THE REAL CHRIS ABELE
It's not news that philanthropist Chris Abele is a liberal; he has contributed money to Democrats and liberal causes for years. But he has been running for county executive as a bipartisan centrist, stressing his willingness to work with both Democrats and Republicans.
Contrast that with his comments at Monday's meeting of the Milwaukee Democrat party, in which he proudly, unabashedly defines himself as a "lefty," lists his progressive credentials... brags about support for the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Citizen Action, NARAL, rips Scott Walker and declares his intention spend more on human services. This is not how he portrays himself when he's not talking with his peeps.
I played the audio this morning... it has now been posted (audio only) on Youtube. You can listen here to Abele's remarks.
