Bounty Hunter Offers Services to Find "Missing" (AWOL Wisconsin RAT Flea) Lawmakers

Bounty Hunter Offers Services to Find "Missing" Lawmakers

SACRAMENTO A Sacramento bounty hunter is offering his services to track down Democratic Lawmakers from Wisconsin.

The lawmakers have reportedly fled to neighboring Illinois to delay a vote on a bill that would cut public employee benefits and take away collective bargaining rights. The bill was suggested by Governor Scott Walker to help the state of Wisconsin balance their budget. But it has split the legislature along party lines, and Democrats fled the state last week to boycott the bill.

Bounty hunter Leonard Padilla says he is willing to hunt down the Democratic lawmakers and bring them back to Wisconsin. "I don't know if they need to be handcuffed to their chair, or just in the state. But I said we can get the job done," Padilla says.

**SNIP**

Padilla is waiting to hear if Governor Walker will deputize him and give him the go-ahead to track down the lawmakers.

The worst possible photo op would be the pregnant senate democrat Julie Lassa being dragged into the chamber in handcuffs. I predict the rats will use her as bait to get that kind of photo and video.

Can they legally go out of state and capture these people? I can see Illinois trying to protect them.

I wouldn’t put it past these loony lefties to actually have this happen purposely.

I could actually see them asking the union-backing police officer to handcuff her and drag her in. Nothing these people do surprises me....NOTHING!

And Walker should state in no uncertain terms that such forced return is unacceptable; the senators should return home only upon their respective decisions to do so.

I would just hazard a guess that for about half of these people it wouldn't be much of a challenge for a bounty hunter. I doubt many of these "lawmakers" have any idea about personal security or how to really drop off the grid.

I'll bet they used their own credit cards to pay for rooms/gas/food. I'll bet they're making calls on their own cell phones, calling numbers of known associates. Maybe using their own email accounts... Drove their own vehicles with OnStar or iPass or some such. Real bush-league stuff that the bounty hunter might spend all of an hour or two tracking down. The wildcard here is that these guys may have enough political support to have someone advising them, or who is providing monetary support so they can stay off the grid. But they only need to find/return a couple to reach a quorum, right?

That idea raises an interesting question. If they are using their own resources, they'd be childishly easy to track. If they are getting support from others though... Isn't that an example of a public servant accepting gifts? Aren't there laws/limits on that? Could these Senators be breaking that law while hiding out?

Why doesn’t CBS, ABC or NBC just go ahead and make a reality show about this? It’s about as weird as any other show on TV now.

Some RATS are already complaining that it's a total waste of Wisconsin loot for a bounty hunter to be hired. (I think Rachel Madcow may have covered it tonight on her PMSNBC show - which no one sees.) Padilla will do it FOR FREE! Doesn't get much cheaper than that! Can the Dawg take that kinda pay cut? Don't think so.

This poses as sort of questions of what laws they are breaking.

Now there are warrants out for them, if or when they are arrested and brought back, what is the charge?

Hoping to see a FELONY charge in there somewhere.

there’s also a 6 month pregnant Dem on the run, as per the Fox Nation thread last night. Just offer her a warm bed, and it’s game over. ONE DEM is all that’s needed.

Yep. I think the Wisconsin AG needs to look into just how these AWOL Senators have been getting by. I’ll bet you at least one of them has been stupid/careless enough to accept a gift over the nominal limits. (eg. a motel room for the night, multiple meals, use of a vehicle, laundry service, cell phone/internet service etc.)

I wish they’d stop calling her Baby.
She’s great. I’ve enjoyed that show for a lot of years.
Bein’ a gal and all, I like Duane Lee best. I have to LOL at some of Beth’s get-ups. Her and Dog could do with a make over. Lose some of that over bleached hair, some classier clothing. But hey, they are what they are and that’s OK. I like the way they pray as a family. They’re doin’ something right. God bless ‘em.

Yeah, of course we can’t really get The Dog.
I needed a sarcasm tag.

They wouldn’t trade Hawaii for WI anyway. It was a 24 degrees for a high temp yesterday, around 12 degrees last night. We had some melting a few days ago and now it all froze and everything is an ice field. Even the snow is icy on top.

Oh it’s lovely! Paging AlGore to the white courtesy phone! Al! Al?

""""""""I’ll bet you at least one of them has been stupid/careless enough to accept a gift over the nominal limits.""""""""

That is so funny, they are ALL STUPID and CARELESS, but when does that ever stop a Dem from breaking a law.

Why, a Rep and a Dem. could be in store, both steal something in full view of the police/security. Guess which one goes to jail?? hahahahaha.

Laws?? They never apply to a Democrat, but we can keep hoping that ONE DAY.........

Well then, if that is so, wouldn’t they have to give up their senate seat? Impeachment? They would not be able to vote on anything as a Felon.

“Bein a gal and all, I like Duane Lee best...”

I would have to say that Leeland is my favorite (notice how Dog always sends Leeland in first) :-)

It’s been fun watching Lyssa grow into a real bounty hunter.

I am always a little amused by the prayers followed shortly by, “Don’t move mother !##*er!!!

That would be so cool, especially the part where he tries to counsel them just before he drops them off at the Capital building!

Best show on TV - period. You've got a few years of making up to do before you get what's going on. Bottom line - scientist teacher gets lung cancer, needs a TON of loot for the bills, cooks the best meth in the Milky Way, has a newborn, brother-in-law is a smart DEA agent who doesn't know, and everything has to be kept secret.

The official site for AMC's critically acclaimed series Breaking Bad

Click that. There's a 'New To The Show?' section right there. From what I can tell, a delayed season 4 starts in July. Need something else to twist your mind completely around? Try Rubicon.

You can thank me later.

I heard yesterday that their auto deposit was canceled and that each Senator has to show up at the state house to get his/her check. And I’m wondering whether that pregnant senator is sneaking back to visit her OB/GYN.

I have to admire LeeLand’s totally in shape bod. Very impressive but I think I am taller than him(5-9), thus making any TV crush not so likely. Hee Hee. They do send him in first, you are right. He’s fearless. Too bad they only can use(by law I suppose) weapons that aren’t the weapons I’d use in dangerous situations.

I also think it is hilarious that they will pray, and later or before, spout the foulest language known to mankind.

I like Dog’s tender heart. I hate his hairdo though.
