Democrat Intimidation Tactics In Kenosha

Kenosha, WI – Dan Hunt, Chairman of Taxpayers to Recall Robert Wirch, is calling on Senator Wirch to denounce the harassing telephone calls to constituents who lawfully signed recall petitions.
Yesterday, hundreds of individuals who signed Wirch recall petitions began receiving harassing phone calls by a telemarketing firm from Minneapolis. The phone callers, paid for by the Democratic Party, were apparently an attempt to trick constituents into believing they had not signed Wirch recall petitions.
“The Democratic Party is clearly attempting to intimidate those who signed the petitions,” said Hunt. “This harassment should be halted immediately and Senator Wirch should denounce the tactics employed by the Democrats in their attempt to disenfranchise recall petitioners.”
The Kenosha antics come on the heels of fraudulent phone calls made to petitions signers in Senator Dave Hansen’s district. “It’s clear the Democrats know their Senators are in danger of losing their seats. But intimidation and fraudulent tactics aren’t a good way to earn back the support of their constituents,” said Hunt.

Taxpayers to Recall Robert Wirch is a citizens group formed to recall State Senator Robert Wirch
for failure to perform his duties for his constituents.
