Where Have We Heard That Defense Before?

Jef Hall points out the linchpin of Michael Gableman's argument that he did no wrong.

"I forget."

Now, I remember, "I have no recollection of that," as the mantra of disgraced Attorney General Alberto Gonzales (We tried to warn you that he was no good, too. But you wouldn't listen.) but it nagged at me that, "I forgot," was used closer to home. Who had used that defense before?

I should have looked back in the archives.

"I forgot." The cry of the Wisconsin Scoundrel is heard once more upon the land. Why are we surprised?

Who would be so crazy as to think that a call to Republican Party headquarters would've been political in nature?

What would be truly impressive is if he can think of a reason to call them that wouldn't be political in nature.
