Elizabeth Kastner & Needles.
Apparently, a leftist activist from Fish Creek (Door County) collected needles used to give her daughter insulin. Then she gave those needles to Governor Doyle's office who then delivered them to John Gard's office. The stunt was designed to generate pro-embryonic stem cell research publicity.
Kevin then googled Elizabeth Kastner and found her all too plenty leftist activities and affiliations. When I read that blog last night I then went to Wisconsin's Circuit Court Access Program (an easy google) and I plunked Elizabeth Kastner into it. It too has plenty of returns and it seems the returns are all consistent with what is known about this peronality we refer to as Elizabeth Kastner. Nothing too big, and one must remember there are medical problems in her family
Anyway. Rereading the blog this morning I wonder why the focus is on Elizabeth? From Lakeshore Laments:

It may have been Elizabeth giggling and snorting with laughter who suggested this foolish prank, but it was Doyle's office and aides (and Kevin points out discrepancies on reports of Doyle's knowledge of this affair) who actually executed the prank. To be fair, I highly doubt Governor Doyle would have known about this, while I happen to disagree with Doyle on most everything he does seem to be grown up. OTOH, Elizabeth and Mr. Guarasci have some growing up to do.
You know, there is a reason the needle boxes in hospitals and clinics look scarey and try to encourage us to treat those boxes with those needles with caution.
To the left, if you want to talk about embryonic stem cell reasearch then do it in an adult fashion.
