Oops, skipped a word
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel describes Mordecai Lee as, “professor of governmental affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In the 1970s and ’80s, he served in the state Assembly and Senate.”
Ahem. As Lee once represented my family in the state legislature, let me remind the newspaper that he is a former Democractic member of the state Assembly and Senate.
As for what former Governor Tommy Thompson (R) would do, he would have probably ignored Mordecai Lee.
(There is no one more beloved by a Democrat than a former Republican leader.)
