Lunchtime Musings: Vukmir, Darling hold Walker to a lower standard

Republicans in the state continue to make absurd accusations and demands.

Now they are calling on Mary Burke to drop out of the race for governor.

Nevermind the fact that it was a subordinate's use of "plagiarism" that created this mess, not actually Burke. And never mind also that this person used their own words from previous documents of their own writings, negating claims of plagiarism itself.

No, Burke apparently acted so egregiously in this instance, according to Republicans, that she MUST drop from the race.

For those keeping track at home, questionable "plagiarism" is more terrible than any action of Governor Scott Walker's, including cronyism, secretive email systems on the taxpayer's dime, illegal collaboration between campaigns and issue groups, appointments to offices based on donor contributions and proximity to the governor himself, and lest we forget, broken campaign promises on jobs.

If Burke has to drop out over this small incident, what action would be amiable for Walker too take? Scandal seems to follow him wherever he goes. Yet, the GOP overlooks it all.

Does Walker need to be held accountable to the same degree, or does the "R" after his name render him a free pass? Please let us know, Sens. Leah Vukmir and Alberta Darling.
