Wisconsin Senate Democrats Hiding at Resort in Illinois: Local Tea Parties Mobilizing UPDATE: Dems Flee Resort by Publius 17 Feb 2011 post a comment Share This: Abdicating their legislative responsibilities, Wisconsin Senate Democrats are huddling at the Clocktower Resort in Rockford, Illinois. Democrats were poised to lose the vote on an important bill to fix Wisconsin's fiscal crisis, so they picked up their legislative ball and fled the state. Big Government has learned that local tea parties, throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin are planning to protest the legislative cowards at their resort hide-away. It was shocking enough that teachers unions forced a closing of public schools so their members could lobby the legislature. Worse that elected officials would ignore their oath of office and hide away in another state. When did Wisconsin become a banana republic? At least it seems the Democrat senators won't have to rough it while they hide away.
