What's Worse?

Jessica McBride has spent the entire week defending Scooter Jensen against the felonies he is charged with and on Friday said she was "disappointed" that his "selective prosecution" defense didn't work and she asks herself in her blog, "What would it take to prove selective prosecution?"

She wishes she could get Brian Blanchard on the stand and pretend she's Ally McBeal and ask him why he hasn't charged other people. "I'd love to see him have to answer that," McBride says.

Here's some unsolicited advice for McBride- Stick to your day job of prentending your a UWM Professor of Journalism.

And then next time you feel the urge to complain or comment about some other legal case or prosecution ask yourself these questions:

What's worse? The fact that the Milwaukee DA prosecuted the tire slashing case with four misdemeanors and $5,317.45 in restitution or the fact that Paul (Your husband who wants to be the state's top cop) didn't prosecute Mark Chmura with anything for enticing a 17-year-old girl into the bathroom and sexually assaulting her at a post-prom party.

What's worse? The fact that the Dane County DA charged and will prosecute Scooter for his offences or the fact that Paul failed to prosecute Mark Chmura with anything - zero, zip, nada - dogs run free.

I would love to see her have to answer that.

Are you nuts? You are actually claiming that Paul did NOT prosecute Mark Chmura? What planet were you living on? Go read the news clips. Obviously he prosecuted Mark Chmura. You must have been living in a cave when all those court TV vans showed up for the trial.

And by the way, I don't put much stock into postings from people who don't use their real names, who clearly don't get their facts straight (see above), and who resort to mean-spirited and personal postings to make a point. It will actually be nice to have Xoff back. At least he gets his facts straight. At least he has standards.

He lost, honey. His prosecution failed. Chmura was charged with nothing. He got off. That's a fact. The Court TV vans that covered your husband mean nothing, they count for nothing.

And what makes this personal? You are a public partisan and your husband is a public official--it's his record.

Chmura walked. Get used to it.

You are truly a moron. First you blow it with your erroneous statement, then you blow it off because Chmura was found not guilty. Bucher did his job you ignorant jackass. Its the jury who ultimately makes the decision. Thats why Chmura walked.

What was that about McBride sticking to her day job again?

At 12:28 PM, Blogger Harris Kane said...

To prosecute the case, or to pursue until completion, would have meant a guilty verdit and a conviction.

Bucher failed and Chmura walked.

I'm amazed that you "both" believe that a not guilty verdit can define a successful prosecution.

So on the Chmura case it's the peoples fault not Bucher's?

Harris one big differance between Mark Chmura and Mr. Judge and the demomcratic crowd.


If every prosecution were a conviction we wouldn't need judges.

Dear Harris Kane,

Your ignorance of even the most basic tenants of the legal system should make any supporter of the lay jury cringe. Bucher charged Chewy. The jury did not convict. Duh.

What makes this personal, "Harris Kane" or whoever you are? Well, let's see "Harris Kane," you used my wedding picture in an earlier vicious posting, without my permission, and commented on my love life. And you think this passes for serious political commentary in this state? Give me a break. And you said Paul did not prosecute Chmura, not that he didn't convict him. Go buy a dictionary.

The most laughable part about the Jensen "everybody did it" defense was that Scooter indeed was the Master of Ceremony over the slide of the state legislature into the sewer of the money flood and nasty partisanship.

Before Tommy and Scooter the ethics of this state was the envy of the nation. Now it is anything but. The biggest enablers in all of this were the pussy cats running the two Milwaukee dailies.

Now that the Journal has woke up and found its teeth they are sinking them into Jim Doyle, not once raising the question of where Walker and Green are getting their thousands.

These poor schmucks. No matter how much they pander to wingnuts in the suburbs they will always be suspect as being a liberal paper. To bad they never realize that among conservatives, the fact snever get in the way of a good story.

Jensen deserves his trial but he also deserves to swing for mucking up Madison.

The idea that you are ever engaged in "serious political commentary" is a joke and I have never claimed that I was.

Politics ain't bean bag, ma'am, and your shameless self promotion brings with it 2 sides of the street.

Isn't it ironic that people like you and your husband feel as though you can define other people's love life and outlaw it for some, while at the same time no one is allowed to comment on yours?

As for the "prosecution" of Chmura that your husband is so "proud of" yet it shows up no where on his campaign website, let's just agree to call it what it was "a humiliating courtroom defeat in the national spotlight."

I still find it interesting that comments aren't allowed on McBride's blog.

What? Can't stand the heat?

It'll be refreshing to have Xoff back. He can be a pitbull in defending his position, but at least he stays out of the gutter.

Pity I can't say the same about his substitute.
