Well, How 'Bout Dem Apples?

It really is too early to tell what this might forebode, but on McBride's website, we now see this:

And on her new Election Warp Wisconsin, we find this:

As I said, it is really too soon to guess what this may mean, but we will keep you informed, if we find anything out.

Please stay tuned, Same Whallah! time. Same Whallah! channel.

    Each defendant faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each wire or mail fraud conviction. The bank fraud charges carry penalties of up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

    The charges stem from a two-year joint state and federal investigation conducted by members of the Public Integrity Unit of the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of the Inspector General.

    Lock was accused last week of being part of a rnig of criminals who violently shook down people in Milwaukee.

    Police say four Milwaukee men robbed, kidnapped and tortured drug dealers then took the drugs and sold them. Lock is the accused ringleader.

    A criminal complaint states that Lock and his crew tortured one rival dealer for six hours by pouring "hot chicken grease on his legs, arm and back."

    The victim claims a gang member told him, "We are going to kill you; that's what we do. We are the body snatchers."

    And more charges could be coming. There are still questions remaining about an incident that happened at 4900 W. Fiebrantz Ave. - Lock's former home.

    In 2005, human remains were found buried in the back yard under concrete slabs.

  7. I know what it means ... she's afraid to have open discourse because every time she puts fingers to keyboard she types something stupid.

    No one, right or left, was commenting at her blog, anyway (other than John). Even before her hiatus.

  8. I can hardly blame her...ha ha!

  9. When the only people who can read your stuff are friends you have invited, it certainly cuts down on the criticism.

    Of course, it also cuts down on the publicity/notoriety.

    Anyone feeling sorry for her yet?

  10. I heard she called someone a c*** and it taking some professional heat for it.

  11. Nah, that was John McCain.


  12. It looks like anonymous could use posting privileges. :)

    I'm going to surprise myself and side with Ms. McBride Bucher on this one. If she has in fact pulled back her blog, I'm sure she feels there's a good reason.

    People on my site can sometime fall apart if a comment gets sucked up by the spam filter. Also, and I know I'm going to get it for this one, but we're girls. I know I've had comments/e-mails that guys would most likely not get. If someone gets freaky, it's easier to disappear than stay a target.

    But then again, she may be buying time for something. If the case posted above is big, she may have had prompting from the spouse to move to the background.

    Thank goodness my husband never reads my stuff!

  13. Maybe she does not want to receive comments like those above. So she closes the blog and doesn't have to refuse to post them?

  14. Terrence Berres said...
    "Last I checked, the Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules are part and parcel of the Wisconsin statutes..."

    Aren't the SCRs analogous to administrative rules? Rules of pleading and practice, per sec. 751.12, are literally incorporated in the statutes. The SCRs follow the Appendix in the statute books.

  15. Darn, I just checked my email and I did not receive my invitation yet,

  16. This does surprise me coming from a journalist and a woman that is married to the king of the open meetings law. I remember when she was going public on blogtalk radio and everything.

    Is this the woman who is marrried to the man that criticized the Attorney General for not disclosing everything in the Crandon murders while an investigation was ongoing?

    1st Amendment out the window I guess. I am not surprised, I am flabbergasted.

  17. You know I just had a thought. (Don't worry, it only happens a couple of times a year...) What if she's gearing up to work for say - Scott Walker or something. A media consultant maybe?

    Are there any open seats she'd be running for in November?

    There's more to this than "I'm too busy to blog."

  18. There is unquestionably more. But what, as long as it is online it can be legally acquired if someone especially a govt. agency wants it. I understand the web site would have access ecen if it was deleted. So the question is why doesn't she want anyone to read what she wrote or what her readers commented?

    Comments can only be delete by the host correct? In other words if someone allegedly called her the c word in a comment on her dsite, they could not delete it could they? Only she could, I think. Maybe capper knows or has some other insight into the potential purpose of the email to Wispolitics.com.

  19. I don't suppose any of you idiots thought to just ask her why?

    Bashing is so much more fun I guess.

  20. Believe some one did. She's too busy.

  21. Believe me. It had nothing to do with Jessica. If you know her at all, you know the ne thing she loves to do is talk (or write). Especially to express and try to sway others to her way of thinking. Why do you think she couldn't refrain for crossing the line in the last election(s)? Why do you really think she lost her talk show? How long do you think she will stay writing the GMToday column? She has a perfect reason to take an extended hiatus with her daughter.
