In the 2006 elections, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and the Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee were pretty proud of the fact that they had candidates in almost all of the 99 Assembly races, but I couldn’t help but notice one race that had an unopposed Republican incumbent.

It’s well established I’m no fan of Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and that I think he’s done a horrible job of managing Milwaukee County during his time in office.

Who can forget the case of Scott Jensen, former Speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly who was convicted of three felonies? I haven’t forgotten, and I haven’t forgotten the fact that despite being convicted in May of 2006 to serve 15 months in Wisconsin State Prison for his three felony convictions, Scott Jensen has not [...]
