she went running to Dan Bice complaining of hostility from her fellow supervisors.
Her complaint broke down to three things:
- She alleges that was denied permission by Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic to send out a press release for a town hall she wanted to hold,
- She alleges she was forced to lie about allegedly being denied sending the release by Dimitrijevic, and
- She alleges that Supervisor John Weishan yelled at her, making her feel "bruised" after their discussion.
It took me maybe all of fifteen seconds to see that Alexander sent her press release for the town hall. She also sent a joint release with Milwaukee Alderman Jim Bohl advocating for the destruction of all local governments in favor of regional ones.
In fact, her web page shows that Alexander has had no problems whatsoever sending out a press release with almost as much frequency as Scott Walker or Bob Donovan.
As for Alexander's second allegation, she got caught in a lie and tried to play it this way:
When word of the kerfuffle began to circulate, Alexander misled the Journal Sentinel by saying there were no problems. She retracted that explanation last week, saying Dimitrijevic urged her to mislead the media.Does Alexander really expect us to believe that after sending out press releases for a year, she is suddenly unable to do anything on her own and is getting bullied by Dimitrijevic?
"I was told to send that to you," Alexander said.
Dimitrijevic disputed Alexander's remarks.
"As for any emails she's sending or retracting, I have no control over any of them," Dimitrijevic said in an email. "Supervisor Alexander writes and sends them at her own discretion."
I wonder if she also blames Dimitrijevic for writing glowing accolades of Scott Walker during her campaign and then suddenly and inexplicably scrubbing them.
In other words, Alexander is no stranger to going back on her words and making things up as she goes along.
As for the alleged run in with Weishan, I'm almost lost for words.
Did Alexander really expect that if she came in telling her colleagues they suck, that they don't deserve to get paid or have any authority at all, they would carry her on their shoulders and throw a parade for her? Considering the way she trash talked Tracey Corder during her election campaign, I really doubt that she is all that tender-hearted.
Furthermore, it seems unlikely that she is all that concerned about a hostile work environment. This is especially true given that she works with several LGBT community members, yet did not hesitate to proudly support the anti-gay Chick-Fil-A Day in Racine.
Given the evidence, including her long history of lying, bigotry and deception, it is shockingly apparent that this is just another example of her dishonesty.
Even the fact that she is willing to sacrifice herself to help blow up county government is not a shocker. Her own website says that she wants to "rebrand" county government, like it's a sort of business. Alexander doesn't even hold enough regard for the county or her constituents to hold her election day parties in the county, much less her own district.
I would suggest that Alexander focus on building up her community and trying to get some economic activity going on in her district - things that the people want, deserve and sorely need - instead of trying to tear down the rest of the county.
