MILWAUKEE - A 19 year old Brookfield woman was sentenced today to four years in prison, after she pleaded no contest to reduced charges in a drunk driving crash that killed one person and injured another. Jasmine Lyboualong was convicted of negligent homicide and reckless injury. Milwaukee Police said her vehicle struck and killed 30 year old Michael Grabowski last March, as he was helping a pedestrian who was hit by a car in another traffic mishap. Officers said Lyboualong was driving home from a tavern, and she went around barriers that were set up. Police said the woman also struck a bartender from a nearby tavern who was helping a victim of that first mishap. Rhiannon Patz suffered numerous leg fractures and facial cuts. Investigators said Lyboualong claimed to have just two beers but she was not aware that her vehicle hit anyone until the police told her.
If a state elections official has his way, outside groups would not be able to challenge improper recall petitions that they see on-line. Kevin Kennedy says he’ll ask the Government Accountability Board tomorrow to strike only those signatures that the board’s staff finds faulty, or those brought to the agency by the petition circulators or the targets of the petitions. There are said to be efforts taking place throughout the country to check the validity of the estimated 1.9 million recall signatures against Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and four GOP senators. If the board approves Kennedy’s recommendation, the outside groups might have to take its questionable signatures to the recall targets in order to challenge them. But time is running out. Senators Scott Fitzgerald, Pam Galloway, Van Wanggaard, and Terry Moulton have until Thursday to file challenges with the Accountability Board. The Walker campaign has until February 27th to challenge signatures. And Kleefisch’s camp has until March fifth to do the same.
