Hey guys, I was responding to someone who had asked if the positions were partisan. That person must have removed their comment.

Keith Best is a private citizen? Keith, why don't you let everyone know that you work for Neylon and that you are the person who leaked privileged information to uber-liberal Daniel Bice at the Journal Sentinel about Tarantino? You are also using the name Paul Ryan Rocks on that jsonline story. What a coward and a horrible example of a conservative you and Neylon are for doing that to a competing candidate.It is neanderthals like you that set our party back a hundred years. I hope you get blackballed out of the GOP when people realize how bad you made Walker and Kleefisch look. Please do not elect Keith Best for the Waukesha GOP position that he is slobbering all over to get.

Sorry ImConservative but you are WRONG. I learned about the Bice column by reading the Journal Sentinel. I won't claim to speak for Neylon, but from what I know he learned about the issue the same way. Calling me a "coward" and a "neanderthal" is rather comical. I didn't claim Walker and Kleefisch discriminated against me. And I don't work for Neylon, but I do support him. Get a clue, your accusations are baseless.

Either Tarantino lied under oath or Kleefisch needs to step down. Which is it?
