Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney's Ethics Violation Crap-0-La

Postby Harris Lemberg » Tue Mar 31, 2015 7:17 am

The Actual Ad where Sheriff David Mahoney appears for like 3 seconds

You got to be joking? This is an ethics violation? No freaking way. Give it a rest.

Who's saying it's an ethics violation?

I thought it was weird to see him in that ad, like it's supposed to make me think Bradley is more law-y because she has the sheriff standing next to her? But he IS an elected official so can give / receive endorsements with the rest of them. It's a big "so what."

you must be kidding! It's nearly as bad as the Walker scandal!!!!!!!!

Though Dane county ordinance does say you can't use county uniforms or vehicles for any political purpose, which is pretty clearly happening in the ad. So, yeah. Stop being naughty Mr. Sheriff...

Ah I hadn't seen that. Yeah it was for him to wear his uniform and stand in front of his vehicle. Bradley should have known that, too. But really it's a big nothing.

First time I've seen the ad since YMBJ mentioned it in the other thread. They're really gonna compare campaigning for an extended period of time to someone in an ad for a few seconds. What a joke.

I'd actually expect the Mahoney to know it more than Bradley. He would be expected to make sure his employees don't violate county regs, where as Bradley would only be looking at it in reviewing a case.

But yeah, I looked it up in the other thread, and it doesn't even rise to the level of misdemeanor. At worst if the county ethics board looks at it (and to be fair, if someone files a complaint, they should), he could be fined up to $1000 as a civil forfeiture.

As opposed to several felonies and misdemeanors that have been committed by Walker's buddies... Yeah, completely comparable!

Well, Mr. Lemberg I suspect this may be an issue that IS for pointing at something that is not. Nice fake - the lemmings are following.
I would like to see this engineering as impressive - but it pains me to see how easily it goes down.
