Quotes

"The arguments tend to be black and white, but there are so many shades of grey."
"We try to avoid them, because most don't have revenue," Groh said. "A lot of them are shell reverse merger takeovers.

"In the 1980’s, after the Republican and Democrat Parties took control of presidential debates with the formation of their Commission on Presidential Debates, the League of Women Voters, who had traditionally organized and moderated the debates, withdrew their participation, saying 'the demands of the two campaign organizations (Republican and Democrat Parties) would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter.'"
She called the case "one of the most challenging and rewarding. It went on and on ... OK, these resources have to be shared. What role does the state play in deciding? We took timber, deer, fish. Fish were the single most contentious. I had no idea how the people of Wisconsin cared."
