Fire destroys Democratic recall group's headquarters

A fire in downtown La Crosse on Saturday destroyed local headquarters for We Are Wisconsin, a Democratic organizing group, in addition to some apartments. No injuries were reported. A cause hasn't been identified, fire officials said.

Firefighters began battling the blaze about 9:30 a.m. We Are Wisconsin staff were inside when the fire broke out and escaped safely, group spokeswoman Kelly Steele said.

Peggy Hatfield and Cathy Dunaway of Madison noticed the blaze while getting coffee near the building about 10 a.m.

"You could see smoke coming out of the top of the building," Hatfield said.

Looks like a typical Democrat fund-raising technique.

“Oh, no! Our HQ burnt down (and we’re broke). Please send us money today.”

That pretty much negates any claim of arson by the opposition.

I knew you were waiting so here it is:

“If I believed in conspiracy theories, I would really be suspicious about a huge fire this weekend in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. After all, this is a state where the Republican legislature arrogantly broke the open meetings law on live, national television and the Republicans created phony primaries to delay the recall elections for six Republican state senators. But, what the hay, why should anyone think there is anything suspicious about these a fire which took out two Democratic headquarters in one blaze?.............”

They might very well have torched the place themselves in order to arouse sympathy.

They have committed vandalism on their facilities in other areas for the same purpose. The Mob couldn’t be more corrupt.

It would not be surprising to learn that the Democrats themselves did this, to then in turn blame it on political enemies.

false flag operation or a Reichstag fire.

Libtards will blame Walker and the Koch brothers even before the fire is put out

I guess their recall elections didn't pan out and now it's time to slander and demonize the opposition

The recall effort had not been as productive as they hoped. They were destroying evidence of voter fraud. Not to mention get sympathy, over @ DU you would swear they have video of Bush in black spandex torching the joint.

Wisconsin’s governor has won. The results are coming in, deficits turning into surpluses. The other side is getting desperate.

Whenever a liberal suffers this kind of crime, my first assumption is that it was self-inflicted. I rarely have to change that assumption.

Burning evidence?

They're Democrats, so it's not a question of if a crime has been committed, but rather a question of what crime has been committed.

IF she beleived in conspiracy theories? I’m surprised none of her ilk went into default mode and blamed it on Bush43. This is the same mindset who beleives that John Lennon was murdered by the CIA. If anything, if this were arson some union thugs or DNC operative would more likely be behind it. Or perhaps Bill Ayers and Bernie Dohrn may have reverted to their old ways?

“We Are Wisconsin staff were inside when the fire broke out and escaped safely”

“That pretty much negates any claim of arson by the opposition.”

My thought exactly. Initially, I thought they’d claim arson (and no investigation could be completed before the recall elections). They’d have gained that strategic advantage.

They're Democrats, so it's not a question of if a crime has been committed, but rather a question of what crime(s) has been committed.

100 % correct and fixed it for you

Two houses of dem ill repute toasted in one fire ? There must be evidence of multiple crimes

Well,,, there were some apartments burnt up too. Somebody probably left the stove on. Of course I’m assuming the apartments were upstairs above the offices, which might not be the case.

“You could see smoke coming out of the top of the building,” Hatfield said.

Have to wait for the results of the investigation.
