Who's Demonstrating? Evers Keeps It Secret

There may--or may not--be several thousand demonstrators in Madistan this weekend over the Roe decision.

But you'll never know who they are.

...On Saturday, an even larger rally is expected to bring out 20,000 to 30,000 people, again at the State Street area of the Capitol, Litzkow said. Police are expected in larger than usual numbers between 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

“Expect traffic delays in the downtown area,” the Capitol Police officer warned.

Another rally is scheduled for Sunday at and near the Capitol.

Litzkow referred Empower Wisconsin’s questions to the Department of Administration.

A Department of Administration spokeswoman said she would provide the names of the groups and individuals on the permits and other information, but then advised Empower Wisconsin to file an open records request (a process that can take months to complete with the Evers administration). She did not respond to a follow-up email.

A Madison Police Department spokeswoman did not respond to multiple messages....

Given the notably small crowds demonstrating in front of SCOTUS' members houses and at the Fed courthouse in Milwaukee last weekend, the Madistan events may turn out to be just a zit on the butt of an elephant.

What's far more interesting is the Evers secrecy.  We know that the babykiller crowd are all allies of Evers, which is the best reason for him to keep it a secret, and that's most likely why the silence.
