As Wigderson points out, Larson isn’t even trying to be subtle about how he bought Wirch’s vote.
Just before Thanksgiving, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson appointed Senator Jennifer Shilling (D–La Crosse) and Senator Bob Wirch (D–Somers) to serve on the Joint Committee on Finance (JFC). This powerful committee is at the heart of the state budget process and is a coveted appointment.
Wirch was the likely Democrat who promised to vote for Senator Jon Erpenbach for minority leader but cast his vote instead for Larson.
So much for subtlety.
By the way, why does Larson hate African Americans? State Senator Lena Taylor is not happy.
So are we allowed to accuse Larson of being racist and anti-woman? Or is that accusation only reserved for Republicans who oppose Rice as SOS?
