Republicans just can't help themselves. They love meddling in Milwaukee's affairs. That's why they:
* Take away the city's residency rule for its public employees (but take them away for all local governments in the state to mask the party's real focus for the state's largest city).
* Take away money from public schools in the city, then complain when they only perform slightly better than the private voucher schools that have received tens of millions of taxpayer dollars.
* Swipe tens of millions of dollars intended to help the city deal with thousands of boarded up residential homes, whose owners were thrown out thanks to the Great Recession's mortgage meltdown.
* Seize most power from the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors and invest it in a strongman county executive who will answer to almost no one. What could possibly go wrong?
