Here's a blast from the past. From the Capitol Times, this is what the Democratic Party of Wisconsin's resident loon had to say about Charles Franklin and the Marquette University Law School Poll in May, in advance of the Governor's recall:
... he has long-claimed that UW-Madison professor Charles Franklin, who conducts the Marquette University Law School poll as a visiting professor, is a Republican "hack" whose polls showing Gov. Scott Walker winning the recall election by five to seven points in recent weeks were "as reliable as a three-dollar bill." As it turned out, Franklin's poll results matched Walker's 7 percent win.
When I asked months ago for justification of his allegations against Franklin, Zielinski told me that several of Franklin's students had informed the party that Franklin boasted about consulting for GOP groups.
"If he denies this, we don't believe him," Zielinski concluded in an email.
Indeed, Franklin says he has never worked for any party or partisan organization.
Graeme, now that the very same MU Law Poll shows Democrat Tammy Baldwin leading Tommy Thompson by 9 points, is he now a "Democrat hack?" Graeme, Graeme, helllllloooooooo.
