Beyond the broken glass voter
You’ve heard of voters that would crawl over broken glass to vote against somebody? They’re wimps compared to Terry Kopplin.
Janis Strucel, one of Kopplin’s seven children, said her father planned to vote at his ward on 82nd and Nash in Milwaukee. But he was taken by ambulance to the hospital for the stent, which she said saved her father’s life.
She described her father as a staunch Republican and lifetime NRA member who was determined to vote today. After he woke up from the surgery, his children called one of his buddies to take an absentee ballot application to City Hall to get him a ballot. The plan was to have him fill out the ballot at the hospital and then take it back to the city.
“I will not die knowing I contributed to putting Barrett in office,” Strucel said her father declared today.
