Posted on 04/17/2011 7:16:00 PM PDT by Minus_The_Bear
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.

How many SEIU thugs were involved?
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.
Does anyone have any doubts whether it was a Rat or not? Come on!
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!
These union thugs sure are a sick bunch.
“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...
Hell that’s nothing...they havent even broken out the ball bats yet...
Therw will be blood spilled before this is settled...only a matter of time till a libtard acts on their threats...
Yes, and this is the mentality of those that insist we relinquish our lives, our treasure(s), our accomplishments to them.
Thieves, Liars, and Cheats.
Democrat G. Gordon Liddy?
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.
And of course the WI police officers’ union will be of real help in the search after demonstrating which side they stand with...
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.
Anybody know the whereabouts of the that Dem congresscritter’s son that was slashing tires of pubbie buses and vans?
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!
Not in Holder's DOJ. Not on Obama's watch.
"On Sept. 18, 1972, the evening before the primary election during his second attempt for Congress, Kerrys 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."
The police were probably the look-outs for the robbers.
Nothing-and I mean nothing-surprises me anymore, especially in WI.
I wondered about that as well.
Thugs of the Hussein Cult.
So what will this be called...cheesegate?
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.
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.
Hey, I wonder if the thiefs were disguised at plumbers?

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 Wisconsinand 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.”
You sure you want to insult the G man like that?
I guess not
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.
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!
