Petitions stolen from Recall Dave Hansen (D) office?
http://www.redstate.com/moe_lane/2011/04/17/petitions-stolen-from-recall-dave-hansen-d-office/ ^

Allegedly, the burglars were after the petitions gathered to recall Dave Hansen, who was one of the Wisconsin Democratic senators who fled the state rather than participate in the democratic process. Which - if this was in fact done by Democratic party operatives or sympathizers - would merely demonstrate that Hansen is in fact fairly representative of his party, at that.

The good news is that the recall folks say that they still have enough signatures, so it should have no insurmountable effect on the recall process, but you can expect that local Democrats will try to wring as much advantage out of any disruption as possible. Whether or not the Democrats were actually involved - and if this story checks out, the Wisconsin Democratic party leadership will heartily regret it if any member traceable back to their party was actually involved; this is felony territory. Serious felony territory.

I would be willing to bet my next paycheck the party of perpetual dirty tricks was behind this in some way or fashion.

this is what the dems will do (and worse) when their government spending and public sector unions are threatened. If the movement to cut government grows, there will be violence. You can bet the bank on it.

Did you hear yesterday at the rally, one of the speakers said she’d be coming back to Madistan soon to file recall petition against Hoperin? Good deal.

Glad to hear that enough petitions were not stolen to mess up the Hansen recall. I’d have those babies under lock and key with a bigger-than-union size thug bodyguard for protection!

“How many SEIU thugs were involved?”

Eventually, maybe, eventually the Republicans will learn who they’re up against. But they will, I guess, have to be taught again and again...

Given the Prosser election results I would say the dems have lost all credibility and support from the people in Wisconsin. They have shown themselves to be nothing more than thugs who don’t deserve to hold elective office.

There is a good chance that they will be caught. If, as expected, they are low level thugs, it will be hard for them to keep their mouths shut. They will desperately want to brag about their exploits.

I vaguely recall something about John F'n Kerry's first attempt at
running for Congress. A House seat. Can't remember the details.

Any way, Kerry lost, and somebody greased the skids for his very late
acceptance, late as in after the first Tuesday in November, into BC Law.

Police and fire have been on a pedastal since 9 11.
Do they want to risk that good will by siding with union thugs?

Because if they do, it’s f’n OVER!

Sweet memories :-)

"On Sept. 18, 1972, the evening before the primary election during his second attempt for Congress, Kerry’s brother Cameron and one Thomas Vallely, both part of his current campaign team, were arrested by Lowell police at 1:40 a.m. and charged with breaking and entering with the intent to commit larceny. The two were apprehended in the basement of a building whose door had been forced open, police said. It housed the headquarters of candidate DiFruscia. The Watergate scandal was making headlines at this time, and it was called the Lowell Watergate."

Heard of Watergate? Get ready for Lowellgate

The police were probably the look-outs for the robbers.

Nothing-and I mean nothing-surprises me anymore, especially in WI.

I have a friend who spent much of her childhood in South Africa. She said when apartheid ended, many blacks had been promised homes and other property. When that didn’t happen, violence erupted against whites. She said the unrest lasted for years.

A parallel for America?

If the break-in occurred in Madison, where the police chief is a Dem supporter, don't expect a high probability of police catching them (or even looking for them). Don't even be surprised if police were INVOLVED in the break in.

Do they really think things through when they do this stuff? I would be twice as likely to re-sign a recall petition and get off my fat butt and vote in a case like this than a normal recall petition, and so would many others.

By just advertising the facts about why they have to re-canvas and re-petition they will get many people to sign who would be as or more offended by the thug tactics than they were about the original fleeing to Illinois.

Wisconsin’s Election Snafu Is a National Wake-Up Call
The need for greater transparency grows as we head toward 2012.
By JOHN FUND

It’s been over a decade since the Bush-Gore recount in Florida was supposed to spur a wholesale modernization of our election systems. But a stunning mistake made by a Wisconsin county clerk in a nationally watched state Supreme Court race reminded us of how far we have to go.

Wisconsin voters went to the polls on April 5 in an election that could have flipped the state Supreme Court’s majority from conservative to liberal. On the morning of April 6, liberal challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory by a margin of some 200 votes. But the next day Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus announced that she had excluded some 14,000 votes from the city of Brookfield when she gave her final tally to the Associated Press on election night. The revised tally put conservative incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 votes ahead of Ms. Kloppenburg, and he has since been verified the clear winner.

Ms. Nickolaus’s error could have been easily avoided through transparency. She had ended the prior clerk’s practice of reporting election results for individual cities because it was “not her responsibility” and she didn’t “have the staff to enter all the data”—an absurd statement given that many smaller counties post such data on their websites. Many states, such as Kentucky, offer user-friendly websites to track returns statewide.

Not so in Wisconsin—and if we don’t view this month’s mess as a wake-up call, we’ll have only ourselves to blame if next year’s presidential election turns into a rerun of Florida 2000. Americans know it could happen: The Brookings Institution reports that in a 2004 poll of 37 nations, Americans were more likely than citizens of any country save Russia to say that their elections are “very dishonest.”

Doesn’t that hole in the window look like it would be quite difficult for someone to squeeze into? First, it’s small. Second, the glass is still jagged on top, bottom and sides...seems to me anyone entering that hole would have been cut to shreds or taken out those shards of glass.

Typical socialist communist, (democratic) tactics, when all else fails, (Union bill, and supreme court election) blame your opponents (TEA Party) for being threatening, and abusive, exactly what the socialist, communist democrat (Unions) are doing, i.e., (Arizona shooter) thus, diverting attention away from the socialist communist democrat Union thugs, while calling for and demanding “civility.” When that tactic fails, physically attack and beat up your opponent (TEA Party) while blaming your opposition (TEA Party), and finally, when those tactics fail, break into your opponents offices and homes and steal their recall petitions.

Standard socialist communist and union thug tactics, used for more than a hundred years to subdue their opponents and enemies! Read history, it always repeats itself!
