Just a quick hit…the Milwaukee Journal website is currently featuring an article saying the Republican US Senate candidate Erick Hovde wants to sue over an attack ad! He is accusing his major opponent, Tommy Thompson, of being behind the ad…or maybe he’s not…depends. But the actual group running the ad is the Americans for Job Security and the ad accuses Hovde’s companies of accepting stimulus money. So that’s the short and sweet…but read the rest it’s kinda interesting.
But here’s my take away from the article: Mr. Hovde is quoted as saying:
“This is the very heart of why our political system is broken,” Hovde said in an interview. “Money pours in. You don’t know where it’s coming from . . . This is robbing us of our democracy.”
So, any moment now we should hear that Mr. Hovde has added campaign finance reform to his platform…right?
