Who is this Randy Hopper we speak of? Why, he is the very same GOP Senator from Fond du Lac who the Winnebago County Democratic Party is trying to recall:
- We are here to recall Senator Hopper because our communities deserve someone who will fight for middle class families, not corporate CEOs and their lobbyists.
- Senator Hopper and Governor Walker have proposed a union busting bill to take collective bargaining rights away from Wisconsin workers. Working families agreed to ALL of the concessions on wages and benefits but they wouldn’t take yes for an answer and continued on insisting on stripping away their rights. We are recalling Senator Hopper because when he ran for office, he promised to continue protecting the rights of Wisconsin workers and he has broken that promise.
- We sent Senator Hopper to Madison to fight for our community. The budget that he and his fellow Republicans just introduced will devastate our local community, gutting school funding, police and fire protection, and many other services people like you and I rely on, all so he can protect his new tax cuts for corporations and CEOs. We’re recalling Senator Hopper so we can stop this horrible budget.
Oh, that Senator Hopper.
[P]rotesters outside the Hopper house this week in Fond du Lac were met by his wife who reportedly came out and told them: Hopper no longer lives there, but with his 25-year-old mistress in Madison. [...]
Two sources in Fond du Lac close to the recall effort say the Hopper maid has signed the legal-sized recall sheet. The maid reportedly said it's likely Hopper's soon-to-be-ex wife will also sign the recall petition.
Oops. So much for family values.
