I usually ignore the typically outrageous columns produced by Christian Schneider…and naturally there is very little in his mythic realm that I agree with…and so it is today. But today I have to find fault with his misstatement of fact. After extolling Governor Walker’s virtues and electoral victories…he said:
At least he can find comfort in in the fact that he has yet to lose to a Democrat…
Well most local Dems know that he lost his first race for Wisconsin State Assembly to Democrat and current US House of Representatives member Gwen Moore. Not only lost…but got beat 69% to 31%.
This appeared in the print edition that hit my front porch this morning and apparently in the digital edition as well…but JSOnline now has a correction flagged at the top of the article linked above:
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this column mistakenly said that Gov. Scott Walker has not lost to a Democrat. Walker was defeated by U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore in his first race out of college.
Whoops for Mr. Schneider and who the heck is editing at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel?
