Roys straight, no chaser
Naw, Mongo straight.
– Blazing Saddles
Poor State Rep Helen Kelda Roys. She realized that her decision not to be a lesbian robbed her of the authentic progressive pedigree necessary to be the next congressman from Dane County. She tried to improve her image on that issue, but to no avail. Her appeal to the fringe of the Madison left as the more authentic leftwing radical hasn’t lifted her campaign, either. The result is a 29% lead for State Rep Mark Pocan.
Now Roys has been endorsed by former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager, whose claim to fame is driving off the side of the road after one too many (or so) in a state vehicle, and then having a whole bunch of questions raised about where that state vehicle had been.
Maybe Roys can get former State Rep Jeff Wood to campaign for her next?
