More Republican Dirty Tricks in Wisconsin
What else is new? Every time you think Scott Walker and his fellow Koch Whores couldn’t possibly stoop any lower, they do. Wisconsin Republicans — hereafter referred to as the Wisconsin branch office of Koch Industries — have come up with a scheme to sabotage the upcoming recall election against six Republican state senators.
The recall election is tentatively scheduled for July 12th. Each of the six Republicans subject to a recall are facing one Democratic candidate. Here’s where the sleaze begins. Republicans are planning to prop up a few fake “Democrats” to run in primary races against the Democratic candidates who are already running. If the Republicans are able to pull this off, the primaries will be held on July 12th, thereby postponing the recall election and giving the six embattled Republicans more time to campaign for their positions.
One state GOP leader wrote in a letter to his fellow sleazewipes::
“We need to make sure Democrat challengers face primaries to allow our Republicans time to mount a campaign.”
At least one of the phony “Democrats,” Rol Church, has long been known for taking conservative positions and contributing to conservative causes. Two local Republican leaders bragged in a letter about his fake campaign:
“We can't stress enough how important it is to have Rol on the ballot to combat the shady maneuvers of Madison liberals and their out-of-state allies.”
This is just one more reason — not that we needed yet another one — for Wisconsin residents to vote those Kochsuckers out of office.
