19. Actually the older scandal says alot about wisconsin
Edited on Sun Apr-10-11 03:47 AM by karnac
It was a HUGE deal, 5 people got convicted.

The Dem majoriity leader(The big fish) only got 9 months AND he got his license to practice law back.
As far as i can tell they all can practice law again and/or had their convictions overturned. At leqst one of them is working for the state again!

This never would happen in CA.

Not saying there is any more corruption in Wisconsin than anywhere else. Just a heck of a lot of forgiveness for past issues.

As far as her situation, she gets elected and re-elected. Why? Her job does not just consist of just keeping track of votes. But of schmoozing like a politician.. If you ignore her lack of data entry skills, it appears she has done a good job of at least that.

Im too lazy to go looking back again newspaper records in the area, but it appears she has won numerous good-deed-type awards/thanks for stuff like explaining elections to high schoolers to making things easier for seniors/hispanics to vote. And participating in fund drives. Even having VERY friendly relations with the few Democrats in the area.

That very skill set has allowed her constituents to look past her bloopers(which have not been consequential til now) and her obvious control freakiness.
