We may find out, as it seems there's frightfully little interest on the part of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to get to the bottom of who leaked the "police" report on "voter fraud" that the RPW has been using as a rallying point on the need for voter ID.
Daniel Bice's column on Sunday, revealing that the report was issued without the chief's knowledge, gave the Brawler hope. But since then: Nothing. Perhaps the Journal Sentinel is just waiting for Favremania to pass so it can give the story the space it deserves.
The Brawler has said for some time that the Journal Sentinel has glossed over the biggest political story in Wisconsin: the effort by the RPW to suppress the black vote through any means necessary. It never looked at the machinations behind the RPW's scare tactics of "phantom addresses" (which, to its credit, the report demolishes). It pointed out how former RPW big wig Rick Wiley urged the White House to can Steven Biskupic for not vigorously pursuing voter fraud cases (after much prompting from the Brawler, who even cited Wiley as the likely culprit weeks before Bice confirmed it). But it never dug deeper.
No rational person can think the report -- with its conclusions calling for radical change to how elections are conducted in this state -- was released for any other reason than to help the Republicans. There's little doubt some in the RPW knew about the report. It's hard to imagine that there wasn't some level of coordination to issue the document -- which, mind you, was paid for by the good people of Milwaukee. And all this went on without the police chief's knowledge.
I dunno. Some newspapers might think this is a story worth pursuing.
