Vandals Break In WI Office – Steal Fleebagger Recall Petitions Hours After It Was Announced Enough Signatures Were Collected (Video)

On Thursday Wisconsin conservatives announced that they had collected enough signatures 15,000 to recall fleebagger Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay.

Then this happened…

Vandals broke into a Wisconsin political office late Thursday or Friday morning and ripped off the fleebagger recall petitions. (WTAQ)

How convenient.
Vandals broke in and stole computers and recall petitions from a Wisconsin political office late last week.

    This is what fascism looks like.

  • Frank H

    Were they really dumb enough to make this announcement and then not have copies made and stored offsite? I mean, REALLY?

    I sincerely hope not.

  • Joanne

    This is what the right are up against. It may be time to start behaving like you are at war, because whether you have woken up or not, you are at war, and the left are your enemies. You can’t count on the common decency of your opponents – they don’t even know what decency is, let alone what used to be termed ‘common decency’.

    I agree, Taxpayer #5, but aren’t the police/investigators members of unions who don’t support the recalls? I guess there’s always hope…

  • Sasja

    Operating in the current political climate, you tell me no one involved in the recall petition thought to secure these documents let alone their computers? You folks better wake up or else you will find yourselves being eaten by that wolf. I am really concerned about the naivete of some of our conservative brethren. We are in a war for the very soul of this nation and if any of you do not understand nor recognize how to fight against this evil, we are lost.

    Were they so stupid as to leave them unattended in the office and not in a sealed vault or in the care of a trusted official after making that announcement? Someone obviously knew that the papers were left in the office and ratted it out to the leftist thugs.

  • Jack

    Haven’t they learned that these liars, cheats and thiefs will stop at nothing? Surely they had a video security system.

  • nohype

    For most of the people on the right, process matters. They accept results if they think the process was fair even if they do not like the results. For too many people on the left, process does not matter. Only results matter. They will not accept results they do not like even if the process was fair and they have problems with cheating the process to get the results they want.

    I hope what is happening in Wisconsin it opening some eyes.

  • gman

    You know damn well this was orchestrated by the democrat officials in WI.

  • nelle

    Quit blaming the victims; it only makes it easier for the criminals to justify their crimes…”well, if they’re so stupid…”
    People should be going to prison here.

  • BH

    Don’t blame the workers, blame the slimeballs who did this. The recall group obviously didn’t expect this to happen but someone on the inside may have ratted them out. Once burned twice learned applies here. I’m surprised the thugs are taking Breitbart’s advice and ARE going to hell! Every time I read “Powder is dry,” I smile!!

    Somone call Bob Woodward…Remember, the leftist forced the resignation of a President over Nixon aides burglarizing Democratic campaign headquarters…MSM investigates in 4,3,2,1…How about never!

  • does anyone here think this action will be condemned by any of the morally superior democratic politicans.

  • The next group that collects enough signatures needs to make a similar announcement…and then wait inside with their guns.

    Sound like “WATERGATE” Eric Holder will be right on it.

    Backup everything and store copies off site. That HAS to be the mantra.

    @Gwilllie commented:

    I guess the petitioners could try to submit the ashes or the shreds of their petitions. Seriously, this should be regarded as a felony, but then the judges and prosecutors and district attorneys and police all depend on Wisconsin for their pensions…

    They’ll have to start over again and this time, store the petitions in a safe deposit box at M&I Bank!

  • i sick of all you people that blame the victim. you right its not the fault of the people that BROKE in to steal the petitions it is the fault of the people that didn’t bury them in ft. knox. well they were locked up, if they weren’t they wouldn’t have had to break in.

  • Pat the First

    I hope they have copies, but I am not sure copies will work. I think they probably have to be originals for such a recall. The election board could make an exception, but I am not going to hold my breath on that one.

  • postturtledoctor

    Democrats are now not only the party of the Confederacy and the Klan, but they’re the party of Nixon now too.

  • 2012 is going to be this generation’s version of Bloody Kansas. The issue is still slavery, this time with the goonions — aided by commies, holding the finacial whip over the taxpayers.

    The buildup is evident, the result is inevitable.

  • Capn Angus

    This is much bigger than Watergate. The only thing the burglars go in Watergate was Demo. strategy. This could conceivably alter Wisconsin’s political landscape. People should be doing serious time here.

  • MN Jim

    Interesting that the media refers to this breakin as “vandals’. I bet it was carefully coordinated, maybe some inside information, professional job. Don’t worry, Holder will be right on it to protect “my people.” On second thought, where was Holder Friday night?

  • dwd

    This is the enemy. This is the quality and caliber of people on the LEFT.

    Republicans/conservatives are dumba$$es for announcing it and then leaving them unsecured. Unless, of course, they had some high-def security cameras running and can prove Democrats did it… that would be epic. But I doubt it.

  • Dan

    What would have been sweet is for them to announce that they were hoding them and where, then put fake copies in with video cameras. Why does our side think we can play by the rules? We are dealing with political terrorists that sure don’t.

  • DomesticGoddess

    Sadly, there are people who walk both sides of the street. Sounds like a dem plant worked in the office and provided the “what, where, and when” to the “thieves!”

  • Rachelle

    There it is. The unions are Fascists at heart. Even the word ‘Fascist’ found its modern use from the Italian word for union. They are scum.

  • apodoca

    Silly GOPers. We have to put ourselves in the minds of the communist Democrats and act to protect ourselves and the country. These people are against freedom and the Constitution. We have to ask ourselves, “what will they do to prevent something they don’t desire from occurring?” Then we have to provide worst case scenario answers and adapt our behavior accordingly. This is chess and GOPers are playing checkers. Think three moves ahead.

  • mike191

    To all the Dems :when are you going to repudiate these actions .Your party has been hi-jacked by vile people.Those who committ crimes to stop the function of law and prevent the process of democracy, should not be role models of your Party.When people of your party boo the National Anthem,burn the flag,and want to injure others ….ad nauseum,do you say :good show or does your blood boil?

    Good God. How low are the democrats willing to go to regain power, and hold it where they have it.
    I would think that the organisation could replace those petitions in a week.
    That was an act of war perpetrated by the left against the right.

    O/T but…Government at all levels have installed doomsday clocks for the Republic. Here are a few:

    -Illegal immigration
    -Overspending which creates Debt/Inflation/Currency destruction
    -50% of the working age population pay no taxes so they can vote themselves benefits paid for by others
    -Subsidizing bad behavior, illegal immigration, welfare, medicaid, section eight housing

    These are a few of the doomsday clocks that if not corrected will destroy the Republic. Something no foreign enemy could do…

  • LarryBrasfield

    When there is the opportunity to do so where I live, I’ll be volunteering to spend a few nights protecting petitions intended to help the people regain control. Just a warning to the LibTards, commies and union thugs: I scare very easily, and I will have an extra weapon with me to place in your cooling hands to help the police and D.A. appreciate that I had good cause for my self-protective action. Don’t expect any further warnings.

    The entire state of Wisconsin would burn if this happened. So let’s get to it.

  • eaglewingz08

    The satisfaction of requirements should not be announced until after the petitions are filed with the appropriate authorities with copies kept on an offsite server not in the actual offices where democraps can break in. If this was a republican operation it would be all over the lamestream media. Yet, not a major story was written about this.

  • Blame both for this. The Left has been signaling they were willing to maim, vandalize and commit crimes to get their way for a long time. To not have the signatures secured somewhere safe is just stupid, but does expose the major difference between the Left and the Right throughout history. We simply don’t think like shi*bag criminals and that keeps getting us tripped up.

    So where can we donate to the effort to publicize this criminal conspiracy, and fund a renewed effort to collect recall signatures?

    Those idiots do not realize that they made our job that much easier.

    What better way to convince the world that they people are throwback gangsters than to have them prove it–IN PLAIN SIGHT?

    Will we now hear the hagiographers in the media proclaim the “courage” of these “brave individuals” who rose up to fight the “tyranny” that us sane people call Democracy?

    The unions are slowly alienating common-sense society. There was a union rally here in Boston the past week and I have never seen a more pathetic group of slovenly fat people shouting bitter, angry rhetoric at everyday people as they exited an office building downtown. Why? Because Goldman Sachs has an office on one of the floors. They intimidated lowly interns and secretaries who worked for the other tenants without restraint. Literally disgusting because of the spittle and halitosis.

    Every single one of them was truly fat-and most were semi-literate.

    Keep it up.

    Sadly, I fear that the prevention of a totalitarian form of government and/or the preservation of the Union will necessitate a civil war, where many of our loved ones will perish. As the Constitution and will of the PEOPLE are abandoned more openly by Government, Pelosi’s admission that prior to the Tea Party – both parties had the same agenda for the USA, the transfer of TARP and Bail out fund primarily to banks in other Nations, the implementation of policies, even by Bush, to indoctrinate our children [24 hour school experiments, social reform for the next generation agenda, etc.], and Administrative Bureaucracies are touted as having superior legislative authority to Congress – People will be forced to choose – Sit back and watch the demise of the greatest nation on earth, or take action. I pray for wise choices, and the preservation of the Union. Yet, there would be no NATO preventing the slaughter of citizens here, as was done in Waco, Ruby Ridge, Freeman Compound, etc.

    With a heavy heart, I pray: Long live the USA, and the freedom we all take for granted.
