Burke says She Won't Apologize for Her Campaign's Plagiarism
Democrat Mary Burke said today she will not apologize, after a campaign consultant copied parts of her job-creation plan from candidates for governors of other states. Burke, who's in a tight race with Republican Governor Scott Walker, said she fully supports the ideas in her plan. Burke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that political forces are driving the story, to try and distract voters from what she called Walker's poor job numbers. Burke would not say whether the Walker camp was behind the story. The Buzz-Feed Web site said large portions of Burke's job plan were copied word-for-word from Democratic gubernatorial hopefuls in Delaware, Tennessee, and Indiana over the past six years. Burke shrugged it off as a minor mistake. She does not believe it will undermine her credibility. Her campaign said the consultant behind the writings -- Eric Schnurer -- was fired last night. Burke said she made the call to let him go. State Republican Party director Joe Fadness called it the latest in a series of mis-steps by Burke.

Happ Rejects Campaign Gift
The Democratic candidate for Wisconsin attorney general has rejected a campaign gift from a lawyer who engineered a controversial plea deal with her office. Susan Happ is the Jefferson County D-A. In March, her top assistant approved a deferred prosecution agreement for an alleged child molester who previously bought a house owned by Happ. The defense attorney in the case, Daniel Fay, was reported to have given Happ 750-dollars in July for her attorney general's bid. Happ's campaign said the donation was turned over to the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault. The campaign manager said there was nothing wrong with the gift -- but considering the publicity the case has attracted, Happ wanted to avoid any appearance of impropriety. Happ is running against Waukesha D-A Brad Schimel for the attorney general's post to be given up by eight-year incumbent J-B Van Hollen.

Scotland Votes to Remain Part of the U-K
British Prime Minister David Cameron says it's his plan to give Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland more independence from the control of the central government. More than 84-percent of Scotland's registered voters went to the polls yesterday (Thursday) and the majority voted to remain a part of the United Kingdom. The 55-to-45-percent margin was actually wider than polling had indicated.

Investigation Continues into Apparent Western WI Animal Cruelty Case
An investigation continues into an apparent animal cruelty case in western Wisconsin. The A-S-P-C-A joined Monroe County sheriff's and animal control officials in searching a mobile home near Kendall yesterday. They said they found 15 dogs and a parakeet living in squalor -- plus other animals that were dead. The homeowner was taken to a hospital for treatment of an injury, and officials said the person could face criminal charges. Officials said the dogs included Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, and Jack Russell terriers -- and they were suffering from dehydration, dental disease, and other problems. The A-S-P-C-A said they were taken to an undisclosed temporary shelter for medical care. The A-S-P-C-A says it will care for the animals until new homes can be found for them.
