Bizarre Brett Hulsey is no fan of Mary Burke

“Democratic” State Rep. Brett Hulsey is off his rocker (emphasis added).

With embattled Rep. Brett Hulsey, you never know what to expect.

This started out being a post on Hulsey’s unusual use of campaign funds to buy an old convertible and register for a triathlon. But by the end of two chats on Monday, the Madison lawmaker was openly contemplating a run for governor after dismissing the leading Democrat eyeing a bid.

“I was at an event with Mary Burke the other day,” said Hulsey, a Democrat. “She’s got the charisma of a turnip.”

Not content to trash Mary Burke, Hulsey went on to float himself as a possible gubernatorial candidate, though it’s not clear from Dan Bice’s report if Hulsey would run as a Democrat or as an independent.

      1. Oh Zach. Glad I’m not working the political scene anymore. Heck, maybe you can do a follow-up story and call me a scam artist again.

        1. Nah, no need for me to rehash stories that have already been exhaustively covered.

          And for the record, I didn’t call you a scam artist. I asked if you were a scam artist or a political grifter. There’s a difference there – not that I’d expect you to see it.

          Oh, and trust me….we’re ALL glad you’re not “working the political scene” anymore, if that’s what you want to call what you were doing.

  1. I’d endorse Mary Burke if she runs for governor and Brett Hulsey is her only Democratic primary opponent. I’m not fond of Burke at all (largely because she’s a corporatist Democrat of the Jim Doyle/Tom Barrett mold), but Hulsey is unfit for public office.
