Look out! Technology and politics have converged.
We just noticed (Hat tip to Wispolitics.com!) that Rep. Robin Vos, R-Racine, is tweeting on the job.
Greg Bump of Wispolitics reports that Vos, a member of the beleaguered Republican minority on the Legislature's powerful Joint Finance Committee, "is sending out messages from his Twitter account to give followers updates on the JFC action." It is Joint Finance, remember, that will vote on the RTA later today...
Bump wrote at 4:17 p.m. yesterday: "Vos just sent out two tweets about votes on the Department of Veterans Affairs, criticizing Dems for not approving a proposal to fund the Wisconsin Veterans Museum with general purpose revenue rather than SEG funding, which they say would help make the vets trust fund public."
Or as Vos' tweeted: "GOP tries to maintain the integrity of the trust fund but we and veterans lost."
And then: "Its amazing that dems just defeated an increase in worker training saying that we couldn't afford it. What is a higher priority than this?"
Finally: "Wow. This is amazing. This motion cuts financial aid by 20 million!!"
Want to follow Vos' tweets yourself? You know you do! Follow him here. I wonder which other of our legislators are tweeting; this easily could get addictive.
