What is going on? Seriously…
So in case you missed it, Mayor Soglin, on September 12th, asked Brett Hulsey to apologize for wild accusations against the Madison police department.
In part, Mayor Soglin’s statement said:
Brett Hulsey owes city employees, particularly the Madison Police Department, the City Attorney’s Office, and my office an apology for suggesting that anyone would compromise their professional standards or integrity in order to see him cited. Hulsey suggested that perhaps his support of my opponent in the last election was the motivator. Tens of thousands of Madisonians supported Dave Cieslewicz. There is nothing unusual about Mr. Hulsey – he neither merits nor deserves special treatment.
In one news report, the City Parks Superintendent is quoted as saying that there were no previous written reports on Hulsey. That is correct. Another journalist concluded that meant there were no reports on Hulsey. That is incorrect. In 2008, a Madison lifeguard reported to a high ranking staff member that the lifeguard was uncomfortable with Hulsey’s presence at a city beach.
And! In one really key statement Mayor Soglin points out something, which maybe you didn’t realize (I did not notice it):
It should be noted that when one views Lake Mendota from the site in question during the late afternoon or early evening of July 4, the sun is not over any portion of the lake but behind the viewer’s left shoulder.
The location of the sun is key because of Mr. Hulsey’s statement in the original incident:
In Vosburg’s report, Hulsey also tells the detective that once on shore he tried to take a photo of the sunset and a sailboat, and that the children were in his field of vision. Hulsey said he deleted the photo after the children said they didn’t want to be in the picture.
Ummmmmmm….so did Mr. Hulsey claim he took a picture of the sunset and didn’t include the sun?
Also, yesterday, September 17th, Sly in the Morning has the latest on Mr. Hulsey’s response: WAIT WAIT WAIT – Brett Hulsey (State Rep. from the west side) wants you to follow him to the Mayor’s office
In this latest Splashgate episode, we’ve learned that Brett Hulsey has asked his fellow lawmakers to join him in a parade from the Gallery to the City-County building to take his concerns about being attacked for political reasons by Mayor Soglin.
If you remember, Brett was charged with disorderly conduct after an explosive July 4th incident involving a young boy and two young girls that were dangerously splashing around in Lake Mendota.
Hahaha…this story just get stranger and stranger…so you gonna march on Mayor Soglin with Brett Hulsey?
