Mahoney Steps Aside

Smart move.

And a twisted signs as to how incestuous Dane Co. politics are.

Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney says he has turned the state supreme court investigation over to the Chief Deputy.

In a statement Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff Mahoney says, “Although as Sheriff, I honored the request of the Capitol Police to conduct an investigation into the Supreme Court incident on June 13, 2011, I turned the case over to the Chief Deputy.”

Mahoney says the Chief Deputy then assigned the case to the Captain of Field Services, who in turn assigned a team of detectives and supervisors to investigate the case and oversee the investigation.

“As the Sheriff I have no role in the assignment of detectives and supervisors or overseeing the investigation.”

On Monday, the Capitol Police Department turned over the criminal investigation into state supreme court justice David Prosser’s alleged choking of fellow justice Ann Walsh Bradley.

As been talked about since this morning on talk radio and conservative blogs in the state, Mahoney endorsed JoAnne Kloppenburg over Prosser in this spring’s Supreme Court election, and both endorsed and appears in a commercial in 2008 for Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson; who would be a witness in any potential case if it got to that level.

    Come on Kevin,

    You wouldn’t say how ‘incestous’ politics are in say, Waupaca County, or Shawano County, where both the DAs and Sherriff’s endorsed Prosser?

    This whole ginned up thing is pure silliness to get Conservative Supreme Court Justice Prosser painted as a victim. 

    Isn’t it weird that Prosser’s main detractors effectively sound like every domestic abuser in the world…

    Mahoney and Kloppenburg had the same campaign manager too. “Incestuous”
    enough for you there?

    Oh come on kevin. 

    How many people have hired Brian Nemoir, or big daddy Shimming? 

    I mean, how many professional campaigns have you worked on? 

    So Andy Potts is now working for Nygren while on a break from Darling’s office, is that ‘incestuous?’ 

  • Kevin was an “opposition researcher” on RoJo’s campaign, dontcha know!

    Nevermind that that lofty title put him one rung above the interns who fetch coffee and answer phones….

    To say that because Kloppenberg (effectively a Dane County Candidate) hired someone who worked for Dave Mahoney, Kathleen Falk, and others in Dane County has created an “Incestuous” relationship between those candidates is intellectually dishonest, but hey the right wing spin machine continues unfettered.
