So What Were They Copying?

Interesting line caught my attention in the AP story about the new changes Senate Org kicked in today.  After getting rid of direct deposit last week for the AWOL “Badger 14,” today the trio of Ellis, Fitzgerald, and Grothman changed the supervisory offset for Senate Democratic staffers to the Majority Leader (It’s a little hard for their bosses to sign their time cards being in Illinois you know) and then they had their copier access restricted.

Fitzgerald is also not allowing Democratic lawmakers or their staff members to use Capitol copiers, saying there has been some “highly unusual usage” of the machines in recent days.

Beyond the logistical headache of having to ask the Senate Clerk every time they need to make a Xerox (see my friend Moe Lane about that), there is a rather legitimate question as to what, if any, copies the staff of the AWOL 14 Senate Democrats could be making?

There’s been reports of all sorts of zany activity that’s been going on in the state capitol over the past two weeks.  The State’s War Memorial was turned into an info booth.  A third floor hearing room was turned into “Protest Central.”  Madison Assemblyman Brett Hulsey apparently transformed his office into a dormitory.  What’s to say the State Senate Democratic staff hasn’t been abusing their copier privileges making flyers and the like for the protesters who took over the Capitol?  Perhaps an ethics investigation is in order?

It’s not like their bosses have been there giving them actual district work they needed done?

    “THERE is a rather legitimate” and “It’s not like THEIR bosses have been…”

    Sorry, and “So What Were They CopYing?”. Sleepy this morning?

  • Yes, I know my proof-reading skills suck. Not new news to me.

  • Actually, any Xerox technician can find out EXACTLY what’s been copied. The machines retain a digital-image of its copying work.
