Never in all my years writing about politics in Wisconsin’s capital city have I witnessed the leaders of state government so committed to dragging Wisconsin back to mediocrity where special interests rule and the people are relegated to the back of the bus.
And to top it off, we have now been treated to a behind-the-scenes look at just how ethically challenged Gov. Scott Walker is and to what lengths he’ll go to give himself a leg up. The Milwaukee County John Doe investigation has exposed how Walker was involved in the sordid commingling of political and taxpayer-paid business while he was Milwaukee County executive. But it shouldn’t have been surprising. It was foreshadowed all the way back to his college days when he ran for Marquette student president and bent the rules there, too.
