Republican Contributer Harassing Female Recall Scott Walker Petition Signer

December 10, 2011

Family values from the crowd who brought you Scott Walker.

A Hartland man told 27 News he used television news video to contact people who signed recall petitions against Governor Scott Walker, prompting at least one person to contact police.

“It wasn’t a harassing call by any means,” Kevin Stoll told 27 News.

A Dane County resident named Michelle, who asked that her identity be kept private because Stoll had already obtained some of her personal information, characterized a call she received from him Nov. 25 as harassing.

“It’s 10:30 at night and there’s apparently somebody who knows where you live. It’s just a very unnerving and frightening feeling.”

Michelle said Stoll was a stranger to her, refused to identify himself and challenged her to defend her decision to sign a recall petition.

“When this person seemed to be getting a little bit hostile, I ended the phone call and immediately contacted the authorities.”

    Patrick is disingenuous when he says that he expects people to behave with respect, but then excuses the behavior of people who harass those who disagree with them.

    they called the protesters all kinds of names like thugs. you gotta wonder who are the real thugs. and it was a bully thug who thought that he was talking to one of the koch brothers and admitted that he thought of bringing in trouble makers. when you have thousands of people and not one of them did any thing that even resembles being a thug were peacefull and well oraganized. may have been loud and had drums but they still respected others. it was the bully thug we have for a governor who started this mess and this will not stop him until we stop him. he has torn this state to shreds and the people are hell bent on putting it back to the way it should be. never ever before were out state workers so hated and vilified as they are now and some people still really believe that they were making tons of money in wages. they were fed so many lies and never did any real fact checking. it’s time they do and educate themselves on who really cares about the people and who cares about the rich and wealthy.

    I think the message is that Patrick will apologize, minimize and explain away any threatening behavior on that side, because It’s okay if a conservative does it. That and Mary Jo Baas (married to Scott Jensen flunky Steve, who assaulted a television reporter in the Capitol, IOKIACDI) warning that petition signers might open themselves up to harassment. Gee, a supression campaign much? I hope every case of harassment is prosecuted, including the Stoll joker who called another woman twice and when she let her machine pick up the third time called her an expletive coward for not answering (described in main story in the link above). Expose the creeps for who they are. And if someone on the other side damages a car with a Walker sticker, or threatens someone, they should be prosecuted too. See Patrick, it’s not that hard to say.

    Why would ANYONE be surprised by this kind of behavior? These are the same sort who say they are fervent believers in a Supreme Being but make a point of “giving the middle finger” to persons legally and legitimately collecting recall signatures. (They’re also the folks who respond with inspired vitriol to anyone who disagrees with them in newspaper forums.) My hope is that anyone who does this kind of childish nonsense gets nailed by the very laws and ordinances they say they want to uphold.

    I think the message has to be that any conservative who is rude or threatening can expect punishment. As conservatives, we expect people to behave with respect and reconcile ourselves to the fact that there is a double standard in terms of what behavior is going to be reported and prosecuted. It is better, in this case, to be on the side which will be held to account because, as is sacrastically mentioned above, we care about families and neighbors, not just ourselves.
