Over at the “non-partisan” rag that is Media Trackers, Collin Roth wrote a piece a few days ago attacking Scot Ross, the former Executive Director of One Wisconsin Now, as being “hyper-partisan.” Roth goes on to allege Ross was the “subject of similar crimes” to those alleged to have been committed by three close aides to then-Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker.
Here’s what Roth wrote (emphasis mine):
Ross was involved in the legislative Caucus Scandal racking up nearly $4,000 in legal fees. It must be awkward for Kathleen Falk to criticize Governor Walker’s current John Doe investigation when the man writing her statements has been the subject of similar crimes.
I think it must be awkward for Collin Roth not to understand the difference between being alleged to have committed crimes (as Darlene Wink, Kelly Rindfleisch, and Tim Russell are) and having been tangentially involved in an investigation into wrongdoing (as Scot Ross was).
If Collin Roth was really interested in being “non-partisan,” he’d write about a real story – such as the apparent culture of corruption in Scott Walker’s County Executive office – instead of writing a hackish hit piece on Scot Ross.
Then again, it’s pretty clear the Collin Roth and the rest of the folks at Media Trackers aren’t interested in being “non-partisan.”
