I mean really…the lead law enforcement agent in the State Of Wisconsin, Attorney General Brad Schimel…is also one of the leading Republican electeds in Madison. And although he dramatically came out in opposition to the curtailment of state open records as introduced to the state biennial budget, he barely gets mentioned in press coverage! I mean, WTF?

Today’s JSOnline for instance:

Attorney General Brad Schimel, a Republican, also spoke out against the changes.

Wisconsin State Journal: nada

Wisconsin State Journal July 3: nada

JSOnline July 3: a bit more effusive but still:

Attorney General Brad Schimel, a Republican, also spoke out against the changes.

“Transparency is the cornerstone of democracy and the provisions in the Budget Bill limiting access to public records move Wisconsin in the wrong direction,” he said in a statement. Schimel is the state’s lead elected official responsible for handling open records issues.

I would actually like to see an interview with the attorney general…and have someone ask him about these shenanigans and why no one at WEDC is be prosecuted for their whole snake pit?

    With an AG as Shimel, there is hope for justice in Wisconsin unlike the previous occupant who was a rubber stamp for the evil of Walker, Fitzgerald, Voss, et al.
