Typical union thuggery.
Things are heating up in Wisconsin, as campaign signs for Gov. Scott Walker reportedly have been burned in two towns.
At least eight signs for the Republican governor, who faces a recall election on June 8 against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, were set on fire in Fox Point and Oak Creek, according to WTMJ-TV and WTMJ-AM.
“I feel angry,” Oak Creek resident Gerry Willie, whose “Stand with Walker” sign was destroyed, told Newsradio 620. “I feel it’s just another indication of the bullying going on in this state for a year.”
Jamie Schumaker, of Fox Point, said his Walker sign was reduced to ashes the day after he put it up.
“You’d like to disagree agreeably and not have to resort to something like this,” Schumaker told TMJ4.
The Fox Point Police Dept. says it will send out extra patrols. There have been no arrests.
Willie, who plans to put up new signs, has an idea to prevent future vandalism.
”We’re probably going to coat them with liquid pepper,” he said, “so if they want to pick them up, they’ll have a little trouble getting it off their hands.”
