Waukesha Freeman January 14, 2016 Page A6 Opinion Barca’s search for civility Gannon’s finger wave hardly only incident I must have missed something. When state Rep. Bob Gannon, a Republican, made an obscene gesture to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca, the fake outrage was just silly. Reporters took to Twitter and Facebook to report the […]

Republicans have chance of holding state Senate Nygren story does not inspire confidence  Can we dispense with the obvious? Democrats were already spinning Tuesday’s election results as “building momentum” in the recall elections. It’s a clear example of “say anything and hope it sticks.” Democratic state Sen. Dave Hansen defeated recall organizer David VanderLeest rather […]

The failure is complete. State Representative John Nygren will not be running a write-in campaign in the recall election of Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen. Nygren only turned in 424 nomination signatures, practically begging the Democratic Party to challenge the. The minimum needed is 400, but Nygren could have turned in many more to protect […]

Holy Watergate! Are there no limits on what the Democrats will do in this state? Green Bay police are investigating an apparent break-in at the office of the “Recall Dave Hansen”effort at 1136 W.

WTMJ-AM radio talk show host Jeff Wagner points out why fugitive State Senators Bob Wirch, Jim Holperin and Dave Hansen are the nominees for the most-likely-to-be-recalled award. Democrat Bob Wirch basically represents Kenosha County. Kenosha County consists of three very distinct districts ( a Senate District equals three Assembly Districts): the City of Kenosha ( […]

The recall campaign against fugitive State Senator Dave Hansen now has a website. The website has a link for downloading recall petitions and other information. Here’s a picture of Hansen in disguise in Illinois on his way to the hotel pool. Print this entry

It seems to me we should have a contest to see which recall campaign will be the first to turn in enough valid signatures to recall a fugitive State Senate Democrat.  The leading contestants are Jim Holperin, Bob Wirch, and Dave Hansen.  Of course, Julie Lassa could always sneak ahead of the boys. (The deal to […]

Randy Melchert is keeping track of efforts to recall Democratic State Senators, complete with links to petitions and ways to donate. Looking at the map, I have to think Wirch, Hansen and Holperin are in serious trouble. By the way, wouldn’t it be funny if State Senator Julie Lassa was recalled? That deal to run […]
