Did Van Hollen cover for sexting DA?Holy moley. And it goes on like that. I guess they are not big fans.
[Wisconsin] Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen should welcome and cooperate fully with an independent investigation of charges that he attempted to protect a political ally who stands accused of gross misconduct.
To do otherwise would invite suspicion that Van Hollen engaged in activities that would merit his removal as attorney general and sanctions that would almost certainly include the suspension of his license to practice law in Wisconsin. That suspicion would destroy the credibility of the attorney general.
There is no question that Van Hollen has the right to be presumed innocent* until an investigation is completed.
Yet today's Capital Times editorial admonishes voters to ignore negative campaign ads — "flying mud" — in the governor's race!
Seems they're pretty good at flinging it themselves.
This should be an interesting encounter on Oct. 7.
* That's generous of them, at least.
