Management consultant Kevin Nicholson (R) criticized state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R) “for taking some pay raises, calling her a hypocrite for not always returning them over her 15 years in the Legislature.” Vukmir “has been in the Legislature since 2003, first in the Assembly and now in the Senate. Vukmir returned two raises she's received over that time, but kept two others.”

“Vukmir, who got divorced in 2005, was working as a nurse at St. Mary's Hospital in Milwaukee when she joined the Legislature.” (AP)

CLIENT LIST. “Nicholson consulted for more than two dozen companies since 2016, half of them financial firms, according to his latest disclosure to the U.S. Senate Ethics committee. The disclosure helps fill in a key piece of Nicholson’s biography: his business career as a management consultant, currently for the Chicago firm ghSMART.”

“Half of the 26 clients Nicholson disclosed are financial firms: private equity firms such as New York-based American Securities or Boston-based Berkshire Partners, or investment advisers such as Los Angeles-based Ares Management, LLC. The others span a range of industries, including manufacturing, technology, IT, oil and gas, and a self-storage provider.” (Wisconsin State Journal)
