After getting just about everything he damn well wanted from the county for Miller Park, former Milwaukee Brewers owner and current baseball commissioner Bud Selig is raising money to stab the county board in the back:
“…as the Greater Milwaukee Committee mounts a lobbying campaign to pass the measure. An arm of the group called Smart Government Inc. is holding a fundraiser at 5 p.m. Jan. 24 in the office of baseball commissioner Bud Selig on the 30th floor of the U.S. Bank building at 777 E. Wisconsin Ave., according to an invitation.
It is being hosted by a group of Milwaukee business leaders, including retired Northwestern Mutual CEO Ed Zore, Fiduciary Management Executive Chairman Ted Kellner, private investor Sheldon Lubar, Badger Meter President Rich Meeusen and Selig, along with each of their wives..”
And exactly how does Mr. Selig get away with using the commissioners office for an essentially local political function?
And as a footnote: along with each of their wives? What the heck is that? Is the GMC still a 19th century patriarchy?
