What makes this matter post-worthy is that one of the GOP state senators who voted to reject Rosen's appointment was Alberta Darling, who had written a letter to Rosen only seven days earlier that read:
I would like to personally extend my congratulations to you on your appointment to the Wisconsin Technical College System State Board. It is wonderful to know that someone with your talents and knowledge will be serving on this board as a representative of the public.This woman is a pathetic excuse for a legislator.
... I look forward to working with you in the future.
