DescriptionDan Bice has another hard hitting story, where he has uncovered the fact that Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn had an affair with Jessica McBride. There are just a couple of things I want to mention here.

First, Jessica McBride was one of the ones who was pushing hard for passage on the gay marriage amendment... you know, so that the sanctity of marriage can be protected. Well, she got her amendment, but apparently that didn't change how she thinks of marriage. I feel sorry for her husband, and also their children, who are going to have to deal with the publicity this will bring.

Second, Jessica teaches journalism at UWM and has even taught journalistic ethics. One of the tenants of journalistic ethics is that reporters should "remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility." Apparently she didn't think that applied to her when she wrote a flowering review of the Chief in Milwaukee Magazine and later said in a letter to the Chief: "Just felt a little protective. Knew I didn't want to do you wrong..." Obviously this puts a taint on anything she's written regarding the Chief, and the Milwaukee Police department in general. People ought to consider these ethical problems before accepting any of her writing in the future.
