While I am no huge fan of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, she made an appearance at the Milwaukee Athletic Club to promote the female lineup of Democratic candidates we have in WI. She then made a very strong statement:
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch came out of hiding to tell us she was shocked by the language!!
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz ripped into Republican Gov. Scott Walker's record Wednesday during a round-table discussion on women's issues at the Milwaukee Athletic Club.
The Florida congresswoman said: "Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality."
Wasserman Schultz added: "What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch."
Republican Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch said she was "shocked" that Wasserman Schultz used domestic violence language to discuss political disagreements.
"I think the remarks were absolutely hideous and the motive behind them was despicable," Kleefisch said.
Kleefisch called on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke to "denounce these outrageous statements" made by the DNC leader.
Yes domestic violence is no joke, raping young girls is something we can joke about in Wisconsin but Domestic violence is off limits!
Number of Walker/Kleefisch "denouncements" of Roger Rivard - zero.
Domestic abuse is absolutely 100% no joke and no way I would ever support someone who had been accused and arrested for it before!*
*Unless of course said person is running on the republican ticket for Wisconsin State Senate and has given lots of money to the "friends of Scott Walker campaign". Then he can't be all bad can he?

As a matter of fact :
Nevertheless, his early fundraising was strong enough to put him in second place among state legislative candidates through the first half of the year, and he said recent fundraisers — including one last weekend with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch — pushed his campaign past $100,000, giving him a rare lead over the incumbent.
Again, Domestic Abuse is something that is so serious and hideous it should never ever be talked about. Sexual Abuse on the other should be covered up and rewarded. Hey at least the republican leader from Waukesha never hit a woman!*
* I know the republicans eventually removed him from leadership, but yet allowed it to happen over and over until he got caught by an outside source. They were also so upset and disgusted with his actions they allowed him to keep his job and benefits. Bill Kramer is still being paid full salary and benefits by the taxpayers of Wisconsin thanks to republican inaction.

I guess Ms. Kleefisch gets selectively "shocked".
