The JS reported today that County Executive Scott Walker is knocking sharp-eyed watchdog Hannah Dugan out of her Ethics Board seat to replace her with sure-to-be-lapdog David Bradley Carr, a 2006 law school graduate. Carr is a lawyer with Gonzalez Saggio & Harlan. Dugan raised questions about the propriety of Walker's solicitation of private firms to pay for appreciation parties for veterans and county employees. Here's betting that Carr won't raise those kinds of uncomfortable questions.
Walker said Dugan's questions about the solicitations didn't have anything to do with his decision to replace her with Carr. That's not just hard to believe -- it is flat unbelievable.
