Peter (Slick) Shumlin Plays Dirty Even While Governor

The Crocker Post - Conservative Transitioning Toward Paleoconser - 9:34 am Fri Apr 29th, 2011

Yesterday afternoon I thought I saw Democratic operative Paul Tencher in Montpelier. Later in the day I saw this story at WCAX.

This from Real Clear Politics:

Two days after Republicans took aim at Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin's fundraising, state Democrats turned the tables Wednesday, filing a complaint alleging that former Republican Gov. Jim Douglas' campaign solicited campaign contributions from a registered lobbyist during the 2009 legislative session _ which would be a violation of campaign finance laws.

So Republicans are concerned about something that happened this month but Democrats are going back two years to retaliate against former Governor Jim Douglas, like they've been saving this up for something. This is Peter Shumlin's responsibility as head of the Democratic Party in Vermont.

"Obviously I want my folks to comply with the law," said Shumlin, D-Vermont. Well, it's not so obvious. These are the kinds of violations one must make sure do not happen and Gov. Shumlin failed to do that.

It's clear that Shumlin won't hesitate to play dirty politics even while serving as Vermont's Governor.
