Even with the outcome known we fight.

Yes one again the Equality Project is going to the Racine Ethics Board. You know that is filled with Mayor Dickert supporters known pals who work/worked on his campaign

ethics 2

Both  Link Murphy and Doug Nicholson sit on the Ethics Board the Chair is Mary Wyant who does legal work (or her firm does) for the person we are bring up on Ethics Mary Osterman for actions she took as she sat and still sets on the City of Racine Ethics board.

The action was filed on Thursday 2/7/2014  and other then this email:

Mr. Clingman,

I am in receipt of your Ethics Complaint which was filed on 2-6-2014 with the City Clerk’s Office.  You do not need to make copies for the members.  I will be forwarding your complaint to the Chairman and she will advise me of how she wishes this to be handled.


Mind you I will be writing an Email to the char asking that she and Mr. Murphy and Nicholson recuse themselves from any thing to do with this since Oserman worked as well on Mayor Dickers Campaign and I will find it hard to think they can be unbiased

My guess is that they will not and I then will see what action I can take if only in the field of Public Opinion.  You know show the city of Racine how I feel the Mayor’s pals protect him.

After this was field with the City. Copies were also given to the Journal Times  WRJN and to my good friend The Mayor of the City of Racine.

My guess is even with the info we have the Ethics board will see nothing wrong.

I believe  folks in the City  of Racine,Racine County, and the State of Wisconsin may think that in Racine WI petty corruption rules the day.

This is Racine after all. You know the City takes down the Streetlights and the Mayor goes to Mexico on your dime. Does your ass hurt?

Working on getting the documents posted


Wait as part of this as you may know I asked for a list of documents that I should be able to receive via open records

The Email requesting the records

Good Morning

1) A list of all Paid Sponsors of Belle City TV from 1/1/13 to 12/1/13 
and the amount charged
2) The amount of money charged to  Ms Mary Osterman for her sponsorship 
packages for "advertising" of her store Copasetic
    located in Racine WI.
3) Copies of any contracts or Emails between Belle City TV and Ms.

4) The name of the person clearing the Viacom synicated programing 
running on Belle City TV over the last month
5) a list of all Racine area producers  as of 1/3/13

I understand that a reasonable charge maybe incurred if so I need to be

Note my Follow up to the City of Racine and the answer given and the dates


Its now 2/7/14

A letter to the D.A. about the lack of Records or cost for them is being written. If I can I will be asking for sanctions.

My question is what is the City trying to hide?

Racine Its got to be the Water: Commetry

I am so confused.  How many in Racine and not only live in 2014 but exist in a world that they have no clue about.

Maybe I am unique, I am after all a male born in the USA, having gone to School in Madison Wisconsin and U.W. Madison the best education on Earth, and serving in the US Army and Army Reserve gave me a look at how the world works, and My Drinking,Divorce, dealing with the State of Wisconsin Justice system, taught me about the hard world we live in.

Now via the internet know and interact with others around the world from Rich to Poor-Black-White-Yellow-Brown, understand how others around the world think and act the way they do.

The internet also allowing me to read information and understand more.

Truly, I am not unique nor am a a genius of any sort, I am just a guy but a guy so much farther ahead then those who act like the real world does not exist in the bubble called Racine.

In this world we have no crime in the City of Racine, we have no unemployment because neither have happened to them. When they hear of others who may think that crime or Jobs might be an issue, the thought is no issues its a perception we can trust our leaders (do they not have nice hair?)

In this world all houses are looking great and we have no homeless issues for HALO takes them all in we do not really have homeless families living in Cars.

We could go on with the world of Unicorns they see Racine from Drugs are not a huge issue, that causes Death not only in Racine but on the  long road here many being killed being young kids. That folks from “Chicago” are begging to move to Racine that this will make Racine boom!

Then why bother?  Thing is will be the wake up call coming when their world comes to an end, and it is.

The Racine area is not sustainable and the cute Meatless Monday’s or not allowing Sons to play War Games will not help.  See when things truly go to hell and the Downtown of Racine is gone  and both the City and Racine Tax base cant keep even basic service intact. Hope they are ready for the world of Looting and Pillage that will be knocking
