DNC ‘bullies’ tossed out of Milwaukee

Empower Wisconsin | Feb. 5,  2020  

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON —Milwaukee Public Schools boasts a comprehensive Bullying Prevention page on its website. Perhaps Milwaukee’s host committee for the 2020 Democratic National Convention could borrow a copy. 

The committee’s board of directors late Tuesday fired President Liz Gilbert and her chief of staff, Adam Alonzo, following complaints by senior women staffers of bullying and intimidation by Alonzo. They claimed Gilbert did nothing to stop it. Alonzo, the unidentified staffers wrote in a letter to the board, fostered a “toxic and unstable” culture. 

In a statement announcing the terminations, the board insisted it is “committed to an inclusive and supportive environment at the Host Committee, and we will work to ensure that all employees live up to these ideals.” 

After all, inclusive and supportive are what liberals like to think they are all about, unless, of course, they’re dealing with conservatives. And the committee does proclaim its mission is to “accelerate and highlight the current renaissance” of the Milwaukee area, as well as playing host and funding the “most accessible and Internationally inclusive Democratic National Convention ever.” 

The senior staffers who complained told the overseeing board that staff morale had plummeted while “fear of retribution and lack of trust” climbed. 

That kind of behavior certainly fits the description of bullying laid out in Milwaukee Public Schools policy. 

“Bullying involves unequal power such as size, age, group size, or popularity,” the school policy states. Or, in the case of the DNC Host Committee, abusing one’s position of authority in the workplace. 

MPS offers a  free KnowBullying app from SAMHSA (available for iPhone and Andro But maybe the Democrats want to stay away from that. Apps haven’t worked out so well for them this week in Iowa.
