy Scouts do rent buildings from the district for different events. But what about their policy against those that discriminate?

Nelson says after years of court cases nationwide.....they have to follow in line with renting to organizations like the Boys and Girls Clubs and Parks and Recreation. The Scouts’ say that the exclusion policy is absolutely the best policy for the 102 year old organization.

Pollsters Need More Training

Written by

Foul play or confusion? Hundreds of voters called a hotline to report voter issues at the Scott Walker recall vote. Some voters said they were asked for photo identification at the voting booth, even though Wisconsin recently struck down a law that would have made it necessary. And some college students felt they were treated unfairly. The solution?

Andrea Kaminsky heads the state's League of Women Voters. Some of the problems they saw were the same ones identified by Republicans in the state Senate election in Racine County where a recount took place. But unlike the GOP, the League does not say that voter fraud might have been committed.
