I take absolutely no pleasure from this

June 16th, 2010

Christopher Liebenthal, sildenafil pharmacy (a.k.a. Capper) the Milwaukee County employee and liberal blogger known for his vicious attacks on anything conservative, and especially anything regarding County Executive Scott Walker, is under investigation by the Milwaukee District Attorney, for blogging on the taxpayer dime. The District Attorney has sized Liebenthal’s computer and records show he has been blogging during work hours. Liebenthal blogs on at least three blogs and edits the Wisconsin section of the BlogNetNews, a service that collects information from blogs.

This stems from a complaint filed by government watch dog Citizens for Responsible Government’s Orville Seymer. CRG’s Chris Kliesmet also adds, “Wisconsin law prohibits public employees from using taxpayer resources for political purposes, a government employee running political blogs at work is clearly taxpayer-funded political activity.“

    Bless CRG’s heart for their open records work, but they should admit their political motivation to this particular target. I have no doubt that there are people wasting their employer dollars all day long, at both public and private offices.

    And who’s cheering the loudest at BadgerBlogger? Glenn “RelieveD” Frankovis and Gus/Mickey, a known crank caller.

    Also note that CRG identified three dates Chris supposedly blogged on County time, but they were two furlough days and a vacation day.

    Chris will be fine. CRG will have egg on their faces again and all will be right with the world.

    Has Orv gotten anything but his first shot anywhere near the target he was aiming at? I know CRG left Dane County wondering what happened.

    “I take absolutely no pleasure from this”

    I wonder if Darlene Wink feels the same way?

    What do you mean, Terry? When confronted, Darlene Wink resigned.

    If you believe everything you read in the newspaper…
