Donovan accused Hines of retaliating against him for taking controversial stands -- an accusation that Hines denied.
"Over the years, I have spoken out on a variety of issues, and I've probably stepped on some toes," Donovan said. "Some people may perceive this, as I do, as payback. It's a sad day in Milwaukee when an elected official can't stand up and voice his gut feelings and represent his constituents and call 'em like he sees 'em without suffering retribution."Yeah, that's it! It's retribution! It had nothing to do with his being a complete joke and failing to live up to his responsibilities as the chairman of this important committee.
Sadly, this won't mean that Donovan will be any less the clown than he has been.
I'm sure he'll still complain about problems that don't exist; advocate for turning Milwaukee into a police state and locking up the kids, even the innocent ones; and issuing racist statements.
