J. Kleefisch's retiring is good news for wildlife, good government

Add this fresh crack in Wisconsin GOP gerrymandered wall to the fissure created by Paul Ryan's unscheduled withdrawal from the Congress:

GOP State Rep. Joel Kleefisch - - spouse of tea partying Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and the State Capitol's leading proponent of marinating wolves and legislating sandhill cranes into 'rib-eyes in the sky' with - - ahem - -  less than full disclosure about his bill's origins - - is leaving the Wisconsin Assembly.

And, yes this a big step in the right direction for good government in Wisconsin.

We already have a Governor and legislature who let a mining company led by a major donor help write for itself a self-interested sweetheart bill that rolled back environmental protections and citizen involvement in permitting, and we didn't need legislators like Kleefisch willing do the same thing - - twice - - for another GOP donor who had an interest in favorable divorce settlement bill-writing.

The times they are a-changin.'

There's fixin to be a massive bulge in wingnut welfare applications. They'd better hope their Ponzi doesn't collapse under it's own dead weight.
