A Sheboygan gas station owner is baffled after a mystery caller tells a clerk it's a bad idea to do business with a Sheboygan-area state senator.
It started Tuesday when a woman called Dick Hiers's Northeast Standard gas station after she thought she saw Senator Joe Leibham there. Her call was caught on the answering machine.
"I think that this whole thing has to end. It has to stop," said Hiers.
Hiers never thought his little gas station in the heart of Sheboygan would be the stage of political controversy. Then again, his week has been full of surprises.
"I was working back here and the answering machine went off, and I was a little surprised by that, and when I heard the message here, I was even a little more surprised."
The answering machine here in the back of the store was left on from the night before and was recording the entire conversation.
Caller: "Can you verify that was Senator Leibham at the gas station this morning?"
Gas station clerk: "Senator Leibham?"
Caller: "Yes. Do you guys support him?"
Clerk: "I have nothing to say about that, I am not politically involved."
Caller: "Alright, well you can tell Dick he's not good for business, I'll tell you that."
Shocked over the 26-second conversation, Hiers quickly traced the call -- only to get surprise number two.
"And it turned out to be coming from the Sheboygan area district school office," he said.
"Obviously our school district equipment and the facilities are for the purposes of school," Superintendent Joseph Sheehan responded. "Any type of phone call leaving any types of threats or condoning any type of intimidation is strictly prohibited."
The superintendent, who was out of the area Friday, said the district's taken what it calls "appropriate disciplinary action."
The woman is a district employee but school officials say that 8:15 call was made before she was on the clock.
As for Dick Hiers, he is still wants answers, saying this week full of surprises is a sign things have gone too far.
It turns out it wasn't the senator but his brother at the gas station.
Senator Leibham, who was not available for comment, has filed an open records request with the school district. The district says it's working on the request.
There will be civil war.
A raise and promotion?
And why should that matter? It is still school property, and she was at work. If it had happened 2 hrs later, could the school claim she was on her morning break?
I thought Wisconsin school district offices were used by the unions as staging areas for their “work.” Why would this surprise anyone?
In Michigan they’re screaming that we’re going to treat them worse than pedophiles and we’ll start shooting them next. LOL
Now - like real-world mafia goons - they're down to threatening gas station guys who do business with their imagined adversaries. From a public school phone of all things.
Incredible, but rich.
Wisconsin has been a been great for revealing the true colors of the union/teacher/lefty establishment. It's also been great for causing them to lose their minds.
Just another concerned Democrat constituent
trying to prevent a Republican lawmaker from
purchasing overpriced fuel.......
Naturally the din from all the denunciations by state dhimmicratic types along with the union bosses was thunderous, right?
We can only hope....
>>>There will be civil war.
Already is. It’s just not a hot war. Yet.
On the clock? Since when do teachers clock in? I thought they were on salary.
By the superintendent's comment, it is clear that "appropriate disciplinary action" means "do nothing".
Ever consider that this is part of Obama's plan? How better for the NWO'ers and the international socialists to invite "international peacekeepers" into the country to monitor elections and keep the peace?
The Russians, Chinese, Libyans, Saudis and Pakistanis and other members of the UN human rights council would love to intervene.
Proof that the left are really hard core communists thugs. These degenerates are beyond being call Americans.
“Superintendent Joseph Sheehan responded. “Any type of phone call leaving any types of threats or condoning any type of intimidation is strictly prohibited.”
Then the employee should have been fired. Not be clocked in is NOT a defense.
Is it okay for teachers to screw their students on the superintendent’s desk, as long as they are on break or haven’t clocked in?
How long do you figure until the shooting war breaks out? I’m guessing it will be the day after the Tea Party gets blamed for some Reichstag event committed by union operatives.
