What happens when a man of privilege,feels he deserves to be in an elected office for life and gets challenged by a strong, intelligent woman?
I think we all know the answer to that. The man feels threatened and so the threats begin.
This cycle has been playing out for ages in our country and it played out again in the 32nd District. Tyler August is the current placeholder and thanks to some unethical gerrymandering, he feels this is his seat for life.
Christine Welcher has other ideas and the people of the 32nd are taking notice. Christine's success and positive message, coupled with Tyler August's /laziness and record of pettiness, has caused Mr. August to fear for his job.
Mr. August losing his job, is unacceptable to many people in the state, who we learned through #walkerdocs rely on non thinking yes men, to pass their regressive agenda.
They then decided to do what they do best....intimidate(or at least try too)!
During what's been contentious election season so far, Lake Geneva police are now investigating vandalism hitting a cluster of campaign signs.
The signs were put up by the Walworth County Democrats along Baker Street in the city. The vandalism happened sometime before Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
Investigators currently do not have any leads in the case.
On Tuesday the fingers of Bob Cole poke through a Russ Feingold sign. He usually just installs them for the Walworth County Democrats - but armed with masking tape and another round of zip-ties - now he's doing rehab.
The most work needs to be done on a campaign sign for Christine Welcher who's running for the assembly seat for the 32nd District.
Someone forced multiple holes into her poster directly on the eye and mouth.
"They only way they could be is someone kicked 'em, beat 'em, chop 'em, cut 'em or something," Cole said.
"To me this looks like hate. Somebody, you know, they go for their face to hurt 'em," Cole said.
Yes it is definitely hate. When you have a Governor whose main policy is this:
When hate is the one product Walker is pedaling, hate is what we get. Unfortunately for him and his crew, Christine Welcher is unintimidated!
That is the kind of person that the people of the 32nd district, and the people of Wisconsin needs fighting for them.
While I doubt Mr. August had anything to do with the blatant hate and vandalism, he has been extremely quiet. A call from him to stop the crimes would be appreciated but do not expect it to come. He has relied on these kind of actions to get elected, and remain in power, so do not expect him to denounce them.
The best way to do that is to vote for Christine Welcher. That is the best message to send these vandals and Mr. August!
Here is her website and her Facebook page. Let's help her become our new Representative. You will not regret it!
