MDE losing the fight

But apparently MDE is scared of Senator Steve Kelley. This is disgusting. I don't know what started this all-points blitz on Steve's hard-earned reputation as a bi-partisan problem-solver in the legislature [disclaimer disclaimer disclaimer], but it's really revolting. Not only is MDE's reporting, while admittedly unbound by rules of journalistic ethics, dangerously close to libel, but there is absolutely no logic linking Senator Kelley's comments with MDE's claim.

Note: I'm still waiting for any non-GOP-leadership lawmaker to deny that Steve Kelley is a great bi-partisan leader. Just sayin'.

It has been said in recent days that the party who attacks the other side for politicizing the issue is losing the fight. This is either an example of exactly this situation or yet another case of MDE misrepresenting (or not doing) his/her research. Very sad.

You're argument is flawed:

"Note: I'm still waiting for any non-GOP-leadership lawmaker to deny that Steve Kelley is a great bi-partisan leader. Just sayin'." Has any GOPer said that he is?

By the way, you are extremly defensive of Steve Kelley. Do you work for him or have any ties to his campaign?

Read past posts regarding the Gubernatorial race. I make no secret of my work for Senator Kelley.

My bad.

You still haven't answered my first question.

And another one, if you please. Are you a Senate staffer or campaign worker?

The weight of proof isn't on me here, it's on MDE. MDE has made the claim, in affable MDE-prose, "This is bull****", in reference to a claim that Steve Kelley has always been a strong bi-partisan problem-solver. MDE made the claim, it's up to MDE to prove it.

As for giving you further hints as to my identity, it really shouldn't be that difficult to figure out.

Why do you want to know, though? Who are you in real life?

Well, the burden of proof is on both of you. He claims that Steve Kelley is not a bi-partisan leader. You then had the claim:
"Note: I'm still waiting for any non-GOP-leadership lawmaker to deny that Steve Kelley is a great bi-partisan leader. Just sayin'."

As I already stated, this proves nothing. Just because no GOPer hasn't said he' not, it doesn't mean Kelley is a bi-partisan leader.

I don't want to know your name or anything, I respect you choice to keep it hidden. I just thought doing political work as a State Empolyee, i.e. running a blog promoting your boss, was unethical, if not illegal.
