« CQ Flashback: Why I Support George Bush (3/1/04) | Main | Democratic Pollster Predicts Bush Victory »
Unfortunately, some people believe that they have the prerogative to determine who can and cannot vote in today's election. In Milwaukee, thirty rental vans that were intended to help GOP voters get to the polls to exercise their franchise rights had their tires slashed, presumably in an attempt to keep Wisconsin from slipping away from John Kerry:
The tires of at least 30 cars and vans rented by the Republican Party to carry voters to the polls were slashed, Milwaukee police said this morning. The discovery was made at 6:30 a.m., said Sgt. Mark Wroblewski.
The rental cars were parked near a GOP office in the 7100 block of W. Capitol Dr. Wroblewski said "at least" 30 cars were disabled. At least one tire was slashed and in some cases, all four tires were cut. Detectives were on the scene, the sergeant said. Police had no suspects in custody as of 8 a.m.
Milwaukee police said just after noon today that they have a suspect description. A private security guard reported a man running from where the tires were slashed, said Sgt. Ken Harris.
The guard reported seeing a white male, 18 to 25 years old, 5-feet-6 to 5-feet-9 tall, 170 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans, running from the Republican offices around 6:45 a.m., Harris said.
Milwaukee police detectives typically would not investigate a case of slashed tires but were put on the case given the potential political overtones of this crime, Harris said.
I know that this idiot in no way represents Wisconsin Democrats, but instead is a part of a small but insidious element on the radical Left that uses any means necessary to achieve what they cannot through democratic means. It's the same mentality that led to the riots in Seattle during the WTO conference a few years ago, and to the violence from radical environmentalists like the Earth Liberation Front, among others.
The best revenge is to make sure all the people this drooling moron tried to handicap still gets to the polls today.Sphere It View blog reactions
