Is McCann rant really about gambling?

E. Michael McCann, having announced he is leaving office when his term ends in a year, made some more headlines Thursday when he criticized Gov. Jim Doyle on campaign finance issues.

In particular, McCann singled out contributions from Native American tribes to the Democratic Party, which used the money to help Doyle, their nominee for governor, in 2002. All perfectly legal, by the way.

Eye On Wisconsin wonders (1) why McCann didn't mention any Republican candidates for governor, who have campaign finance skeletons that are not even in the closet, and (2) whether this has more to do with McCann's opposition to gambling than campaign finance reform. Good questions.
