Progress Illinois, a website that provides quality news and information about Illinois politics from a progressive perspective, is currently running on a shoestring budget and could be forced to shut down completely unless enough people are able to donate enough money in order to keep Progress Illinois online and operating. Currently, Progress Illinois has enough funds to continue operating for the next month or so.
While Progress Illinois is making attempts to establish a fundraising network, consisting of fundraising campaigns, a formal board to assist with fundraising, and an annual fundraising gala, to stay online and operating in the long term, they need all the help they can get. While I don’t have the means to donate money to Progress Illinois or otherwise assist with their fundraising efforts beyond writing this blog post, if you wish to donate money to Progress Illinois or otherwise help with Progress Illinois’s fundraising efforts, please contact Arica Flowers at Arica@ProgressIllinois.com.
Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW) Chairman Mike Tate and the rest of the incompetent DPW leadership team has been caught red-handed scrubbing entire sections of the DPW’s website.
This page is supposed to contain either the DPW constitution or a link to it. Instead, it contains an error message reading, “We’re sorry, the page you were looking for could not be located. Please double check the URL”.
This page is supposed to contain information about various caucuses within the DPW. Instead, it also contains an error message reading, “We’re sorry, the page you were looking for could not be located. Please double check the URL”.
So, why is the Democratic Party of Wisconsin scrubbing entire pages of their website? My guess is that they’re so afraid of a progressive takeover of the DPW (there is an attempt at a progressive takeover of the party underway), they’re resorting to dirty tricks to keep people in the dark about how they operate, which has resulted in Wisconsin Democrats having suffered so many losses in the past six years to the point that they’re virtually irrelevant below the federal level in presidential election years.
In the meantime, you can like the Facebook page calling for DPW Chairman Mike Tate’s ouster here, you can tell the Democratic leadership in Wisconsin what you think of their losing ways here, and you can learn more about an event, scheduled for 3 P.M. CST Sunday in Madison, Wisconsin, that is being organized by people involved in the progressive takeover attempt here.
