And yet... she did!


Let's review sno's comment:

The word "just" seems to be significant, yet you completely ignored it.

Depends on just what the meaning of "just" is.

And it was Susan Weber Wright who said that oral sex wasn't sex when asked by Clinton's attorney David Schippers. It's even on video. The Clinton Cock Hunt continues into 2012... 20 plus years.

MILWAUKEE - A 13th person has been granted immunity in a secret Milwaukee County investigation that has already led to criminal charges against six people close to Gov. Scott Walker.

Online court records say a judge on Thursday granted Fran McLaughlin's request for immunity.

McLaughlin served as Walker's county spokeswoman from 2007 to 2010, when Walker was the Milwaukee County executive.

Depends on whether you spend your days willfully and purposely trying to misunderstand what other people write, or you actually have a life.

Werwie, and now McLaughlin -- two spokesmen with immunity. Nobody's closer to the inner workings of a politician's office, even if not in a decision-making role, than their press representatives. That must be getting uncomfortablly close, Scott.

Y'know bdog, you keep trying for zingers and coming up with yawners.

What exactly are you trying to say?

If you mean sno is trying to misunderstand you, could you come up with an instance where that actually happened?

From where I sit, misunderstanding bdog these days is pretty much the default.It doesn't require any trying.

Former Walker aide due for final pre-trial hearing

A former aide to Gov. Scott Walker when Walker was the Milwaukee County executive is due in court for a final pre-trial hearing.


Timothy D. Russell has pleaded not guilty to three embezzlement charges. He's accused of stealing more than $21,000 from a nonprofit organization that Walker asked him to lead.
...
Russell is one of six Walker aides and associates charged with crimes. The charges stem from a secret John Doe investigation.

That's the 13th immunity that has been granted, which I find a bit troubling. Why are so many people being let off the hook when they claim that their testimony may incriminate them? It somewhat lends itself to the "witchhunt" argument if prosecutors are willing to forgive and forget 13 criminals just to get to Walker. And what can criminal number 13 tell us that we couldn't get from the previous 12?
