Big whoop. The ethics board actually fined Doyle a few bucks.
I wish someone could explain to me why it is okay for Doyle to accept free Packers tickets for one game,
In October, the Ethics Board said Doyle had not violated the ethics code when he accepted four tickets to a 2003 Packers game in Chicago from an insurance executive who does business with the state.
But it is not okay for a different game,
Gov. Jim Doyle's purchase of tickets provided by a lobbyist for a Green Bay Packers football game in 2003 was improper under the state's lobbying laws, the state Ethics Board said Thursday.
Apparently it is okay to accept free gifts from people doing business with the state, but it is not okay to accept tickets for lobbyists attempting to do business with the state.
Go figure that one out.
