The Democratic Challenger: Jose Guzman
Milwaukee candidate speaks up, hits law for defending rape victims. (Uppity Wisconsin, 9/2/2008)
Excerpt: The phantom southside Milwaukee candidate for state assembly, José Guzmán, is at last revealing himself contending with his recruitment by the political operative, Tom Reynolds, the notorious former state senator known for his anti-Catholic views and often bizarre political behavior.
