Your Views: Don’t let Tim Cullen fool you by backing Austin Scieszinski
I’m writing because I’m concerned about Austin Scieszinski’s inexperience.
Over the years, we have seen a revolving door of inexperienced, over-ambitious people try to run for office. They always say it’s “time for a new generation.” They think if you’re over 30 years old, you should go out to pasture.
Unfortunately, I think Austin is getting bad advice and being set up as a spoiler by his mentor, Tim Cullen. His inexperience showed when Austin criticized his opponents, claiming they took special-interest money from PACs. He has preached time and again at forums that he wouldn’t take special-interest money, but late in the game, hoping no one noticed, he filed a (late) Government Accountability Board report that shows him accepting that money.
There are too many similarities between him and Cullen. Cullen cashed in by accepting a position in Republican Tommy Thompson’s administration. He then turned his back on Wisconsin citizens and made money from the insurance industry. Cullen has been completely ineffective in the last four years.
I have heard Austin self-proclaim himself the next Proxmire, Feingold, Ryan and Walker. I’m sorry to say, Mr. Scieszinski, you are none of the above and will cash in just like your mentor, Cullen. Don’t be fooled by Cullen again. He is wrong for supporting someone with no experience for this important job. Cullen should be ashamed of himself for setting this kid up. Mr. Cullen, what is your true motive for this endorsement?
