Another Criminal Trial on Blanchard's Calendar?

S'pose Brian Blanchard's going to prosecute this guy--and try to put him in jail IMMEDIATELY if a conviction is won?

A state regulatory attorney is under investigation for violating work rules by asking hundreds of co-workers in an e-mail to oppose a death penalty referendum this fall.

Arthur Thexton, a lawyer for the Department of Regulation & Licensing, is under investigation for a June 15 e-mail that called on fellow employees to oppose the advisory referendum, which will be on the Nov. 7 ballot, said Steven Gloe, the agency's general counsel

Using state resources to campaign is illegal.

Umnnhhh..Al, I didn't even pick up the Doyle-staffer story in this AM's Milwaukee JSOnline.

First off: it's not exactly political. You never read a post in which I exonerated Jensen; my only "friendly" post on J. was that he should not be incarcerated pending appeal. He's not exactly a danger to wimmin/chilluns...

As to "the system," I've advocated a reform whereby only the Parties, in separate office quarters, run the politics.

Leg staff and Exec staff do NOTHING but gummint-related stuff, period. No babysitting, no shoe-polishing, nothing but State affairs-related.

Same for the civil service, which is where this guy is located. NO politics, sorry, on State equipment or State time.

I'm not really late to the party, Al--but I've not written out my thoughts.
