Capitol Chaos: State Patrol Goes After Democratic Senators
By Jay Sorgi

MADISON - According to the Wisconsin senate majority leader, the Governor's office is sending out state troopers to go after Wisconsin's Democratic Senate members to bring in a vote on Governor Walker's budget bill which would dramatically limit government workers union's ability to negotiate many of their benefits.

"They are prepared to dispatch state troopers to go out to some of the residences of some of the senators," said Republican State Senator Scott Fitzgerald on Newsradio 620 WTMJ's "Midday with Charlie Sykes."

"We don't know that everybody is out of state. These troopers are going to go and try to escort these senators back to the chamber."

The State Patrol cannot go after the Democratic senators who have left the state, and Democratic State Senator Jon Erpenbach told "Wisconsin's Morning News" that all 14 Democratic Senate members have fled Wisconsin and have not announced a timetable for their return.

**SNIP**

Fitzgerald said he was not sure if Assembly Democrats are showing up or want to caucus.

And how much are the WI Senator’s theatrics costing valuable state resources? Taxpayer should be furious.
This happened in Texas with redistricting, Dem’s fled. After all was said and done, they lost...how juvenile!

Tea Party Patriots found two of them yesterday.

Despite claims that they were returning to the state, they are now saying that the senators are in a “secure” location in Illinois.

Bill Ayers house?

These retards need to be found guilty in “deriliction of duty” if there is such a thing, and made examples of.

They get about $80 a day per diem when in session.

About $50,000 a year in salary plus benefits.

I’m waiting for them to be found in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago crawlspace, proving they are Illinois residents. Then Walker can replace them.

One thing that struck me yesterday when the Tea Party fellow caught up with The Runaway Senators was how casual and normal they seemed. As if they were startled ANYONE would think it odd they had decided to RUN AWAY from their jobs.

This is pretty weak.

Not if there are a couple of SUPER-SECRET reports that a few RAT Fleas are still at home. (Shhhh. Keep that to yourself.) All that's needed is one to be captured and placed in a seat. Leg irons are optional.

I am conflicted on this. Part of me says, let them go. Let them avoid the capitol for as long as they want. Gov Walker can simply deal with the deficit by issuing pink slips to union members in the public sector. That will permanently rid us of at least some of these parasites.

Brave Sir Robin ran away
Bravely, ran away...away...
When danger reared its ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin

He is packing it in and packing it up
And sneaking away and buggering off
And chickening out and pissing off home,
Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge

If I was Walker I would deputize like bounty hunters a band of ~100 tea party members to perform Citizen's arrests and get at least one (D) to cross the border back into WI where the State Cops could pick them up.

Hold the vote down at the pokey where the orange jumpsuited (D) finds himself, and have the Tea Party "Don't Tread on Me Flag" all over the walls in the background, and another banner placed behind the chair to which the (D) is hand cuffed which says "Fugitive Senators, we're comin' to get you next!"

Issue an Executive Order for the formal arrest of each of the others unless they willingly turn themselves in within 6 hours. Issue another Executive Order to the effect that if they fail to report after 2 weeks, their seats will be formally vacated and he will appoint senators to serve in their place in advance of special elections.

Sound like a plan?

FReegards!

They’re all out of the state. The governor and state police can’t cross state lines to bring them back to do their jobs.
