As for Stu having the guts to say what he thinks, I'll have to take your word for it, b. As you probably know, I'm a relatively recent immigrant to Madison so I'm still learning about who's who. I've gathered that Stu Levitan has been something of a celebrity in these parts for three decades or so. Would you call him, what, a Madison rock star?
Whatever. The Stu Levitan I know directly is Stu Levitan, the foron, who trades in desperate election day rumors
and then tries to weasel his way out
of it when his actions are scrutinized.
Want to know a Dem/Prog Wisconsin politician I have respect for?
Fred Risser sat across his desk from me and told me squarely he favors raising taxes on Wisconsin citizens. Looked me straight in the eye and said it without apology. I think he was dead wrong but I have complete respect for him as a politician who shoots straight.
Stu Levitan, you sir, are no Fred Risser.
