If you want to know why the Democratic Party has went from controlling the legislature and the Governors office to being irrelevant in the state, I can sum it up in two words.
I am not talking about when he threatened Michelle Litjens with violence, thus allowing the Republicans to switch the debate from the horrors of ACT10 to the violence of the Dems. I am also not talking about the fact that he likes to drive without license or insurance. I am not even talking about the fact that in a state where sexual trafficing is a major problem was arrested for visiting prostitutes. I mean come on, in Wisconsin even Robin Vos can get dates(they are usually married but still dates) without paying.
I am actually referring to his latest hot headed rant.
It seems that someone has decided that they want to perform their civic duty in America and run for office. Apparently, they did not get the permission of Mr. Hintz and it does not sit well with him.
From Jessie Opoien and the Cap Times:
This is such a distraction," said Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh. "Think about this. Hopefully all 35 of us (Democrats in the Assembly) are going to come out strongly for Robb. Every dollar and every door that we do for our colleague is another dollar and another door that we’re not doing in a Republican district that we can win. When we pick up a seat or two fewer in the fall, I’m going to think about these so-called progressive hypocrites that went after this unnecessary seat to make themselves happy or to high-five their friends at the co-op."Let's take a look at this statement:
There are 35(out of 99 seats) in the assembly that are democrats, That means they have lost 64 seats to Republicans. I am not sure how many doors and dollars they have spent trying to win some of the 64 Republican seats but it is not working.
* "Progressive Hypocrites" like the vast majority of elected Democratic elected officials who came out strong for Hillary Clinton despite her poor record on Human rights and middle class job?
* He has managed so far to completely rip on the part of the Democratic base that belongs to Co-Ops. Now we know why they voted for Nader.
