One of the reasons why I won’t be surprised…

April 9th, 2012

…if the John Doe investigation into Governor Walker’s time as Milwaukee County Executive suddenly comes out with some very damaging accusations right before the recall election:

Media Trackers is able to confirm that 43 current employees of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office signed the petition to recall Governor Scott Walker. A total of 70 names on matched the names of current employees at the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office, but not all could be completely confirmed at the time of publication. The employees signing the Walker recall petition range in stature from a Deputy District Attorney, to at least 19 Assistant District Attorneys, and a host of support staff.

    I’m sure Eric Holder will make sure everything is on the up and up.

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a policy against public political activity which is why none of their employees signed a recall petition (at least not with their own name). You would think that DAs and Judges should have a similar standard. Nobody is better at rationalization of double-standards than lawyers.

    Who else shouldn’t be able to participate in the political process, Roland, and why?
