    "Of course, she was acting on her own", and risked prison as a mid-level paper-pusher in state government, just for the hell of it. :)

    She seemed genuinely shocked at the verdict. I guess Doyle dosen't have as much pull with the Feds as she was told... Methinks she should have talked. Now if she tries to get a deal on sentencing, she risks proving that she comitted perjury. However, the FBI is still interested in the case.

    There's still a slim chance she'll sing in exchange for a sentencing recomendation and a perjury immunity agreement...

    Even if she doesn't directly implicate Doyle the fact remains that he has created an atmosphere in his administration where behavior like this is commonplace and encouraged - he's sleazy, sleazy, sleazy.

    "As I have stated before, I have zero tolerance for ethical lapses in government. When public servants abuse the public's trust, they forfeit their rights to continue in the state's employ."

    Yeah, Guv. That's why we want you out of office. We don't like "ethical lapses," either, and you've sure committed a lot of them.

    I believe I'd be more inclined to say Doyle simply is an ethical lapse.

    When I daydream... I see Doyle being wisked away in cuffs with that, "I'm not a crook" look on his face....

    Wow, that was so beautiful it brought a tear to my eye. <sniffle>

    My parents, who are in the late 80's, are lifelong FDR Democrats. My dad claims that he voted for a Republican once, but I don't believe him. ;)

    At any rate, they're both fed up with Doyle's corruption and will not vote for him again.

    I take that as a positive sign.

    Also positive is the fact that Georgia Thompson still has time before her sentencing to cop a plea bargain. Since I don't see anything in what she did benefitting her personally, I really think she's going to do some serious thinking about what 20 years in prison could be like.

    Also, did anybody notice that Doyle's campaign manager, Marc Marotta, is out of town and not available for comment? Sort of like back in February when Doyle hid in Afghanistan when these stories were about to break.

    Still, though, it makes me sick that this woman is looking at serious prison time for fudging the bidding process for the travel office, while Chuck Chvala is only getting a few months at home. And he extorted $1.14 million from lobbyists.

    A great observation:
    And now this from today's Journal/Sentinel article:
    I find that quote just amazing because now Doyle is distancing himself from Marc Marotta - his own secretary of administration and campaign manager. Everyone in Madison knows that these two are tied at the hip. For Doyle to 'pretend' that he doesn't know what Marotta has or hasn't done is just ridiculous. It shows the lengths to which Doyle will go to protect himself - that he'd throw a friend in front of a bus if it would help his political career.

    Peg Lautenschlager is looking better and better compared to the rest of the administration- at least she's only a drunk who abuses state vehicle priviladges.:evil:

    You can buy better lawyers with $1.14 million than with the gratitude of your supervisors. :evil:

    FireBreather01, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that Doyle is distancing himself from Marotta. These stories lose their luster quickly; by being unavailable for comment, Marotta won't say anything that can come back to haunt him later.

    This is just Classic Political Shenanigans 101: when you're in trouble, be somewhere else. It worked for Nixon when he went to China, and worked for every other president I can think of.

    For Marotta, though, foreign travel is not a real option. So where did he go? Cudahy?
