Now that Marquette Baylor is pushing for her former boss to be investigated, further reporting opens a new series of important questions to be raised. Beyond the abhorrent negligence that indirectly led to the deaths of service men and women, the scandal suggests just how carefully Democrats plan and protect their power.
Dan Bice reports:
The report found that Baldwin’s constituent services team failed to relay constituent concerns to the office’s top staff. From there, the report said, her senior aides took too long to formulate an “effective response” to the problems.
It’s no secret that Democrats, especially in Wisconsin, carve out platforms that hinge simply on not being Republicans — Mary Burke’s trainwreck failed candidacy was a case study in that. But here we see a careful political calculation, not just to protect the Senator, but perhaps also the longtime Congressman who represents Tomah, Rep. Ron Kind. His challenger in 2014, Tony Kurtz, is an Army veteran who gave the entrenched incumbent a run for his money. This kind of scandal could have certainly shaken the foundation of Kind’s lofty stoop.
In giving Baldwin’s team the benefit of the doubt that they would certainly do their best to fly to the aid of ailing and abused veterans, what power structure caused such a delay in action, and why couldn’t something have been done without the requisite media parade?
If that’s not the case, then certainly Baldwin’s team failed to act and people died.
Did the Democrat apparatus in Wisconsin, and perhaps nationally, put pressure on Baldwin’s office to shut down the scandal for the sake of protecting their power in Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District?
