  •  "This is why I asked for Kevin Kennedy’s ... (5+ / 0-)
    ...resignation and for the Senate and Legislature to immediately defund the GAB and replace it with a body that is under the watchful eye of the voter."
    Because I and the voters I choose to acknowledge are sooooo much less partisan than those stinky judges.

    From the G.A.B. site:

    The G.A.B. officially began work in January 2008. It was created a year earlier in 2007 Wisconsin Act 1, replacing the State Elections Board and the State Ethics Board.

    The G.A.B. is made up of six former judges, nominated by a panel of four Wisconsin Appeals Court judges, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. The six board members serve staggered six-year terms; one member's term expires each year.  Both the Board and its staff must be non-partisan.

    Sure sounds like a dastardly lot with a sweet spot in the hoo-hoo for all kinds of political naughtiness.

    It seems curiosity has killed the cat that had my tongue.
