He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN.

If that’s why he was fired, the pink slip was issued in error. This bozo should have been fired because to this minute he doesn’t realize what an absolute moron he was.
When Covenant defeated Dallas Academy in a girl’s high school basketball game in Texas, 100-0, I did not call for the head of the Covenant coach.
He was a complete embarrassment and needed to be ashamed of himself, but one would hope this idiot would learn from the multitude of coaching and instructional mistakes he made.
Micah Grimes, the coach who just wasn’t satisfied with winning by 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, or 90 points, was fired by Covenant. Some will say it’s because he refused to apologize for the humiliation he caused a team of girls, some afflicted with learning disabilities.
Am I tossing out a lot of names? You bet I am because this poor excuse of a coach deserves them all.
Just read some of the comments this jackass made as reported by the Dallas Morning News:
"I respectfully disagree with the apology, especially the notion that the Covenant School girls basketball team should feel 'embarrassed' or 'ashamed.’ We played the game as it was meant to be played and would not intentionally run up the score on any opponent. Although a wide-margin victory is never evidence of compassion, my girls played with honor and integrity and showed respect to Dallas Academy."
That, of course is a bunch of bull. The ever-classy Grimes continued:
"So if I lose my job over these statements, I will walk away with my integrity."
Mr. Grimes, you have no integrity.
There are a lot of jerks in the coaching profession. Micah Grimes is one of the biggest.
