Are you suggesting there needs to be a Ben Doe investigation?

So, the question is, if Sarah Manski knew that her husband had a good chance of getting into school out there, and she knew she would go with him, then why did she run for school board in the first place? And while she was running, why didn't she disclose that possibility?
Both Manskis have put transparency and concern about the process at the center of their careers. So why was it lacking here?
But you've got to wonder whether uncontested elections are good for Madison, good for Wisconsin, or even, in the end, good for Mark Pocan. It is not Pocan's fault that so many races are done deals. To his credit, he has made it a priority to field a Democratic candidate in every Assembly district in Wisconsin.
But for the Madison area, the reality remains the same. With no contest, there is no election. With no election, there is no accountability. And without accountability, well, who are these Madison Democrats representing, anyway?
