MESSAGE TO JIM DOYLE FROM ED GARVEY


So, with all this money flowing into politics, the Doyle people will argue there is nothing wrong with tribes spending millions to offset Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce contributions to the Republican candidates and personal fortunes used to purchase offices. Nothing, I guess, unless you feel a twinge of nostalgia for democracy. Perhaps, just perhaps, Jim Doyle will wake up one morning and ask himself if this money chase feels good or bad. Does the appearance of government for sale cheapen all in government, good and bad, Republican or Democrat?

Governor, do one simple thing. Announce that no entity or individual doing business with the state may contribute to your campaign. That includes the tribes, Accenture, road builders, lobbyists and ... well, you get the picture. It might cost you the election but the current system will cost you your soul.
