The man needs professional help
Now that he is the newest member of the WI Ethics Commission, (One) Scot Ross is turning up the volume on his obscene degradation of the public square. The supposed adjudicator of ethical political activity. Dan Bice of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Ross on Monday (05-04-2020)
… retweeted photoshopped images of Michigan militia members carrying large sex toys instead of rifles during their recent protests of coronavirus-related restrictions. Ross then set the photos to the over-the-top tune of “Stand with Governor (Scott) Walker” … When [Sen. Jennifer Shilling] was asked if she had any regrets about appointing the foul-mouthed firebrand, the La Crosse Democrat said, “I am walking out the door.”
Ross sprays his sputum on all Republicans at every level of government. But he does not spare members of the WI Supreme Court, which is an odd stance for an adjudicator of ethics.
Ross is obviously a sick man. But what is Sen. Shilling’s excuse? The sad thing is, there does not seem any way to revoke the appointment. It needs no approval; it was Shilling’s appointment to make, as senate minority leader.
⇒ Previously at the Werkes: “Democrats appoint foul-mouthed partisan to Ethics Board.”
⇒ “Shilling soils her Senate exit with bad pick for ethics panel.” — WI State Journal.
⇒ “Vitriolic partisanship has no place on a serious, bipartisan governing apparatus.” — National Review.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: At this rate, even The Capital Times may weigh in. Doesn’t editor emeritus like to preach civility in government from time to time? (Maybe not this time.)
