Boys and Girls indeed!
Governor Doyle, fresh from a news conference where he announced a deal with Republicans to reform ethics and elections, tells us that his inaugural gala will be more like the kick-off to a third term than a celebration of the start of his second term. In my blog the other day, I listed the titles you may purchase if you want good seats and influence. For example, you can be a "Director" for a $50,000 contribution to the Boys & Girls Club, a tax exempt, 501(c)(3). In addition, the governor and lieutenant governor will fly all over the state on January 2 to celebrate. Will the Boys & Girls Clubs, who will pay for the gala, pick up the tab for the fly-around? Should be interesting.
Also, our not-so-lame-duck-governor-thinking-of-term-three will lauch a Web site that was really launched during the campaign--One Wisconsin. The funding for the site is none of your business. How do I know? I asked.
Ah, yes, ethics reform. Wonder why the People's Legislature believes there is much to be done? Like campaign finance reform.
See you at the real gala or a mini-gala in Wausau.
