Protesters find missing state Senate Democrats in Illinois (Tea Party Bounty Hunters!)
jsonline ^ | 2/22/2011 | ap

Posted on 02/22/2011 11:38:20 AM PST by milwguy

One of the 14 Wisconsin senators who has been hiding out in Illinois with his Democratic colleagues says protesters have discovered the hotel where many of the lawmakers are staying.

State Sen. Chris Larson said Tuesday that the senators were trying to keep their locations a secret because they were concerned for their safety. For example, he said, someone e-mailed him threatening to burn down his house.

Larson was speaking by cell phone Tuesday when protesters pulled up in front of his hotel. He said he and his fellow Democrats would likely move, although he wasn't sure whether that meant going to a different hotel or a different city.

The Democrats left the state Thursday to prevent a vote on a Republican Gov. Scott Walker's sweeping bill that would limit unions' collective bargaining

Dog the Bounty Hunter would be proud of us cheeseheads! The new tactic we are employing is to locate the missing Rat State Senators and protest outside the hotel where they are staying. If the union thugs can stink up our beautiful Capitol Building for 8 days, it is time the State Senate Rats felt a little pressure from us taxpayers!

The Illinois governor should declare them a “threat to public safety” and have the state cops escort them to the Wisconsin border.

The Illinois governor is a Democrat and supports the absent Wisconsin legislators without reservation.

Fire their staff members back in Madison. They can’t be doing anything if their bosses are holed up in IL.

These Democrats see themselves as some kind of heroes. DO NOT let themselves present themselves as such. They are siding with UNION BOSSES who pad their election war chests AGAINST THE PEOPLE (VOTERS)! It is clear who’s side they are one, and it is not the taxpayers or general public, or even union workers they claim to represent.

The Illinois governor is a Democrat. This is why the Indiana donks went to Illinois and not Michigan, from what I hear.

There was another thread saying they might be in Harvard, IL (5 miles south of the WI border, just NE of Belvidere). Is that accurate? Wish I could join in the hunt but my business travel is taking me out of IL, not in...

They were hiding because they were concerned for their safety my foot. They’re just a bunch of lying weasels and that’s putting it nicely.

They’ll just move to another motel with the assistance of the Illinois state police, who are also in total support of this strike. As are the Wisconsin state police.

They’ve been playing the victim card for the last two days, that’s their M.O. One of the female members was raving yesterday about how hard the whole thing was on her children.

Meanwhile, Ann Althouse, a local law professor who videoed a group of public works employees who were demonstrating while on the payroll and posted it on YouTube, really got a death threat.

Here in the peoples democratik republik of michiganstan, we have a website that auctions off government surplus....here is the plan (snicker, snicker, snicker) go to their offices and take all the furniture, and list it on the state website. Then, take some of the old beat up furniture that us regular people use, and stack that in their offices. Then, eliminate all monies for office refurb and supplies from their individual budgets. Since they are AWOL, their staff is no longer needed. Fire entire staff, and put money in a fund to help the teachers that missed school to protest...of course, cancel all credit cards, and delete expense accounts. Deduct costs for this from their pay...

Today is mayoral election day in Chicago.

I'll bet the Daley machine has arranged for each of the flea-ing Wisconsin legislators to pop into an out-of-the-way polling place to vote for Rahm.

It's just the hospitable Chicago Way.

Concerned for their safety? House being burned down? Did they take their families also, or did they skip out on them too?

Good question. The Teaparty needs to have signs boycotting the hotels these rats hole up in. The scumbags will run out of places to hide.......

If that is true(which I doubt),do they not have any law enforcement in Wisconsin that they could call and report this to?
