Yes, you read that correctly. I just caught these pictures on Twicpic via @ericming5 that they are bolting the windows shut in the capital building in Madison Wisconsin.
The bolt tops have been taken of make it impossible to open the windows. How is this not a fire hazard and how is this okay to treat your citizens this way?
Now, this is what I’ve gathered — they started kicking people out of the capital this afternoon saying that they had to clean (who knows if this is true or not. I’ve got people saying it was gross. I’ve got others telling me that the people were cleaning it themselves. One of the sources for that statement is the Chicago Tribune over the weekend). However, NOW they are not letting anyone back in. The ACLU is now involved. They are now seeking an injunction to permit public to freely enter Capitol. Also, Senate Org Comm is circulating ballot requiring Majority Leader’s signature on all paychecks of Sen. Dem employees. What the essentially means is that they will NOT get paid until the Democrats return.
Even though I no longer live in Wisconsin, this makes me ill. Please tell me that this is NOT how you treat Americans.
(If I hear any more about this tonight, I’ll update this post.)
PS Mainstream media – How are you NOT covering this???!!!???
