    Well, it looks like the ex-Senate Majority Leader Chuck (the jailbird) Chvala (Pronounced almost like Koala, like the bear...) is petitioning to keep his law license.

    http://www.jsonline.com/news/state/feb06/390603.asp

    In case anyone does not know who he is, he singlehandedly defeated CCW in WI in 2002 by improperly ignoring an OVERWHELMING voice vote to call the PPA bill to the floor for a vote. If it weren't for this FELON, we'd have had CCW in WI for four years now...

    'ol Chucky did this knowing full well:

    - That the session was about to end for the year.
    - That the PPA (WI's CCW bill) had enough votes to pass.
    - That the then Republican Governor McCallum would have signed the bill.
    - That the '02 fall Governor's race stood a good chance to put the viruently anti-gun Jim Doyle into office.

    Well, 'ol Chucky got convicted of using state employees and time for campaign activities, which is highly illegal. He's currently doing 9 months of "soft time" in a work-release prision. However, IMO, seeing a politician do any time is signfificant…

    He now wants his law license back. How sad.

    I suggest that anyone in WI who remembers 'ol Chucky as fondly as I do, politely write the WI Court System: Office of Lawyer Regulation, and let them know how you feel. Leave CCW out of it, as it would only confuse the letter. Stick to ethics and corruption.

    Thanks for the heads up, AJ Dual. I'll definitely draft a letter this evening.

    All anti's are in my sights. My keyboard has night sights! :evil:

    I'll be drafting a letter as well.

    What really steams me about Chvala's case is that the prosecutors let him plea bargain on two lesser charges before the trial got to the extortion phase. If he'd been convicted on those charges, that would have left it open for the feds to go after him on interstate money-laundering charges (which they were looking at.

    If the trial had gone through all the felony extortion counts, he'd be doing ninety years, not nine months.

    Of course, the prosecutor was a Democrat and the trial was held in Madison. The only way they could have stacked things more in his favor would be to have the jury be composed of his former staffers.

    Criminals have every reason in the world to fear CCW and shall issue.

    I was listening to WIBA last week, and apparently ol' Chucky's lawyer is trying to get the 2,000 dollar fine reduced...

    As if he didn't get enough of a virtual slap on the wrist as it was...
