Jim Doyle used the State Election Board to win his re-election. I know that there is no way to go backwards and fix this. But I think it is important to keep fighting the good fight.

The Democrats have been winning elections in Wisconsin by dirty tricks for a very long time....at every level. The Doyle tactics against Mark Green were so brazen and disgusting and the press so complicit that I shudder to think what they might be emboldened to do in the future.

I hope that something comes of this. Not only did this distract the momentum of the Green campaign off kilter, their shilly-shallying probably caused Walker (the stronger candidate, IMHO, to drop out.

The major reason that Walker removed himself from the race is that Green had a larger war chest because he thought he could use his Federal money. (Green asked for an opinion and was told that it was legal.) As a consequence, leading Republican powers threw their support and money to Green.

When use of the Fedral campaign funds was suddenly denied by the elections board, it disrupted the Green campaign and he ultimately lost the election. Now we find that the election board came to their conclusion illegally.

The whole thing stinks.

Several of 'em are lawyers and should they should be disciplined by the Bar. This was an obvious conspiracy to vote collectively against Green, despite the existence of recent precedent which allowed the current mayor of Milwaukee to do the same thing Green sought to do.

It's the most brazen act among many others that mark Doyle's tenure as Governor. Retribution is not a luxury, but a necessity.
