How desperate are Wisconsin Republicans getting in their attempts to recall the Democratic State Senators who are eligible to be recalled?
So desperate they’ve allegedly hired convicted felons to do canvassing to collect signatures:
s Democrats around the State canvass areas to gain enough signatures to recall the remaining 6 of 8 Republican Senators it appears that the Republican Party in charge of the committee to recall Senator Dave Hansen has had trouble finding volunteers. So they have enlisted the help of felons out of the state of Colorado. Yes that’s right my friends, those people for the Republican Party coming to your door asking for your signature to recall Senator Hansen is probably a felon and as your attention is focused on saying no as you push the clipboard away, that felon is scoping out your home or car for souvenirs’ to take home to Colorado with them.
According to police reports, the convicted felon in question is Brent Levi Harrell, a felon from Colorado who stole a jacket and backpack from Lambeau Field while staying at a hotel in Green Bay. According to PolitiScoop’s sources, Harrell was staying at the Roadstar Inn in Green Bay to collect signatures for the recall effort against Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen.
