Dale Schultz's Fine Whine By Charlie Sykes


Dale Schultz’s campaign to remake himself from RINO buffoon to Bipartisan Statesman took an odd twist this week, when the GOP senator took to the airwaves to accuse his colleagues of "humiliating" themselves by going on my radio show... and opposing new taxes.

Schultz used the occasion to lash at out at both conservative radio and GOP Senate Leader Scott Fitzgerald:


RightWisconsin Report Prompts Call for Investigation, Audit of GAB

Yesterday we brought you the stunning news that Wisconsin’s statewide poll list would not be updated in time for the April election and that the Government Accountability Board considered the law ‘not practical.’

Within minutes of the publication of our report, lawmakers from across the state, including the Speaker of the State Assembly, reacted with calls for action.

Here is a smattering:

"The G.A.B. is undermining the integrity of our election process, "GAB officials are intentionally ignoring a state statute and it must stop."

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Burlington)...

“In the meantime Senator Leah Vukmir and I will be drafting a letter to Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen requesting that his office investigate this latest failure of GAB to carry out its duties as prescribed by sec. 5.05 of the Wisconsin State Statutes.”

It is not surprising to hear of another instance of the Government Accountability Board simply ignoring state law. Over the last several years GAB has consistently shown itself to be an agency that has ignored the intent of the Legislature when interpreting state statutes and in failing to carry out its own responsibilities. That certainly is the case in the agency's reported failure to insure that state voter rolls would be purged before the April 2nd election.

Unimpressed With Chief Flynn

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn’s testimony before a Senate Committee on Wednesday was widely hailed by liberals. But not everyone was standing and applauding for Flynn.
Writing at the Huffington Post, Radley Balko called Chief Flynn "a really poor choice" to testify at Sen Feinstein’s hearing on an assault weapons ban. Balko quoted Chief Flynn’ over-the-top response to a 2009 decision to allow Wisconsin citizens to open-carry when Flynn said, "my message to my troops is if to see anybody carrying a gun on the streets of Milwaukee, we’ll put them on the ground, take the gun away and then decide whether you have a right to carry it."
