call to Bliss Com's Dan Conry Show. Here was a key exchange from the segment.Graeme Zielinski, Communications Director of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, clarified the party's case on Joe Knilans ineligibility to occupy the 44th district seat during a
Conry: I can tell you right now for a fact several months ago, the previous host of this show, Stan Milam, had Joe Knilans on and it was at that time, I believe it was May or June of last year where Joe did say “I am now domiciled in my brother’s basement.” So, if we go to intent which I believe the statute shows cause if you show intent and cause…
Zielinski: Wait a second then, if that’s the case, why did he vote in the 45th? He committed voter fraud then if he's saying he was living in the 44th District since June. He can’t vote…
Conry: So, in other words he should not have voted for Amy Loudenback?
Zielinski: Yeah, if he was living in the 44th. He voted in the 45th District. So, you have to establish residency for ten days prior to voting in a district and you also have to establish residency for ten days prior to representing the district and taking the oath. You can't have one without the other.
A must read!! Janesville Gazette Editorial - Partisan AG Will Back Knilans
First the apologist Gazette attempts to draw equivalencies between Knilans and Sheridans' entirely different residency situations and between party officials and legislative Democrats. Then they confidently suggest because partisanship will overrule professionalism in the AG's office, justice will not likely prevail for the democrats complaint. This is a bizarre, petty and a laugher editorial, just what I'd expect coming from the illegitimate Janesville Gazette. I couldn't make this stuff up no matter how hard I try. Remember folks, they charge money for their product!
