Attorney General Brad Schimel is taking on Huggy Bear from the old Starsky & Hutch television series.
In a nutshell, Schimel said, “Huggy Bear helped foster the notion that prostitution is harmless.” He added that pimp Halloween costumes also foster that perception.
Below is David’s reply. Feel free to pass it around and send it on to AG Schimel. You may contact Schimel’s office via the Wisconsin DOJ website. Also find him on Twitter and on Facebook.

Relative to recent comments made by Wisconsin Attorney General Brad ‘Schlemiel’ at a Madison, Wisconsin, luncheon: When it comes to washing his hands of any “interest” he might have in Trump’s inhumane, immoral policy of separating children from migrant families by saying it’s a “federal issue that has little impact in the state of Wisconsin”, this #1 ‘law’man reeks of the sort of comment that Pontius Pilate might have made in considering what to do with Christ. Yes, Brad, and the Romans had LAWS, too. Of course, the president’s cruel policy and the Attorney General’s response reflects on the values that all U.S. citizens—be they from Texas, Arizona, California, or even Wisconsin—espouse and hold so dear.
On another matter, sir, a note of clarification: The character of ‘Huggy Bear’ in the 1970s TV series, Starsky & Hutch, was NOT a pimp! FYI and enlightenment: ‘Huggy Bear’ owned a legit bar and was S & H’s ‘fake news informant’!
Meanwhile, the next really important issue I think Attorney General Schlemiel should sink his teeth into is a ban on Halloween! Watch out, though: this too may have serious ‘federal’ repercussions. I think this year I’ll put my pimp costume aside and go out as the Statue of Liberty… a reminder of our identity as Americans, including those who would trivialize the spirit of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Lady of Justice, and herself, the symbol of who we are: the Statue of Liberty. Maybe these things don’t matter in Wisconsin.
