Just more of the same cruel and insensitive stuff from the mind trust on the right. The Republican Party can apologize all the want, but when does it get to be too frequent and too much of a bad thing?
GB Gazette: Brown County’s Republican Party is distancing itself from County Board candidate Jason Wisneski after statements he made about Democratic state Sen. Dave Hansen, whose granddaughter was killed in a 2007 accident. Chairman Mark Becker issued a statement Wednesday calling for Wisneski to resign from the Republican Party of Brown County. “This action is being taken because of recent comments made by Mr. Wisneski referring to State Senator Dave Hansen as a ‘murderer’ regarding the tragic death of his grandchild,” read the email that accompanied the statement issued by Becker.
Wisneski made the statements on the Press-Gazette Media website after the news organization reported on his 2008 conviction on a charge of mistreating an animal.
“It’s funny how they never bring up Dave Hansen murdering his grandchild though,” Wisneski wrote in his post, which was later removed. “Hanson is a murderer but because of who he is and his money he got away with it. Yet liberals forgive the child killer. Can you say hypocrisy?” Wisneski’s wife, Monica Podgurski-Wisneski, posted.In 2007, Hansen accidentally struck and killed his 23-month-old granddaughter while backing out of the driveway of his Green Bay home. She died instantly of her injuries.
