Dear Editor:That this was even published, citing "a string of things," leaves me wanting an explanation from the Cap Times. And furthermore, hey Lynn, why don't you get off your ass and do something about it if you're so upset.
I wholeheartedly agree with your opinions on J.B. Van Hollen! I've long been wondering if somebody might start a recall petition to oust him from his office. He's done a string of things, including pushing out career employees (who even had great reviews of job performance), but this lawsuit filed before the election was nothing but a tool to suppress the vote. It's the only way Republicans can win, so that's become their mantra -- "voter fraud." But for an attorney general of a state -- the top officer of the state Justice Department, which SHOULD stand for justice for ALL (not just for Republicans!) -- to try at the last minute to suppress the vote for political reasons is unconscionable!
And where does he get off being co-chair of John McCain's campaign anyway? That sends the wrong message -- that he is only fighting for one side, just like the federal Justice Department. So who can trust anything the Justice Department does now?
It's time to RECALL Van Hollen! Can someone PLEASE start a recall petition?

This is why I can't handle liberal Madison's "activists." Whine, whine, complain, complain. But when you're really upset, you're still asking for someone else to do the work or pay for the cost.
In the meantime, I'd like to say that 1) Van Hollen in no way attempted or was able of suppressing your precious vote for Obama (who won Dane county 3-1), 2)has made decisions that have alienated his own Republican party members when he's chosen NOT to make the office one of political moves, but of upholding the LAW, and 3)look at who was pulling for Obama- our GOVERNOR.
Get a clue.
