Push Poll About Milw. School Board President?

Ready, fire, aim

It’s still not clear who was behind a push poll against School Board President Peter Blewett.

Blewett put out a statement saying the poll by the Parker Group of Birmingham, Ala., suggested that he authorized fellow board member Charlene Hardin’s infamous trip to Philadelphia. In fact, he did not sign off on her junket.

But this much we do know:

The poll didn’t always hit its intended target.

Thad Nation, the Democratic campaign strategist, said he received the push-poll call about Blewett’s race.

But Nation said he can’t figure out why.

“I live in Shorewood,” he said, meaning he can’t cast a ballot for or against the Milwaukee official.

Nowhere during the poll, Nation said, did the Parker Group ask if he was eligible to vote in the contest.
