All I know is what I read in the papers

I don't remember ever hearing about Richard Uihlein or his firm, Uline, before this weekend.

But when it was reported that he was the source that triggered a "pants on fire" rating from for State Sen.. Bob Wirch, who claimed to have helped Uline move some jobs to Kenosha, the name sounded familiar.

That's because Uihlein also was mentioned in another weekend in the same newspaper about how much Supreme Court David (The Strangler) Prosser raised for his recent recount -- listing Uihlein as a $50,000 donor to Prosser.

What's the point? He's not exactly a neutral source. You have to wonder who asked him to issue the unsolicited statement about Wirch -- who's facing a recall election Tuesday -- that set off PolitiFact.
