Pity poor Andy Pantzlaff.
Pantzlaff, who currently serves as the president of United Sportsmen of Wisconsin, wants everyone to know he’s a poor victim. You see, Pantzlaff thinks he’s a victim in light of all the “abuse” he’s received in the aftermath of revelations United Sportsmen received a sweetheart grant for $500,000 after his former boss inserted the grant provision into the biennial state budget.
“I am now re-examining what I really want to do and maybe I just need time for myself and my family to heal from the abuse I have taken over trying to make a difference.”
Of course, what Andy Pantzlaff calls “trying to take a difference” I’d call “capitalizing on a political connection for personal gain.”
Despite his assertions, Andy Pantzlaff isn’t a victim; his situation is simply another example of how Republican elected officials have turned Wisconsin’s tax coffers into a free-for-all to the benefit of their allies and contributors.
