Your Right to Know

As founder of We the Irrelevant, a website that tracks how well (or poorly) the actions of legislators match up with what the public has asked them to do, I have sent multiple open records requests to Wisconsin legislators on a variety of controversial initiatives.

“Oh, Matthew!” my mom said. “There you are. I didn’t see you there, behind the couch.”

“Hi, Mom,” I said. “Hadley, go brush your teeth and hop into bed, okay?”
