And "WHY isn't he our mascot?," the GOP-wingers cry in Milwaukee?
Um, maybe because he's working under the LAW! JB deserves a lot more credit and respect than the GOP has given him. They better shut up and put out more statments like this.
Chairman Priebus Applauds Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's Leadershipby RPW Communications"It was Van Hollen's leadership that reduced the backlog at the State Crime Lab, and we can count on him to continue to making Wisconsin a safer place to live."
MADISON – Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement in recognition of Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen’s leadership at the Department of Justice:
“It’s simply appalling that the Department of Corrections has dropped the ball, neglecting to collect data samples from nearly 12,000 criminals. I’m heartened to know we have a leader like Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to bring about the real reforms necessary to correct this problem.
Van Hollen has been leading the way on law enforcement reforms and restoring integrity to the Department of Justice. He has made crime fighting a focus once again at the DOJ. It was Van Hollen's leadership that reduced the backlog at the State Crime Lab, and we can count on him to continue to making Wisconsin a safer place to live."
