MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A pedestrian bridge over Interstate 90 has linked the two sides of a western Wisconsin burg for decades, providing a test of courage for bike-riding children and a symbol of home for travelers returning from Minnesota.
Over the last year, the town of Campbells overpass has become the front line in a Hatfield vs. McCoy free-speech clash between a tea party activist and the police chief.
The fight was spurred by last summers national push for tea party overpass protests calling for President Barack Obamas impeachment. Nowhere, though, has the protest caused as much of an uproar as in Campbell.
The local tea party alleges the town and Police Chief Tim Kelemen are trying to curtail their free-speech rights by banning signs on the overpass. The chief, for his part, maintains tea party supporters responded to the ordinance by deluging his agency with complaints and threats. So, he fought back by registering one of the partys leading activists with websites for gay dating, pornographic and federal health care.
Now Keleman could lose his job and possibly face criminal charges.

Can Gov Walker appoint a special prosecutor?
Sounds like the LEO needs to be brought to heel.
Let me get this right: A police chief signed up someone he clashed with for Obamacare, homosexual dating and porn? And he’s still working and a sworn officer of the law? If only the Schutzstaffel had been able to utilize the Internet!
I hope he does. That's inexcusable.
“So, he fought back by registering one of the partys leading activists with websites for gay dating, pornographic and federal health care.”
He did this as an elected official?
We are to understand the official is alleged to have fraudulently registering a citizen for gay dating? Do I understand this correctly? While he was holding public office, no less?
If I am not misunderstanding, that is far above and beyond what he should be doing.
But he was brought to his wit’s end by these hoards that wouldn’t respect his authority.
Ha Ha, too bad.
He had better.
He’s not a real cop....just another wannabe-cop. About forty percent of the nations cops need a drug-test, a mental stability test, and a financial background check to toss them out of their jobs.
You can bet that if the shoe were on the other foot, the Tea Party people would already be in jail awaiting charges, or on their way to prison.
The fact that these crimes were committed by a so-called "law enforcement official" makes them an order of magnitude worse. It's time for the town to dismiss this jackass, and for the DA to bring charges appropriate to the crimes.
Actually it appears he is being brought to his end by his half wits.
The story indicates that he initially lied to investigators. In the LE world a record of false statements makes you useless. He needs to be fired.
In any event, he should be facing obstruction charges as well as identity theft.
“Kelemans lawyer, Jim Birnbaum, counters that the tea party pushed his client to the edge.”
How shall we interpret this??? LOL!
Have at it!
It also makes it highly likely that this wasn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened. In the video, he sounds like one of those “this is my town” types.
Where did this take place? Campbell?
I’ve looked on three road maps for Wisconsin and the closest I can come to Campbell is a Campbellsport which is in the eastern part of the state and nowhere near I-90.
Sounds like the typical liberal.
Throw the police chief in prison. Maybe then he will gain a true understanding of sodomy.
