Team Evers alum leads left soft money group

Empower Wisconsin | June 17, 2020

MADISON — You can learn a lot about someone from where he or she comes from. Sometimes you can learn as much or more from where they’re going. 

Such is the case with Nicole Safar, the former No. 3 in Gov. Tony Evers’ Department of of Health Services. 

We know Team Evers is a highly partisan group of left wingers. The mainstream media, of course, scoffs at that fact because its members also are highly partisan left wingers. 

Safer is one of the leftist of the left. 

Before joining DHS, Safer spent 14 years at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin in multiple roles including legal and policy advisory, lobbyist, political director and vice president of Public Affairs and Legal Advocacy. 

Recently she announced she was taking the executive director post at A Better Wisconsin Together. The Democrat soft money group spent at least a half million dollars against conservative Justice Daniel Kelly’s re-election during the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court race. A Better Wisconsin Together is funded by liberal groups like the Wisconsin Education Association Council and national Democratic Party groups.

It paid big cash money to the New Media Firm, a D.,C.-based “Progressive, Strategic, and Creative” media consultant for liberal political campaigns and issues. New Media is very tight with labor groups, including the Alliance for A Better Minnesota PAC, the Ohio Education Association, the National Education Association and SEIU Unified Healthcare Workers West. 

The liberal attack machine applauded itself in a press release after partnering with their “friends in the progressive and labor movements” in running an “aggressive and innovative campaign” to help Dane County liberal judge beat Kelly in the April Supreme Court election. 

“This race matters, not only because we helped unseat right-wing, Donald Trump-endorsed incumbent state Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly, but because as we all know, Wisconsin will be a battleground for the presidential race in 2020,” the firm said in its victory lap press release. “…(W)orking closely with our partners at A Better Wisconsin Together Political Fund, we prevailed.

Expect more big liberal money — some of it “dark” (oh, gasp) — to move through the left’s political shadows in this all-important election year. And the former No. 3 at DHS, Nicole Safar, will be among the former Team Evers members pimping liberal politics with the help of Wisconsin’s leftie puppet governor.
