Doyle Picks a New Student Regent

Yesterday, Governor Doyle appointed Chris Semenas from UW-Parkside as the student representative on the UW Board of Regents.

The curious thing, however, is this release, which appeared out of nowhere last week while the Legislature was debating the UW budget. In it, Semenas gives Doyle the same treatment the Governor would have to pay $30 at a disreputable massage parlor to get.

The question is: did Semenas do this release before he knew he would be appointed, or after? Did the sycophantic release have anything to do with him getting the appointment?
