Sean Duffy and his demographic bubble world

Weston is located in Marathon County, which has the largest percentage of Hmong population outside of Milwaukee County.

To Be Both Midwestern and Hmong.  (The Atlantic, 6/3/2016)
Decades after they fought for the U.S. and took refuge in Wisconsin, immigrants and their children still struggle for acceptance.

Marathon County Leader Suspended For Participating In Hmong Rally.  (Wisconsin Public Radio, 7/20/2016)
The Marathon County Board of Supervisors voted 30-5 to suspend Brad Karger was suspected 30 days without pay.  "I'm not being investigated for incompetence, not being investigated for any illegal conduct, not being investigated for any immoral behavior," Karger said. "What I am being investigated for, and apparently being suspended for, is taking a public position in support of justice for a 16-year-old Marathon County resident that I never met."

Perhaps Duffy should focus on his own district for a change, rather than mouthing off -- anything to get his name and face in the news -- as he gears up to challenge Tammy Baldwin in 2018.
