Activists: We were framed by Democrat operatives in tire-slashing case

MILWAUKEE — Five Democratic activists accused of slashing the tires of vans rented by Republicans on Election Day 2004 are now alleging that the Democratic Party set them up to take the fall.
Defense lawyers told jurors Tuesday that the five campaign workers were innocent and that their party’s “professional political operatives” actually damaged the tires and then pointed police in the direction of the defendants.

“Like troop movements in a war, these people came to Wisconsin as it became apparent that Wisconsin was in play,” attorney Robin Shellow said. “These are people who stepped over the line and now, because of what they do for a living, they blame our clients.”

Shellow, who is representing accused tire-slasher Sowande Omokunde, son of Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), said the operatives’ loathing of Republicans and President George W. Bush motivated the slashings.

I think this was just a renagade group of people - not a representation of the Democratic party (and I’m a Republican saying that!). It will be an interesting trial.

While it is by no means representative of all Democrats it definitely is representative of the people who control the party at this time. The George Soros/Moveon.org far left wackos. If you remember, that was far from an isolated incident. There were break-ins, vandalism, and even gunfire directed at Republican campaign headquarters and vehicles all over the country. There was regular valdalism of campaign signs. There was more election-related violence perpetrated by Democrat supporters in 2004 than in ALL previous elections I can remember put together, and I am in my 40’s.

True… I guess I should say I really hope it was a renegade group and not a directed effort.

I’ve lived in the area for almost 10 years – and for the record, I am a political independent.

The case against the individuals arrested is pretty darn close to ironclad. Voting fraud in Milwaukee has been going on for years, and it is not just on the Presidential level. Unfortunately, students where I teach have been involved in voting crimes in the past.

Regardless of what thinks about Democrats or Republicans or liberals or conservatives, what is going on in Milwaukee smells fishy – and there is no lobster stew in evidence!!! :slight_smile:

Blessings,
