“He was one of Walker’s most trusted confidants,” said Orville Seymer, a property manager active in recall politics through Citizens for Responsible Government.
No doubt if the tables were turned and the “he” we were referring to was one of Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle’s “most trusted confidants,” conservatives wouldn’t be calling Doyle the victim, as is the case on some conservative blogs.
It’s far more likely that if one of Jim Doyle’s “most trusted confidants” had been arrested and charged with two felonies for embezzlement and it turned out that action taken by Doyle gave said “most trusted confidant” direct access to the monies that were embezzled, we’d be hearing conservatives calling for Gov. Doyle to resign.
