Wisconsin Gas Station Menaced for Selling to Republicans

Posted by Dave Blount at April 22, 2011 7:52 AM

At least one good thing has come of the months-long tantrum Wisconsin public school teachers continue to throw in response to the throttling down of their gravy train: it has exposed the thuggery rampant among leftists entrusted with our children. Things have gotten so bad that gas stations are getting intimidating phone calls for allegedly allowing Republican pols to fill up.

State Sen. Joe Leibham has filed an open records request with the Sheboygan Area School District for details about an ominous phone call received Tuesday by Dick Hiers Northeast Standard. Leibham believes the caller, who told a station clerk it was a bad idea for the station to do business with the senator, made the call from a phone registered to the school district.
The request, which went to School Board President David Gallianetti on Thursday morning, asks for confirmation that the number is an SASD number, for the name and job title of the person who made the call and whether monitoring the private activities of elected officials is in the job description of district employees. …
The 8:15 a.m. call was recorded on the business's answering machine, which was still switched on from the night before, according to Hiers.
The female caller, who asked the clerk to confirm that Leibham was there and then asked if the business supports Leibham, wrapped up her comments with "You can tell Dick he's not good for business, I can tell you that," referring to Leibham.
Leibham said his concern is whether a school employee on school time would make statements like that from a school phone.

Here's another cause for concern: Leibham is among the Republican state senators who has received death threats for voting to limit collective bargaining for public sector workers.

Teachers union thuggery recorded for posterity.
