The Democratic Party of Wisconsin has filed a complaint against Republican State Senator Alberta Darling (pictured, right) alleging that Sen. Darling has committed multiple felonies, including misconduct in office and tampering with public records and notices, not to mention violations of the state’s open records laws.
Also named as parties to the complaint are right-wing groups Americans For Prosperity, Wisconsin Family Action, Wisconsin Right to Life and the lobbying arm of for-profit education corporations, the so-called American Federation for Children.
According to the complaint, Sen. Darling has failed to comply with an open records request relating to any records (emails, schedules, etc.) her office may have in regards to communications she or her staff may have had with the groups listed above, and it’s worth noting that at least two of the groups listed – Americans For Prosperity and Wisconsin Right to Life – have engaged in electoral shenanigans, so it’s not entirely unrealistic to think there was some hanky-panky going on between Sen. Darling and her office and the groups named by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
If Sen. Darling didn’t have anything to hide, then what is she trying to hide by refusing to comply with an open records request?
