cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
So we finally know; Governor Walker is not to be indicted in the age old John Doe investigation and trials that flowed from that investigation. The investigation has officially ended with public announcements this morning.
What will the state Democratic Party do to replace the numerous press releases and photo ops by Graeme Zielinski intimating that there were more shoes to drop, and that the Governor might still be under investigation?
The Milwaukee DA’s office may find extra time available to work on the rest of its caseload, as well.
Ever since this story broke, there has been a steady stream of innuendo and newsy articles wondering ‘if this’ or ‘if that’, but seemingly this has now come to an end. Most of the elections that might’ve swung one way or another based on this potential blockbuster have been finished. The Governor cannot be recalled again at least until after he is formally re-elected to another four-year term.
I think we can be very much assured that there is nothing in the Governor’s past that could be found given the effort already put into finding or creating any shred of evidence that could be used to drag him through the mud. He has been thoroughly vetted.
Maybe the full attention of this propaganda machine will be re-directed against the incumbent Supreme Court justice now standing for re-election.
This episode is a less-than-stellar period for the Tate/Zielinski duo that runs the Democratic Party in Wisconsin.
