Non-partisans On Government Board Don’t Strike The Right Balance Republicans Seek.

From the “reality has a liberal bias” file comes one of Wisconsin’s premier partisan hacks, State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who said the state's nonpartisan Government Accountability Board (GAB) should be reconstituted to include political appointees from the state legislature. This he claims, would create a more "balanced" board. Republicans currently control both houses of the state Legislature.

Wisconsin State Journal Excerpt:
But Fitzgerald said the GAB should look more like the Elections Board, with partisan political appointees. That approach, he said, "seems to strike more of a balance than what we're up against now."

No. Really.

Anything going by the the name of “government accountability board” isn’t supposed to be politically balanced or politically unbalanced - it’s supposed to strive for and be as completely apolitical as possible.


Democurmudgeon - One Party Wisconsin? Sen. Fitzgerald’s Crony Government.
