In addition to the death threats noted in the previous post, there were harassing telephone calls (also reported) received to my home telephone number. Nothing was ever done – about any of it, to anyone involved.
On July 22nd, the following was posted on the recall forum (unedited):
We need to contact WI state Ethics Board, FBI.
“Hello, we need to contact the State of Wisconsin Ethics Board to investigate if [name deleted] or his campaign accepted monies from the National Council of Laraza, a racist anti-American organization or any other organization or groups connected to the Mexican Government. Also the FBI should be contacted to investigate if [name deleted] has been involved in the smuggling of illegal aliens into our community. His wife should also be investigated for illegal activities such loans and home loans to illegal aliens”.
I had no clue as to who posted it but again I was labeled as some kind of “racist”. Gee, think it could be her setting me up for another fall? Probably, but again, I couldn’t prove it so I deleted it due to its racist overtones and kept my lips zipped.
The recall site also had a guest book visitors could sign; this had been implemented since its inception. We had been getting a lot of positive and supportive comments; however, right around this time, in addition to the above post on the forum, was the following entry in the recall site’s guest book this same day (warning: foul language):

I did some quick IP look-ups and these were all done with the use of proxies – the very same proxies Medusa was so fond of using. Coincidence? I doubt it.
The Sheriff wasn’t taking the death threats seriously, anyway, so I certainly didn’t feel inclined to tell them about these nasty posts. To quote Capt. Dave Adams:
“While the notes could be interpreted as a threat, the Sheriff’s Department is not investigating them as a serious crime”.
Gee Sheriff, thanks… Reference the excerpt from an article below, which ran in The Sheboygan Press, July 29, 2006:
Now I knew where I stood.
