The Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Thursday blasted Republicans over a television advertisement attacking Rep. Donna Seidel, a candidate in the upcoming recall election for the 29th State Senate District.
The ad by the Republican State Leadership Committee accused Seidel of having the wrong “recipe” for Wisconsin.
“Ads like this one, funded by out-of-state special interest groups, are sexist and embarrassing,” Zac Kramer, executive director for the State Senate Democratic Committee, said. “They should all be ashamed of their continued attacks on women. The ad continues the war on women that has been a popular talking point across the GOP platform.”
“It is clear that the Republican party believes that women only belong in the kitchen and this should be disconcerting to every citizen in the 29th Senate District.”
Seidel is running against Rep. Jerry Petrowski in the June 5 elections.
State Sen. Pam Galloway, the Republican who represented the 29th Senate District and faced a recall election, resigned from her seat in March.
Watch the ad, uploaded to YouTube on April 11, below:
Black family arrested for ‘loitering’ on their own front lawn
On October 1, a black family was standing in the front yard of their home, when police approached. They were arrested for loitering even though they were on their own property, reports KYW news.
Loitering offenses have historically been used as a way to purge people seen as undesirable, such as the homeless, from public spaces.
Now, the family is demanding answers from the Chester Township Police Department in Pennsylvania.
"It's a terrifying thing. It makes me feel as though the police can knock down your door, and drag you out of your home at anytime," Rachel Briggs told KYW. "This is an incident that made me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home," she added. Her sons and nephew were dragged off to jail, where they spent the night while the family scrambled to make their bail.
