GOP also lobbied elections board

According to the Associated Press, Rick Wiley, head of the state Republican Party, spoke with Republican board member John Savage prior to the vote. Reportedly, Savage had been spreading the word to others at a party fundraiser that he didn't think the vote would favor Green keeping the PAC money.

As I said the other day, I would've been more suprised if supporters from both campaigns hadn't contacted board members on such an important ruling. It's revealing that this story didn't come from the Journal Sentinel, but instead the AP. The fact that the paper didn't report on whether or not the Green camp had lobbied the board as well is either a sign of bias, or another sign of the deteriorating quality of the paper that began with the merger of the Journal and the Sentinel.

Xoff has more on the story.
