Because they have the ever imploding Donald Trump as the face of their party, They know that their down ticket elections are in deep peril. This is especially true for Wisconsin's Dumb Senator, Ron Johnson.
Since they started polling, RoJo has been constantly trailing Russ Feingold, usually by 10 or more points. RoJo has consistently been named as one of the most vulnerable senators, if not the most vulnerable. RoJo has accelerated his nosedive in the polls by hitching his campaign wagon to Trump's, even though Trump got trounced in Wisconsin's primary.
So the Republicans do what comes naturally to them. They tried to cheat.
They sent in an incompetent woman to try to be a spy in Feingold's campaign. Yeah, that didn't work out too well:
An apparent Republican activist tried to join Democrat Russ Feingold’s team this week in what Feingold’s campaign suspects was a plot to dig up dirt on him.Not only had Maass already been busted once trying to worm her way into a Democrat's campaign, but tries it again with the most pathetic attempt to disguise her name. But Maass gave herself away before she even set foot in the door:
In an interview with Feingold staff on Wednesday, she initially said she wanted to work on issues affecting women’s health care and unions, but clammed up when confronted about whether she had worked for conservatives and tried to infiltrate Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign in Iowa last year.
“I’m not going to be answering any questions, so if you want me to leave, I’ll leave. If you want me to stay, I’ll stay,” she responded, according to an audio recording provided by the Feingold campaign.
Told she needed to leave, she responded, “Cool! Well, it was great meeting you.”
The woman signed up to be a volunteer as Allison Moss on Tuesday, but was let go Wednesday after the Feingold campaign asked her if she was actually Allison Maass.
Maass is a writer with Campus Reform, a project of the conservative Leadership Institute aimed at exposing liberal bias at universities.
The Feingold sting apparently fell apart thanks to profiling on the part of the campaign. The would-be infiltrator was blonde and drove a big white pickup truck, which staff said was part of the tip off.OK, I don't know what her hair color had to do with it. There are no blonde Democrats?
Anyway, congratulations to Ms Maass for temporarily taking the heat off of RoJo as being the laughing stock of this election..Maxwell Smart has nothing on you.
