"Keg" Lift-Und-Schlepp-Em Returns

In what can only be called another case of Dimowit Projection, the former Wisconsin Attorney General finds her way to a newspaper reporter, and drools forth:

Former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager and other Democratic leaders warned that drug companies are part of an effort by so-called "independent" groups to influence the outcome of the Supreme Court race.

Lautenschlager questioned whether the drug companies - who have cases pending before the Supreme Court - are paying for so-called "issue ads" sponsored by business groups. The groups are not required to disclose the sources of their funding because their ads do not directly tell voters to elect or defeat a candidate.

Lautenschlager said Ziegler has a "personal financial stake" in the success of the drug companies because financial disclosure reports show she and her husband own at least $265,000 worth of stock in pharmaceutical companies.

Unmentioned is the possibility that Ziegler would recuse.

But I suppose that Ms. Clifford's entire investment portfolio will be published for examination by the voters, right?
