Daily Bread for 12.16.21: Michael Rebecca

Good morning.

Thursday in Whitewater will be mostly sunny, with strong winds subsiding, and a high of 36.  Sunrise is 7:19 AM and sunset 4:22 PM for 9h 02m 17s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing gibbous with 93.9% of its visible disk illuminated.

Whitewater’s Community Development Authority meets at 5:30 PM.

 On this day in 1773, members of the Sons of Liberty disguised as Mohawk Indians dump hundreds of crates of tea into Boston harbor as a protest against the Tea Act.

Patrick Marley reports Gableman touts Kleefisch’s run for governor, asks for support in keeping his election review going:

Michael Gableman talked up his review of the 2020 election at a Republican event over the weekend, telling the crowd he wouldn’t back down from Democrats and tipping his hand about his preferences in GOP primaries.

The former state Supreme Court justice at times has tried to portray himself as impartial and at others sought to stir up the Republican base. He’s on deck to speak at another Republican event later this month.

During an appearance Sunday in Beloit, Gableman appeared alongside former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and touted her bid for governor. That could put him in an awkward position if Marine veteran Kevin Nicholson decides to run for governor because Gableman serves on the advisory board for Nicholson’s political organization, the No Better Friend Corp.

The report doesn’t say whether Gableman offered Kleefisch a box of chocolates, but there’s time until Valentine’s Day (1 month, 29 days, to be precise).  Harry & David (‘your destination for a gourmet gift delivery that is sure to delight’) accepts all major credit cards.
