THE GREAT LIBERAL HOPE

Liberals once again are trying to purge moderate Democratic Senator Jeff Plale.

And have apparently settled on County Supervisor "Sticky Fingers" Chris Larson, who wants to take his unqiue talents for stealing other people's money to Madison.

Christopher Larson is a 27-year-old business manager for a series of sports stores who is the favorite to win a seat on the County Board.

But things were much different in March 2000.

Larson was a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and, by his own description, struggling to make ends meet.

That's when he was busted for retail theft.

"I made a dumb mistake," Larson said Friday.

The details of the case are fuzzy. He said he was caught stealing food from a Milwaukee grocery store. He said he can't remember exactly which items he tried to obtain with a five-finger discount. A copy of the city ticket, which carried a $331 fine, and the court file were not available late Friday.
