Green vs. State Elections Board

The State Elections Board voted to settle the claim that the Mark Green Campaign illegally converted cash from his federal campaign to his state campaign (link). In the end they have decided that it is just better to ignore what they have done and move on then to continue to push and potentially expose Doyle to further scrutiny.

In reaction to the SEB vote today the Green Campaign released the following statement:

Green Campaign: State Elections Board Admits Mark Green Complied with State Rules when Converting Federal Account to State Account
3/16/2007

In response to the settlement agreed to today by the State of Wisconsin Elections Board and Green for Wisconsin, Mark Green issued the following statement Friday:

“The State Elections Board has finally admitted what has been true from the start. When I converted my federal campaign account to a state account we complied not only with state law and Elections Board rules, but we actually followed the advice of the Board’s staff. The decision by the Elections Board last fall has now been exposed as nothing more than a crass manipulation of a governmental agency by Jim Doyle in his desperate effort to hold on to power.

“It is unfortunate that taxpayer dollars had to be wasted to defend Jim Doyle’s actions, but I am gratified that the Elections Board itself has been eliminated. No other candidate will ever again receive the kind of unfair treatment I received from what was supposed to be an impartial body.”

I believe that this manipulation of the SEB shows how far Doyle is willing to go to win an election. An in-depth investigation should be conducted into his actions and if proof can be found that he in any way manipulated the board Doyle should be thrown out of office.
