F-bomber (One) Scot Ross is a ‘loathsome appointment’
The public square has been further degraded. (One) Scot Ross has been appointed to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission. Cover your children’s ears, stock up on mouthwash, be prepared to hit the Bleep-out button. The man is the F-35 fighter jet of F-bombing political trash talkers.
The Ethics Commission is the guardian of Wisconsin’s political morality, such as it is. (One) Scot Ross is One of the most foul-mouthed, gut-punching partisans in politics. Former head of a dark-money special ops outfit called One Wisconsin Now. Does the dirty work the Democrat(ic) party is too embarrassed to do. For the next five years, (One) Scot Ross will sit in judgment:
- of your ethics, state public officials;
- whether you’ve filled out the right forms, candidates for state public office;
- source of your funding, citizen groups who wish to speak in the public arena.
He’s the (One) Scot Ross:
For the record …
All of which is beautiful music to Senate Democrat(ic) leader Jennifer Shilling, who used her one allotted appointment to the Ethics Commission on One Scot.
“Scott Ross has championed efforts to preserve Wisconsin’s proud tradition of clean, open and transparent government, high ethical standards …” blah, blah, blah, Schilling said, in announcing her statutory appointment (needs no confirmation) to the six-member Ethics Commission. (More here.) Schilling is leaving the Senate, so perhaps this is her farewell raspberry.
‘How much must Jen Shilling hate Wisconsinites to make such a loathsome appointment?‘ asks State Rep. Barb Ward Dittrich, R-Oconomowoc.
Blaska’s up-close experience with One Scot was our appearance on WKOW-TV27’s Capital City Sunday program a few years ago. After the cameras dimmed, One Scot let loose a two-minute stream of obscene invective. Our host’s eyes turned into blank saucers. Blaska merely smiled.
UPDATED HUZZAH! WI State Journal editorial: “Shilling soils Senate exit with bad pick.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Who will Democrats put up next? Andrew Dice Clay?
