Scott Walker's World Includes Lawyers Who File Appeals For Clients That They Haven't Even Talked With

J.B. Van Hollen is another right-wing tool.  I'm sure he thinks Walker is just one great governor, but he still should act like he represents all the citizens of Wisco. 
But when Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's Department of Justice launched an effort to appeal Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi's order blocking publication of Gov. Scott Walker's anti-union law, the state lawyers did not even discuss the matter with the supposed "petitioner" in their action.
Van Hollen's lawyers claimed in their filings to be representing Secretary of State Doug La Follette. The "Petition for Leave to Appeal" filed by the Department of Justice lawyers concludes with the words "Secretary La Follette respectfully requests ... an ex parte order granting temporary relief from the TRO entered by Judge Sumi on March 18, 2011."
The attorney general and his minions are acting as politicians, not lawyers.
Well, yeah.  J.B. Van Hollen is a disgrace.  He did not win the four northernmost counties in Wisco, the county he is from, Bayfield, the county where he was the D.A., Ashland & Iron & Douglas counties.  I wish the rest of the state would actually know him like we know him.  They wouldn't vote for him either. My emphasis.

Can we included J.B. Van Hollen in the recall sweep?
