Montgomery, Alabama – On Tuesday, Doug Jones (D) was projected the winner for the U.S. Senate defeating Roy Moore (R). Jones made his victory speech and gave credit to a diverse voter turn out. According to the Washington Post exit polls, 92% of Black men, 97% of Black women, 23% of White men and 32% of White women voted for Jones. While 74% White men and 65% of White women including 7% of Black men and 3% of Black women voted for Moore.
Jones made history in Alabama and many GOP elected public officials campaigned against Moore who allegedly liked to date young teenage girls. Trump’s endorsement didn’t even help Moore.

State Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Gordon Hintz Removed Representative Josh Zepnick From Committees Without Due Process

Hintz, a Democrat requested for Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to remove Democrat State Representative Josh Zepnick from committees without due process indicating how corrupt the leadership in the Democratic Party seemed to be in the State legislature.

Madison, WI – State Representative Josh Zepnick (D-Milw.) has apparently been removed from serving in committees due to a request by Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh), according to Assembly Speaker Robin J. Vos (R-Rochester). Representative Hintz had requested for Vos to removed Rep. Zepnick from all the committees. Currently, Rep. Zepnick’s home page in the State Assembly website shows no committee assignments.
Hintz apparently without due process is trying to pressure Zepnick to resign after allegations of inappropriate kissing and touching were made by two women who did not want to be identified. Zepnick has confirmed that the women have not confronted him and have not filed any complaints against him. Who are these women? In many cases of alleged sexual harassment and assault by public elected officials whether Democrat or Republican, female victims have come forward publicly and have faced the aggressor.
But, Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) has learned that Zepnick broke from the corrupt ranks of the Democratic Party and pressure was placed to get Zepnick to resign. Rep. Zepnick has confirmed that he will not resign and is expected to seek re-election as a card carrying Democrat.
Zepnick has opposed anti-immigrant legislation by the Republican controlled Assembly.

For the record, …both Democrats and Republicans are running for cover in relation to sexual harrasment. At the State Assembly many Republicans knew about former State Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer (R-Waukesha) drunkness and inappropriate sexual behavior, who was convicted in 2014 for 4th-degree sexual assault and sentenced to five months in jail long before the “Diana Robertson” issue became public, yet the Republicans did nothing. At the federal level, sexual abuse by members of Congress has been known for a long time…Why hasn’t the Republicans and Democrats done anything against sexual harrasment until now? Because both Democrats and Republicans, including Trump, the President are equally complicit and corrupt.

Rep. Josh Zepnick released the following statement on December 1st, “As a recovering alcoholic, I have confronted and apologized for many mistakes I made during my years of irresponsible drinking.
While I have no recollection of these alleged incidents, there is never an excuse for inappropriate behavior.
I take the claims seriously and respect the feelings of the women involved. I apologize to both women for my actions and for any distress that I may have caused.
My life is back on track and I’ve been sober for over 2 years. I will not be resigning and I will continue to work hard on behalf of my constituents.”

American Sewer Services, Inc. Fired Worker For KKK Hate Speech Decal At City of Milwaukee Worksite

Sewer and street repair company fired two employees, according to a letter sent to City of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Milwaukee, WI – On Monday, Dennis Biondich, the owner of American Sewer Services, Inc. (ASS) from Rubicon confirmed in a letter sent to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett that several employees had been terminated after two incidents that cause public outrage for displaying a Confederate flag including a KKK decal at a city worksite at N. 25th Street and W. Wells and an earlier incident where three workers were open carrying handguns and one of them brandishing his handgun at N. 19th Street and W. Meinecke Ave. Biondich admitted that an employee displaying the KKK decal in his cooler was hate speech and the second employee who was brandishing a handgun including two others who had handguns were legally carrying a weapon at a worksite.
The City of Milwaukee has a zero tolerance for City employees and contractors from carrying any type of weapon while on the job for the City, according to the City’s Firearms and Dangerous Weapons prohibition. Last week, during a Common Council Public Works hearing, Alderman Bob Donovan exposed that some City employees had told him that they do carry conceal weapons while on the job violating the prohibition policy.
Multiple unions and organizations gathered at City Hall on Monday to speak against an employee working for ASS that had displayed a Confederate flag and a KKK decal in his cooler. Jacob Flom, Chair for the Young Workers Committee stated, “No worker can be both a unionist and a fascist, White supremacists are the enemy of organized labor and the entire multinational working class. The KKK is a White supremacist terrorist group responsible for killing Afrcan-Americans, LBGTQ people, trade unionists and others. Unions stand for economic and social justice and we condemn and actively fight against White supremacy and fascism in the workplace and society.”
“Symbols of hate and division have no place at the worksite. The KKK is an abhorrent organization that fosters hate and violence and it is shocking that someone would feel it is okay to display support for White supremacy on the job. Likewise, the Confederate flag is not the flag that represents liberty and justice for all,” said Pam Fendt, President of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council.

Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee Virtually Got Rid Of Legal Lean/Synthetic Pot From Community Before Common Council Outlawed Sales

The Milwaukee Common Council made it illegal to sell Legal Lean (synthetic pot) and Hy-Tech Syrup in the City of Milwaukee just one year and a half after the Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee began their campaign to stop the sale at local grocery and gas station stores.

Milwaukee, WI – On Saturday, Darryl Farmer, the General for the Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee (OBPM) confirmed in his Facebook account, that “FOR THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF THE ORIGINAL BLACK PANTHERS OF MILWAUKEE HAVE VIRTUALLY RID THE MILWAUKEE COMMUNITY OF LEGAL LEAN AND HY-TECH SYRUP! THE COMMON COUNCIL MADE IT ILLEGAL TO SELL IN THE CITY!! IF THE KING IS WRONG, PROVE ME WRONG!! HMMMMMMMM…….The stores, gas stations and other businesses that sold legal lean (like synthetic pot) will tell you they stopped because of The Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee!!” The OBPM had put pressure on the Common Council to make Legal Lean illegal, but haven’t yet been recognized for their efforts to help stop local grocery and gas station stores from selling it. The OBPM would visit the stores while video recording their visits and putting pressure on store operators to stop selling the synthetic pot to kids and the public. Although, Alderman Khalif J. Rainey has failed to acknowledge the OBPM efforts that helped stop the sale of Legal Lean, Farmer on the other hand is very outspoken about their success by taking credit with his group in helping to get rid of the synthetic pot in their community.
On Friday, Alderman Rainey from the 7th Aldermanic District released the following press release, A city news event hosted yesterday outlined the next steps in the city’s legal proceedings involving the former Foodtown Mini Mart on Hopkins St., located in the 7th Aldermanic District.
The city took ownership of the location after shutting down the store as a public nuisance for selling a potentially deadly form of synthetic marijuana called K-2.
A similar synthetic drug scourge on city neighborhoods – a mood-enhancing, over-the-counter drink sometimes called “Legal Lean” that is targeted toward kids – is now illegal after legislation I sponsored was approved by the Common Council in June. These synthetic drugs prey on our youth and send them on a downward spiral of a life consumed by drug addiction.According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, two substances commonly used in Legal Lean are kratom, also known as herbal speedball (it provides an opioid-like effect), and kava, also known as an intoxicating pepper (it provides users a feeling of sedation and muscle weakness).
My legislation (Council File #170238) makes it illegal to use, possess or sell those two herbal depressants in the City of Milwaukee. Our city is now following other large cities and nations in seeking to prevent products like Legal Lean from reaching kids. In fact, these herbs are considered controlled substances in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
