Reformer Ellis Blasts Doyle

Doyle's announcement quoted Sen. Mike Ellis (R-Neenah) praising the package. But in an interview, Ellis blasted it, saying he didn't think the package was comprehensive enough.Ellis accused Doyle of picking off ideas from other lawmakers and said Doyle was being disingenuous because of earlier efforts to block campaign finance reform. "He's trying to repair his image when he did everything he could for four years to kill reform," Ellis said. Ellis suggested Doyle was motivated to push ethics reforms because "he's under the microscope for alleged ethical lapses." And, Ellis again: "Suddenly, in an election year, when he is being investigated…the governor gets religion and starts to pose for holy pictures. Give me a break."
