Honestly, I thought Wisconsin had moved beyond this. I know drunk driving still does not receive the stigma it deserves, but I assumed that after five offenses a lawmaker's colleagues would kindly nudge him to retire to the bar.
I apparently know nothing of Wisconsin politics. The State Journal:
The six-member Assembly Special Committee on Ethics and Standards of Conduct split down party lines, with the three Republicans on the committee supporting expulsion and three Democrats voting for reprimand. That means there's no recommendation on how the Assembly should act.
Rep. Steve Nass, the crypto-fascist who introduced the expulsion resolution and then failed to show up to the first meeting on the issue, gets another great opportunity to slam Democrats for protecting members of their party at the expense of the public's safety and dignity.
It'd be interesting to see some polls on the issue. My bet would be that the older the voters the more likely they are to give Wood a pass on the drunk driving.
What do you think? Is it the Republicans against the drunken Democrats, or is it the Republicans against the people of Wisconsin?
