Wisconsin State Senator Chris Larson’s office swept my email address from this blog and sent me the email shown below. Unfortunately for Senator Larson, he made the mistake of thinking that I support him, his efforts to boycott the State Senate vote on the Wisconsin Budget, his union thug co-conspirators, or the lawless public employees in Wisconsin who illegally staged “sickouts” to attend the protest. He shamelessly used his “heroic” boycott to pander for even more political activism contributions. Their goal is to recall Governor Walker and the 18 Republicans who voted to reel in the power of the public union’s collective bargaining throughout the state.
I ask each and every one of you to contact your local Tea Party to donate/support to the recall of Wisconsin State DEMOCRAT Senators like Chris Larson who actually violated the oath of his office by boycotting the Senate sessions. The unions and the Wisconsin Progressives are actively trying to raise money to recall Walker and the Republicans in the Wisconsin State Senate.

The following is my response to Senator Larson:
Dear Senator Larson:
Thank you for finally realizing that you represent constituents in Wisconsin and not in Illinois. As a prior local elected official, your act of cowardice in fleeing from the fight is appalling and an affront to our way of life. In the future, please remain on the floor of the senate and fight like a man of character not a hired gun for the unions.

This is Wisconsin State Senator Chris Larson — and this weekend, I’m home in Wisconsin to join the fight in person.
The last three weeks have shown what progressive strength and worker solidarity look like.
My fellow senators and I know that thousands of PCCC members in Wisconsin and across the nation have been fighting right alongside us — attending rallies, making phone calls, donating to some great TV ads, and telling your friends about the Republican war on workers.
I want to say thank you. I also want to let you know that the fight’s not over.
Republicans need to learn what accountability feels like. It’s time for Republican senators to be recalled from office.
The PCCC just opened up an official Recall Committee in Wisconsin — which will mobilize volunteers and run new ads against vulnerable Republicans. Please chip in $3 to help fund this vital work.
Wisconsin Republicans brazenly stampeded over the will of the people as they engaged in their right-wing attack on workers.
They shut down the public hearings, they shut down the legislative hotline, they shut down debate in the Assembly in the middle of the night, and they tried to lock citizens out of the Capitol. And on Wednesday night, when they had their last chance at redemption, Republican senators chose to bend the rules and join Governor Walker’s war on working families.
The citizens of Wisconsin are rising up and engaging in the democratic process like never before. Recalls of the Republicans are kicking into high gear as clipboards begin to replace protest signs in neighborhoods across the state.
Governor Walker and Republican senators refused to listen to the public — but now the people will be heard all across the state at the ballot box.
Please help us win this fight by chipping in $3 to the PCCC’s Recall Committee.
Thanks again for standing with us in solidarity, and for being a bold progressive.
