I was wrong. Yep. The screw up was all mine. Not because it never happened, but when it happened. I had heard this all from a friend but the date was utterly wrong. All of this took place in the week before the protests even started and there are witnesses to this event. (This from someone who only wishes to be known as “a credible source”.)
UPDATE #2: A few pertinent remarks by the original blogger of this report. Please go read. Meantime, I left a voice mail at the restaurant, but I agree with Naomi Houser, they must be swamped with calls. I expect no response.
UPDATE: Now we’re being told this was a hoax. I hate when that happens. If this is the case, my apologies for falling for it.
[A tavern] in Madison, WI confirms that on Friday night, Patrick Sweeney (one of the owners) politely asked Scott Walker to leave the establishment when other customers began boo-ing him. A bartender at The Merchant said that, “his presence was causing a disturbance to the other customers and management asked him to leave.“
I won’t link directly to the restaurant because, along with enthusiastic support, it is also getting threats. I’m sure those are from the very wealthy, lazy, hammock-swinging, resort-lollygagging, ungrateful union thugs who utterly resent all the anti-Walker passion (obvious sarcasm).
Here’s hopes that this is just the beginning of the more intimate side of public scorn that Walker will experience… peacefully, of course.
Walker: The rejected weenie of Wisconsin.
Added: I have no idea if this photo is by Terry Border or not, but happy to add his name to the post just in case.
