Meet climate denier and congressional candidate Tom Tiffany

In Congressional Campaign Launch, Tiffany Takes A Dig At Democrats.  (Wisconsin Public Radio, 9/10/2019)
In his time in the Legislature, Tiffany was a strong advocate in the state's push to bring the Gogebic Taconite mining company to northern Wisconsin. He led a successful effort to change Wisconsin’s environmental laws in order to ease the path for the company to create a iron mine in northern Wisconsin. The project became a lightning rod for environmentalists and the subject of multiple legal challenges. The company ultimately pulled out of Wisconsin in 2015 without completing the mine. 
In a statement, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin referred to Tiffany as "Toxic Tom Tiffany," a reference to the project, and said he has a "record of putting corporate special interests before the health and well-being of his constituents."

We don't want Tom Terrific to represent Wisconsin in Congress:
Tiffany's and Jarchow's Bad Defense of Their Pro-Polluter Policies.  (Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, 1/6/2017)
In a recent column in the Wisconsin State Farmer by Senator Tom Tiffany and Representative Adam Jarchow, the Republican legislators tried to turn their anti-environmental records into badges of honor. 
“We have the audacity to take on the environmental left,” they said. 
What they really mean is they’ve never met a polluter they didn’t like. They back every frac-sand mining operation and every factory farm in the state. Sen. Tiffany himself played a nasty role in the elimination of the science bureau at the DNR, and he was the l ead author of a budget amendment that limited local communities’ ability to protect water quality in shoreland areas, an amendment that Jarchow also supported. Now they vow to make it even easier for polluters in Wisconsin, which is the last thing we need.

Veteran, Spencer Zimmerman, announces campaign to replace Duffy in Congress.  (WJFW, 8/28/2019)
According to a statement, Zimmeran will base his party affiliation on who the eventual Democratic Presidential nominee is and whether the "nomination process has been conducted fairly." 
Recently, Zimmerman received 5.5% of votes [243 votes] in the 2019 Democratic primary for Wisconsin Assembly District 64 which covers parts of Kenosha Co. and Racine Co. 
Zimmerman also ran unsuccessfully in the Republican primary for Secretary of State in 2018.  [28.6% of the votes in the Republican primary]
Since 2010, Zimmerman has campaigned as a Republican for multiple Wisconsin Assembly seats and a Nebraska Senate seat.  [Special Republican primary for State Assembly District 42 on May 15, 2018:  118 votes (5.5%); finished 4th out of 4.  Special Republican primarhy for State Senate District 58 on December 156, 2017:  37 votes (1.2%); finished 4th out of 4.]

Congressman Sean Duffy to resign in September, cites family reasons.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 8/27/2019)
So far, no candidates have come forward expressing their intention to run in a deeply red district that would present a formidable challenge for any Democrat. UW-Madison political science professor Barry Burden said “it’s not impossible” for a Democrat to win, but that structural factors, particularly the way the district was drawn in 2011, favor Republicans.

Maybe you should read this article, Mike.

The Constitution Says ‘Bribery’ Is Impeachable. What Does That Mean?  (Lawfare, 10/3/2019)
In fact, Trump’s conduct almost certainly satisfies the modern statutory standard for bribery. As Randall Eliason has explained, a quid pro quo “need not be stated in express terms; corrupt actors are seldom so clumsy, and the law may not be evaded through winks and nods.” We have little doubt that a prosecutor would be able to establish a quid pro quo based on what was said on the call and the surrounding facts and context. (As an aside, Trump’s conduct also likely qualifies as extortion. As James Lindgren has explained at length, historically there has been a substantial overlap between the concepts of extortion and bribery, and around the time of the Founding, the terms were often used to describe the same conduct.)

In a statement on the trip, Dr. Alston noted: “The State health department had no idea of how many households exist in these conditions, despite the grave health consequences. Nor did they have any plan to find out, or devise a plan to do something about it. But since the great majority of white folks live in the cities, which are well served by government-built and maintained sewerage systems, and most of the rural folks in areas like Lowndes County, are black, the problem doesn’t appear on the political or governmental radar screen.”
