Green, Bucher take a pass on ethics quiz

Common Cause, the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, and the League of Women Voters asked state candidates to answer six simple questions on ethics reform. Unlike some questionnaires, which take hours to answer essay-style, these were yes-no answers.

The results are in, and Mark Green and Paul Bucher didn't bother to respond, as Seth Zlotocha notes.

Most likely they think all three groups are part of the Great Left Wing Conspiracy. I recall that when Green was looking for a way to dispose of dirty money from Tom DeLay months ago, one option was to give the money to the League of Women Voters for a get-out-the-vote effort, but Green's campaign said he was "not comfortable" doing that -- BECAUSE THOSE WOMEN ARE LOONY LEFT-WINGERS. Well, they didn't say that; you had to read between the lines, which wasn't hard.

As for Bucher? Who knows? Or cares?

The League of Liberal Women Voters are nothing but another branch of the Democratic Party.

They don't deserve the time of day unless you are a Presidential candidate and even then there is a 'bi-partisan' debate committee that sets those up.

Their name is League of Women Voters. They have been around for 86 years and they are strictly non-partisan.

Once again Xout = coward.

Golly, Xoff, I would think you, of all people, would know how hard it is to give yes or no answers to complicated policy issues. Of course, I'm just John Q. Citizen with a blog and not a fancy political operative.
