OWN Now Led by Crook

(Enter the Hate Mail!)

Gee, what is this for One Wisconsin Now, their third Executive Director in a year?

At this rate, that outfit will surpass the number of campaign managers Fred Thompson and John McCain have had combined by next summer.
Perennial Capitol aide Scot Ross is leaving the building's marble hallways to be executive director of One Wisconsin Now.

One Wisconsin Now, which describes its mission as an effort to "advance progressive values and workable ideas and strategies" through policy, communication and networking, was formed in 2006 ahead of the state's gubernatorial election.

Ross ran for the Democratic nomination for Secretary of State last September but lost to incumbent Democrat Doug LaFollette. This year he's been working for Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton); prior political stints included work for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager and Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk. He also worked for the now-abolished State Senate Democratic Caucus.

Of course, some know Scot Ross for a much more...infamous deed.
Former Assembly Democratic Caucus aide Scot Ross told investigators that for five months in 2000, he worked practically full-time on campaign issues including the first campaign of Rep. Terry Van Akkeren (D-Sheboygan).
That's right, the Democratic Poster Child for the Caucus Scandal.

(What were the legal fees again Scot? $3,000 or was it $4,000?)

The BBA would like to thank OWN for completely defusing any and all ethics charges they might level in the next election cycle against Republicans by their recent pity hire.

Thanks guys!
