Disgusting GOP trick in #Wisconsin

Tqnews, our best bet to beat Scott Walker next week is high voter turnout, and in cities like Madison, LaCrosse and Milwaukee, turnout is indeed huge.

Supporters of Scott Walker are responding with tactics that are clogging up phone lines at Tom Barrett's campaign headquarters:
The campaign headquarters of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was inundated Tuesday with outraged callers who received an anonymous text message accusing Barrett of being a "union puppet."

The message, which came from, said this:

"Tom Barrett is a Union Puppet who will give Union Thugs everything they want. Call & ask why 414.271.8050."

That is the phone number for the main campaign office for Barrett, a Democrat running against Gov. Scott Walker in the June 5 recall election. For a short period Tuesday afternoon, the Barrett campaign number appeared to be out of service from the flood of calls.
It's sadly typical that Republicans are trying to mess with Democratic efforts to get out the vote, but it also shows they know high turnout means trouble for Scott Walker.

Please contribute $3 to Tom Barrett to make sure every Wisconsin Democrat can vote to recall Scott Walker.

Keep fighting,
