John Chisholm - Shaken Not Stirred?

The person under the most political fire in Milwaukee has to be District Attorney John Chisholm. Yet talk is cheap in the political arena.

The Black community is upset with him because of what they perceive as a lack of Justice concerning the deaths of black males by Milwaukee police with no charges filed in those deaths.

Conservative and Republicans are enraged by Chisholm's action and what they consider over reach in the John Doe and John Doe 2 investigations. The National Review article by David French has brought national attention to the tactics used in the Doe's.

Chisholm, a Democrat, will be up for re-election in the fall of 2016. As a partisan election this will give the discontents two opportunities to replace him. The first being a Democratic primary and the second a general election Republican opponent.

It will be interesting to see who will put themselves in the hot seat on the Dem side and if any Republican will step up to the challenge. I would imagine that any solid challenger won't have much difficulty in raising campaign funds and I'm sure the "dark money" groups are licking their chops at the opportunity to run attack ads against DA Chisholm.
