I don’t even know what to make of all this…
So first this happened: Wisconsin state Rep. Brett Hulsey pleads no contest to disorderly conduct charge
And I thought it was kind of odd…I felt like I only got part of the story. Brett Hulsey then took to Sly’s show to explain himself.
And I figured that that was the end of it. But oh no, there is more! It’s apparently a big conspiracy: Rep. Brett Hulsey levels serious accusations against Madison mayor and Police Dept.
Last week, Madison Rep. Brett Hulsey pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge for engaging in what police called “horseplay” with a 9 year-old boy at a Madison beach. Now Hulsey insists the charge is part of plot against him by Mayor Paul Soglin, and he claims the Madison Police Department is in on it.
No word on if the UN and Agenda 21 are involved…
Now, if the story of Mr. Hulsey blaming law enforcement for his troubles sounds familiar, well he used a similar line before against the Dane County Deputies…I guess all the local police are out to get him apparently? As I said at the time:
Mr. Hulsey didn’t work so well with the Dane Deputies Association (emphasis mine):
And then Brett Hulsey arrived, flyers in hand. Hulsey gave a short speech announcing his candidacy, and made a point of discussing his past relations with the Sheriff Deputies Union. In a choked-up voice, Hulsey alleged the Deputies had threatened his family, and then he said that he kept the door of his car open every morning when he turns on the ignition, to make sure he can get out if it explodes. He said he was only half-joking.
My response is the same as last time, if Mr. Hulsey thinks he was wronged, file some sort of complaint.
See, sometimes politicians say things for political reasons. If a politician were to file a complaint, they might get asked for proof or evidence. If a politician goes to the media and makes some unsupported wild accusations, the media will dutifully repeat it and there isn’t much pressure on the accuser to produce evidence. Although I’m delighted to note that WTDY noted that these were indeed serious accusations. But yeah, I don’t think Mr. Hulsey is going put anything to paper.
Did you know that Brett Hulsey has an opponent in the general election? Jonathan Dedering is running against Mr. Hulsey. Mr. Hulsey is in a pretty safe seat, but just in case you aren’t feeling his candidacy, you do have options…
