Original title: WI GOP rep. questions state DOJ’s ethics after state attorney advises fleeing Dems, shows political support in private e-mail.

Wisconsin state Rep. Steve Nass is calling for an investigation of state Assistant Attorney General Thomas Bellavia after he sent an e-mail offering advice to two of the 14 fleeing Democratic senators on how to avoid getting caught by Wisconsin law enforcement. The e-mail also shows where Bellavia’s political support lies.

“I am a political supporter of your current efforts regarding the budget repair bill,” Bellavia wrote in a February 27 e-mail to Democratic state Sens. Joe Erpenbach and Mark Miller. Bellavia advised Erpenbach and Miller that, in other states, they should avoid counties that border Wisconsin as the state law enforcement may have jurisdiction there.

“If this statute [section 175.46] were to apply to the present situation of any of the 14 Democratic senators, it might allow Wisconsin law enforcement officers to cross into a border county, such as Winnebago County in Illinois, and take whatever actions they would be able to take in Wisconsin,” Bellavia wrote to the Democrats.

Nass sent a letter to Wisconsin’s attorney general, J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican, requesting a full investigation of the matter – looking specifically at whether Bellavia used official resources in his role as an assistant attorney general to gather or disseminate the information on how to break the law that he provided to the Democrats.

Doesn’t sound like a legal advocate for the state to me.

The public employees need to be purged from the state’s colon. Then go get a stomach banding and never ever make room for more than you need to survive.

Tom has nuttin’ to worry about, cuz should any repercussions come about, I'm sure the most corrup Attorney General in my lifetime (67 yrs) the Racist, Bigoted, Bottom-Feeding, Scumbag, Holder, will be glad to hire him...seeing they both both are Far Left Loons who operate fast and loose while ignoring the Constitution and their Oath of Office.
