Priebus in White House boosts Walker, Clarke, WI model

Donald Trump's selection of Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff gives Wisconsin pols like Scott Walker, David Clarke and others an inside track for a ticket out of the backwater Wisconsin they created as well as a personal chance to repopulate the Washington, DC swamp.

Though four recent deaths in Clarke's county jail - - including one officially labeled a homicide after jail personnel turned off a mentally-disturbed inmate's water and the inmate died of hydration, records show - - suggest Clarke's got his own swamp to clean.

Priebus helped enlist the Tea Party as Save-Walker-Recall-Ground Troopers a few years ago.

Heck - - Priebus and Robin Vos were UW-Whitewater college roomies, so might there be a job out east for Vos or those of his ilk who'd enjoy sipping $350-a-bottle wine with Paul Ryan, lunching with Cong. Glenn Grothman, pocketing fat new salaries, chatting with all the big right-wing donors and super-connected lobbyists, and multiplying by 50 their current one-state influence?

Not to mention talking up and helping transfer ever more bigly Walker's "chamber of commerce mentality" government take down and sell off?

Get ready for Washington, DC haters from Wisconsin and elsewhere to flock to the city they love to hate - - except when there are plum jobs and all sorts of bennies to scrounge.

Priebus is clueless in so many ways, one wonders how he ended up with a JD, or getting hired by Quarles and Brady.

Clark needs to be brought up on charges or murder or manslaughter over his actions, or non-actions, at his jails. He also needs to return the money that is not allowed him under his current Milwaukee County Sheriff's contract.

Maybe this will allow us to fill in the swamp in Wisconsin. if, with any luck, they all leave for Washington.

Priebus is willing to work with both Trump and Bannon so it is true that he is a racist and an anti-Semite.
