Walker ethics head -- from bad to worse?

When County Exec Scott Walker nominated Don Uebelacker, a retired sales manager who helped build Citizens for Responsible Government in 2002, to head the Milwaukee County Ethics Board, I thought anyone would be an improvement over John Carter, the outgoing chair. Carter could never see anything wrong with whatever Walker did.

But Jim McGuigan has given me some second thoughts. McGuigan (who lost his County Board seat in a CRG-baxcked recall) calls Uebelacker "a known CGR liar," and says:

He's a cancer that started rotting Brown Deer politics and whose influence quickly metasticized to other parts of Milwaukee County. To further his political agenda, he has penned deceitfull editorials in CNI's Northshore Herald and that paper has been forced to run corrections because they didn't check his claims first.
And that's just for starters.

Watch it. You are WAY off base on this one. You're using known serial prevaricator, defrocked supervisor (and possibly the only supervisor to refuse to rescind his ill-gotten pension gains - let me confirm that) Jim McGuigan as your source. Do yourself a favor and do some fact checking. For example, Uebelacker was NOT nominated to head the Ethics Board.

I will take responsibility for that error. He is nominated to replace the chairman, not be the chairman.

I let people make their own judgment about McGuigan, but did note that he was recalled.
