Scot Ross, former executive director of the liberal group One Wisconsin Now, has been appointed to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission.
Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling, D-La Crosse, announced on Thursday that Ross had been appointed to the position previously held by Tamara Packard. The term will expire in May 2024.
It’s not just that Ross is a lefty attack dog, it’s that he has a history of being one of the most vile and dishonest politicos in Wisconsin. I can’t blame Ross. He is what he is. But for Shilling to appoint him to a board responsible for upholding ethics is a travesty and a deep stain on her character.
