Judge less expensive than plumber

Dan Bice's John Doe investigation update:*
The 69-year-old retired jurist Neal Nettesheim is paid the same rate as reserve judges, who earn $445.15 a day.
That's about 55 bucks an hour, or $15 per hour less than a court-appointed defense attorney or $240 per hour less than James Troupis.

Even Scott Walker's harshest critics can't get too excited about that.

* The comments are an hilarious reminder that this is what Walker's top aide in Milwaukee County, Darlene Wink, spent her days contributing to. "Coordinating career politician Scott Walker's constituents," I believe was the formal job description for Darlene Wink's "sock puppet" shenanigans.
