The question is to Speaker Sheridan, how many more arrests Jeff Wood will have for OWI until he moves towards expelling the disgraced representative? Well five arrests for OWI should be alarming, especially with the Representative is now officially charged with bail jumping in connection to the conditions of his bail for his third arrest.
Speaker Sheridan has been talking tough on drunk driving reform, but he has been really been trying to give the disgraced Representative a double standard by sticking up for Wood. This comes when a colleague of Wood, Rep. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater, 31st District) introduced a resolution to expel him. Last week, it was noted that Speaker Sheridan was reluctant towards expelling Jeff Wood calling this a “pandora’s box” situation. Now with the shocking news of Wood’s fifth DUI arrest, this nonsense logic by the Wisconsin Assembly Speaker needs to stop for the good of Wisconsin and for the Legislature.
Speaker Sheridan needs to stop pandering to his party and kick it in high gear
to get rid of Rep. Jeff Wood once and for all. This time the evidence is clear and convincing that Rep. Wood’s conduct is detrimental to the Wisconsin State Assembly. Rep. Steve Nass is correct that the Wisconsin people will not tolerate a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly who is a threat to public safety. There is no so-called “pandora’s box” to this situation, Speaker. The evidence is right in front of the eyes of the Assembly Speaker. Sheridan needs to wake up and smell the coffee on this or if he wants to still give Wood a free pass, Sheridan will be rendered as another corrupt hack in the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. The same class of corrupt politicians and party leaders including Mark Pocan, Mike Tate, and Jim Sullivan who don’t give a damn about ethics or honor.
