Activists collecting signatures for the recall of Wisconsin's governor Scott Walker report widespread intimidation from the governor's supporters, including an incident recently captured "on tape" (I'm pretty sure tape wasn't involved). Kudos to the volunteers who stand their ground in the face of harassment from people who think "democracy" includes threatening people who disagree with you.
Reports of harassment have come in from many areas, and on Monday night, Brookfield police arrested a man after one such incident was caught on tape.
"I just thought this guy is out of control. I could just see the steam coming off his head. So I thought, 'Wow, this could be serious,'" volunteer Steve Nagel said.
Nagel said he immediately started recording the incident when Fred Frisby pulled up to the area along Bluemond Road where the volunteers were collecting signatures.
Volunteer Steve Spieckerman said, "He shouted out. He asked me, 'What don't you like about Scott Walker?'"
Spieckerman said Frisby jumped out of his truck when he refused to answer.
"Then he let loose with a torrent of abuse and obscenities," Spieckerman said.
