From WKOW in Madison, this report of a guy who took it upon himself to call signers of Walker recall petitions looking for an argument. He apparently took the names from a television story about the recall efforts.
This is hardly the worst thing that we have seen in Wisconsin over the past year. But it is still a stupid thing. Kevin Stoll,of Hartland, ought to direct his energies in a more positive way. Send letters to the media and post comments on the line. Organize on behalf of the Governor. But disturbing people in their home because they have publicly expressed disagreement is for losers.
I understand that there were organized campaigns to call and even to boycott supporters of the Governor and the recall of Democratic Senators. I know that there are times when decorum inevitably deteriorates in response to tactics on the other side.
But this is counterproductive and unfair. Although Mr. Stoll says that his calls were not hostile, he should just stop. Now.
We also see a report that of a Brookfield man who hollered at recall circulators and grabbed their video recording device. Also very stupid. Rude and uncivil.
