Wisconsin Assembly set to vote on three-pronged campaign finance bill

With a goal to significantly modify the state campaign finance laws, Republicans have introduced a three-part bill to the Wisconsin State Legislature on which the Assembly is scheduled to vote Tuesday. Despite receiving much criticism from Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, have laid out a comprehensive plan that would enable political action committees to spend an unlimited amount of money on campaigns and allow donors to give unlimited amounts of money to campaign committees. While the bill mainly focuses on tweaking state campaign finance laws, the piece of legislation also exonerates politicians from John Doe corruption investigations, according to a Common Cause press release.

‘It’s Always Sunny’ finds lasting comic success where others fail

Sustainability is one of the key elements of any television show. For comedies, it may be the most important element. Once a show stops being funny, it’s (normally) cancelled. Of course, the longer a show runs, the less likely it is to be cancelled regardless of quality (looking at you, “Family Guy”). And, obviously, the longer a comedy runs, the harder it is to come up with new, unique situations and the easier it is to fall back on what worked before. Rarely do you find a show that does not stagnate—even “Seinfeld” was not as good at the end. Yet, “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”—which borrows a lot from “Seinfeld”—is atop the short list of shows you still have to watch.
