Their world is coming apart and there’s nothing they can do about it. Lashing out is all they have left.
UPDATE: There’s a bit of spin this morning on Patch from the Racine GOP. They have, as expected, denied the incident ever happened and if it did, it’s the victim’s fault.
Bill Folk [the Chairman of the Racine GOP] issued the following statement, “I find Gallaher’s comments outrageous. I know the person in question snapped a few photos, which I have seen and we know for a fact that the recallers took at least 4 photos. It is clear from the photos that the person is not in the parking lot…never entered the parking lot so how is it that he “ran through the parking lot” and “almost back(ed) over a retired police officer”…was the retired officer in the road way?!?
“It’s time for the recallers to stop fabricating facts about the pro-Walker movement and get on with trying trying to overturn the will of the people of Wisconsin.”
Reports are coming, initially from the unstoppable Root River Siren, that a Racine Republican Party operative attempted to run down a recall signature gatherer.
From an e-mail in the possession of your humble blogger:
The cop [the driver attempted to strike with his car] was smart and took pictures of the guy’s car and the Siren put it up and within two hours we had confirmation the driver was the Racine County Republican Treasurer, Tom Bode. A police report was filed yesterday….
Like the animals we always knew them to be, these elephants are lashing out now that we have them cornered. I expect to hear about the dismissal of Mr. Bode forthwith.
