Earlier this week, TheRestofUs.org called on ten Wisconsin legislators whose name had come up in the trial of former Wisconsin politico Scott Jensen to demand a vote on a bill to strengthen ethics and campaign finance enforcement. Unbelievably, yesterday, one of the Assembly leaders said he thinks the ethics bill is "unlikely to be brought up," because he's heard "nothing at all" about it from other members.
