The lady doth protesteth too much
While county execs and board members are non-partisan, Wisconsin elects its sheriffs, clerks, district attorneys — even treasurers — in the November partisan elections, down ballot from presidents, congress, and state legislators.
“That has never made any sense,” writes John Nichols. For once, my old comrade has found the acorn!
“Alicia Leinberger is doing something about it … she is running for Vernon county clerk this year as an independent.” Nichols reports.
Leinberger argues that some of the most important functions of government ought not get bogged down in partisan politics. … Her yard signs declare that she’s “free from party politics.”
A political virgin! Found in the hill country of rural Wisconsin! A rare specimen!
Of course, Comrade John’s favorite just happens (Snark Alert!) to be running against a Republican incumbent in Trump country. A deeper dive into Nichols’ unreported, in-kind campaign contribution scrapes the varnish off the lady’s dishonest platform.
“What I’m promising is to question everything and to not have allegiance to either party,” Leinberger said through a Democracy for America mask on which activist messages — “Black Lives Matter,” “No Human is Illegal,” “Science is Real,” “Women’s Rights” — form the word “Vote.”
Non-partisan my pale white gluteus maximus! You guessed it! Alicia Lying Berger is — like John Nichols — a Bernie Sanders supporter! No wonder John Nichols wants this hard-wired Marxist social-justice warrior to run elections in deep red Wisconsin!
Blaska’s Bottom Line: An object lesson in dishonesty! Remember Lying Berger and her handler, Comrade Nichols, next time some good government goo-goo calls for a “non-partisan”legislative redistricting commission.
