Wisc. Democrats Getting Killed In The Court Of Public Opinion Do Publicity Stunt They Move Desks Out Of Capitol

The Wisconsin Senate Democrats are hiding out in Illinois. Now, the Wisconsin Assembly Democrats are moving their desks outside.

Wisconsin Legislators Move Desks Out of Capitol Locked Down By Governor

On Wednesday, a number of Democrats state Assembly members began meeting with the people they represent along the outside wall of the Capitol, beneath a banner that read: “Assembly Democrats Are Open for Business.”

“We are out here because our governor and the Department of Administration are ignoring a judge’s court order,” said Assembly minority leader Peter Barca, who was joined by state representatives Fred Clark, Nick Milroy and Cory Mason.

With them was former US Representative Dave Obey, a Democrat who began his political career as an Assembly member.

Obey said that, on Wednesday, he was denied entry to the Capitol for the first time in his five decades of public service and active citizenship.


Wild Thing's comment.........

From the DOA blog, the Capitol looked to be OPEN just as the court said it should. So what’s his beef?? This taking the desks outside was just to get attention.

Imagine how much Repubs could accomplish if they had the backing of the “media” that the Dems have.

I heard a report yesterday that there has been approx. 7.5 million dollars worth of damage done to the Wisconsin Capitol building. Most of it was damage to the granite but it cannot be confirmed yet. Wouldn't surprise me though since the union brown shirts are a very violent bunch of commie thugs.

What's with liberals and trashing public property? After obama's inauguration the US Capitol grounds looked like a tornado had come through. I wonder what the White House will look like after obama leaves.

OMA - Oh My Allah..... Casbah forbid that infidels would realize that ILLINOIS is the home state of Barack HUSSEIN Obama? They can have their 5 major prayer calls today, but in Delaware today I proudly say, "TGIF and Thank GOD It's Friday!" Infidels get to double dip for SUNDAY is also our Sabbath... Imagine that? Amen, eh?
