He Who Was Not Named

Email date: 12/21/10

The E-Lert we sent yesterday began with a reference to “Former Assembly Speaker” but did not go on to name him. He Who Was Not Named is, of course, Scott Jensen. Our apologies for the error.

For newspaper stories on the Jensen plea deal announced yesterday, go here and here. For radio and television coverage, go here and here.

Jensen called it a “bright sunshiny day.” In an editorial published this morning, the Wisconsin State Journal called it an ”early Christmas present“ for Jensen and a ”sweetheart deal.”

Accompanying the story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is an online poll gauging public reaction to the plea deal.
