Aaron Rodriguez, writing at The Hispanic Conservative, has a post up calling for County Board Chairman Lee Holloway to step down. Rodriguez cites the over-the-top rhetoric* that Holloway had used at the beginning of the budgeting session and his continuing troubles with keeping his rental properties up to code as the reasons for his calling Holloway out.
But I am anxiously awaiting at least three more posts from Rodriguez.
One post would be calling for Supervisor Paul Cesarz to step down. After all, Cesarz has failed to pay his taxes. On top of that, he is being sued due to not paying on his debts with his house-flipping scheme.
Obviously, if Holloway is unqualified due to his problems keeping his properties up to code, Cesarz is equally unqualified, since he can't keep up on his properties, his debts or his taxes. And don't even get me going on the large negative balance in his campaign war chest. What's up with that?
Rodriguez' second post will surely be calling for Supervisor Joe Sanfelippo to stand down. Sanfelippo proudly aligned himself with the group whose members assault women and their husbands. Sanfelippo's questionable attitude, especially towards women, when he insults another supervisor, telling her "Perhaps your memory is going out," among other things.
Sanfelippo has also insulted a mentally ill constituent and started to tell lies about her on the very day her mother passed away.
And, of course, there is the simple fact that he flat out lied to all of his constituents about the recently passed resolution to study the impact of extending health care benefits to domestic partners of eligible county workers.
Again, if Holloway's behaviors make him unfit for office, Sanfelippo's behaviors and bigoted attitude should keep him out of office for the rest of his life.
But the post that I am really anxiously waiting for is the one where Rodriguez calls for Scott Walker to step down.
Surely, if anyone is called on to step down, it is Scott Walker. He has repeatedly shown that he cannot effectively manage Milwaukee County and run for governor at the same time. And not only is he incapable of that regard, Walker took it beyond the pale when he played political gains with 180 county workers, their families and the poor, elderly and/or disabled clients those workers serve.
Walker has also been caught in many lies and hypocrisies, showing that he is not credible and cannot be trusted. Walker also showed himself to be a bigot just this morning, when he lied about the cost of a study regarding extending health care to domestic partners.
Obviously, someone that would put his own political aspirations before the community that he is supposed to be serving and even before his own credibility isn't suitable for such an important office such as county executive.
Yes, I am anxiously awaiting for Aaron Rodriguez to write these posts. And I know he will.
You see, Rodriguez takes pride in his writing and considers himself to be fair and open-minded. To omit these three other posts would belie that self-description, and show him to be just another hypocritical, right wing partisan hack.
*The CRG mailing announcing the Walker campaign rally was indeed race-baiting.
