We all know that JB Van Hollen has announced he will not seek re-election to his office of Attorney General of Wisconsin. This took many people by surprise and everyone trying to figure out why. There are even some of the Kool Aid Drinkers that think he could possibly run for the Supreme Court.
There is however, one prominent republican that does not think much of JB Van Hollen's ability. That person is non other than Governor Scott Walker. Scott Walker was recently asked why he has not issued any pardons. His response - Because JB Van Hollen has been to inept.
"If you pick one there's thousands of other examples out there of people who may not have the media or other outlets behind them, who would be in an equal position who probably have a compelling case to be made that we don't yet know about," said Walker in an interview with WKOW.
According to Walker, under the supervision of JB Van Hollen, the Wisconsin Justice Department has falsely or needlessly imprisoned "thousands" of Wisconsinites unnecessarily. That is not much of a ringing endorsement for any kind of future run for office.
Lest we forget and think Scott Walker is the hero here, as our friends at MalContent point out - He is not:
Walker states there are a lot of people with compelling cases for pardons, so we should pardon none of them. This is a not a logically compelling argument.
Wrongfully convicted? What matters is whether the media or other outlets are behind them, suggests Walker, a bizarre position.
What about innocent Green Bay ex-cop, John Maloney; the innocent Don Miller of Hurley just released on parole? and the innocent
And there are surely many more innocents incarcerated
I would take it a step further and point out that this proves Scott Walker is lazy and has no interest in doing thereal work it takes to be a successful Governor. He thinks there are thousands of innocent people in prison but unless he can watch a 30 second new sclip on the Fox, he has no interest in trying to figure out if they are guilty or innocent.
There is no money in it for him. Besides they cant vote anyway.
