Rep. Brett Hulsey is the featured guest on Capitol City Sunday

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Rep. Brett Hulsey (D-Madison) is not shy about coming down hard on fellow Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.

"Let's take the unfair, despair Act 10.  First, she liked parts of it, then she didn't like it," said Rep. Hulsey.  "And you know I debated it and opposed it for over 60 hours."

But Hulsey says even if he doesn't win the August primary, he will have helped Burke by running.

"People say, 'you're helping the Republicans,' I'm saying as a business person you want to do your due diligence and in politics you want to find out these things in April, because the other side is already buying $2 million worth of television to tell us about it in September and October.

Hulsey is the featured guest on Capitol City Sunday this weekend, where he also talks about past actions that have raised questions about his mental state, including a 2012 incident where he tipped over a 9 year-old boy's flotation device at Spring Harbor beach.  Hulsey says the boy was bullying two younger girls.
"You know, I was walking down the street the other day, I saw a kid being bullied by another kid and honestly, I kept walking," said Hulsey. 

And he seems to have backed off on some future controversy he promised to create with Mary Burke.  Hulsey originally said that if Burke wouldn't debate him, he would have someone follow her around in a chicken suit.

"No, I think we'll do that with Governor Walker, she's not ready to debate me, she's pretty shy," said Rep. Hulsey.

In the second half of the show, Jessica Van Egeren of the Capital Times and Kate Golden from the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism talk about their four-part series on pollution in the Yahara chain of lakes here in Madison.  Its called "Murky Waters." 

Capitol City Sunday airs at 9:00 a.m. on WKOW 27.
