Sheriff Mahoney's Conflict
HT Christian Schneider: In case you don't recognize the folks in this ad endorsing uber-liberal Justice Shirley Abrahamson that is (1) Judge Maryann Sumi and (2) Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney.... Mahoney is now charged with investigating the charges against Abrahamson critic Justice David Prosser. Abrahamson will be a key witness and the case will turn on the credibility of the various witnesses. Conflict? Much? Seriously, he needs to recuse himself ASAP.
UPDATE: Reader notes
Recall that it was Mahoney who refused to use Dane County sheriff deputies to protect the Capitol during the protests in March, stating that his deputies would not be “palace guards” for Scott Walker. He also appeared in this campaign ad for Shirley Abrahamson <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcVqzQaUui4> , who is undoubtedly a key figure in the investigation. Interestingly, Judge Sumi also appears in that Shirley ad. They’re running a bona fide liberal cartel here on the isthmus, and now their cartel is in charge of investigating Prosser.
