New Tone: WI “Recall Hansen” office burglarized – computer, some petition sigs stolen

Posted by: ST on April 18, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Via Green Bay’s NBC26:

Speculation swirling tonight surrounding a burglary at a recall headquarters. Organizers trying to recall Senator Dave Hansen say police are now involved after someone smashed a window swiping petitions and a computer. Now, the leader of the effort is accusing one group of committing the crime.

The burglary comes just days after the recall Hansen group announced they had enough signatures for a recall election. Campaign organizer David Vander Leest says he’s angry and has reason to believe a certain group is responsible because the vandals only took things connected to the recall.


Only about 150 signatures were taken Vander Leest says even without those names they still have enough to file their Petition.

The Green Bay Press Gazette has more:

The burglar or burglars broke a window to make entry, police said. The incident occurred between 5 p.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday, police Lt. David Paral said.

Organizers of the effort, in an email to media, blamed the break-in on “the (opposition) of ‘Recall Dave Hansen.'” Police said they did not have descriptions of suspects.

Total value of the missing items is slightly more than $1,000, Paral said.

Now, I just can’t think of anyone who would want to do a thing like this … /sarc

    Shocking! Clearly, the Senator had nothing to do with this… Union thugs notwithstanding.

    All a part of the new and improved civil discourse demanded by the fruitcakes.

    A $5 token to the union fund would get you this breakin.
    Don’t wait for the DOJ to act.
    Holder is a frustrated black panther. I can just see him now in his black uniform and shiny silver gun and buckles, but the stiletto heels don’t go with the uniform very well.
