Sen. Dale Schultz (R) stands tall

Republican Sen. Dale Schultz disses conservative talk radio

Of all the partisan heresy state Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center, has committed in recent years, from his vote against Act 10 to his recent opposition to Gov. Scott Walker’s mining bill, there is perhaps no action that better demonstrates his detachment from his party than his recent diss of Milwaukee talk radio, particularly conservative talk radio host Charlie Sykes, star of WTMJ-AM.

“(I)t is clear that WTMJ in southeastern Wisconsin has every legislator in that area shaking in their boots,” said Schultz on Tuesday during an on-air interview about the mining bill with John “Sly” Sylvester of WEKZ-FM in Monroe.

He continued: “I think it's humiliating when legislators have to be hauled in there to swear allegiance. My leader (Sen. Scott Fitzgerald) had to go in and tell Charlie Sykes that we weren't going to allow any new taxes — and that all came off of a press release from Grover Norquist."


Why doesn't Schultz switch parties? Does he really think there is room for a moderate/RINO in today's GOP?

He's the Republican's Stu Levitan.

I'd love to see those two in charge. I'm dead serious.

Screw the party affiliations / positions. Give me people with great character and they will do the right things, even if it means sometimes changing their minds.

Lol. I like Dale Schultz, but pardon me if I don't believe this love he's getting on here. Look at the things he's voted for.

Considering his party, he is a statesman, even if his voting record is not pure. He is one of a very few politicians I have any respect for.

Right wing goes after Dale Schultz

“His politics are more to the left; he is left of center,” Dennis Lundell, chair of the Grant County GOP, told Media Trackers.

Well said bdog. Now all we need are honest politicians who refuse to accept money from specialist/lobbyist groups whose focus is for the betterment of big corporations only. It would be fantastic if we had politicians who have integrity and moral ethics in public office who focus on representing WE the people. We'd be much better off. Sadly, there is too much money involved in buying politicians to pass corporate sponsored legislation at the present time for this to become reality. The American Legislative Exchange Counsel (ALEC) is responsible for a large part of this. Love or hate them, they are very well organized and VERY capable of tossing cash to politicians who are willing to pass their legislation.
