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.
