More Sunlight On The WMC

The Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the state's largest business lobby, just can't stay out of the headlines.

The most recent installment: a solid piece in the Madison Capital Times by editor emeritus Dave Zweifel about the group's campaign to unseat State Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler.

Paul Soglin has been hitting those same themes, while in Milwaukee, One Wisconsin Now is on the case, too,

And I've been cataloguing the WMC's leadership, if you can call it that, in trying to sink the Great Lakes Compact.

References to Soglin, and One Wisconsin Now's recent efforts are in a single posting, here.

Of note in the Zweifel posting, in the comment section, are indications that some Wisconsin customers and consumers are thinking twice about buying from WMC member companies.

Pushback against the WMC has been a long time coming, and for the group's members and their clout, financial consequences would be more than mere food for thought.
