It is a startling charge that is bound to impress any unusually stupid and uninformed citizens of Wisconsin.
In fact, Governor Doyle has not granted a single commutation of sentence (you know, those things that literally pluck prisoners from prison and toss them out in the streets). Doyle has only granted pardons (which restore civil rights), and only then to people who have committed low level crimes and have waited at least five years before applying. That is to say, Doyle did not toss them "back on the streets" - in any meaningful sense of the language. They had already served their time and have been living as the kind of law-abiding citizens that Suder should be celebrating and praising, not misrepresenting and using for campaign fodder.
In sum, in matters related to clemency, Scott Suder is a moron, or one of the most despicable lying jerks Wisconsin politics has ever seen. See story here.
