How much wore can the situation in Wisconsin get for the democrat party? This much worse
You have public-employee unions that force public-sector employees to pay dues and make the state act as their bagman. The state refuses to collect dues and changes the law to make dues and union membership entirely voluntary. What do people do?
That’s easy … they quit paying the dues:

Crowd for Clinton-Barrett rally in Milwaukee 10 minutes before scheduled start: 400 people? …
..ALSO: Where’s the live-stream? Barrett’s own Twitter feed, an hour ago, said “Huge crowd ready to rally as shown by this photo submitted by a supporter,” and within minutes, there were 2 responses, asking for directions to a live stream. Nearly and hour later, and with Clinton close to going on, there’s no answer. I found an indication of a live feed at WAOW.com, but clicking on the link doesn’t work for me. What’s irritating is: I keep clicking and getting the same commercial and then it goes dead. It’s a public service ad featuring a low-flow showerhead. Low-flow. I want streaming, and I’m getting no-flow.
and this much worse:
A lone Scott Walker supporter was arrested at a campaign rally for Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett today, where Bill Clinton also spoke. The man had been arguing with rally attendees since before the rally began, and held a sign that said “Support Scott Walker, Not Union Thugs.”
After the end of Clinton’s speech, the man was taken away by police and taken to the corner of Pere Marquette Park in downtown Milwaukee as the police waited for their car to arrive.
The arrest was the latest in a long series of incidents in a race marked by intense, personal bitterness on both sides.
“I have no idea why I’m being handcuffed,” he told the gaggle of reporters who had followed him. “They won’t tell anybody what I did wrong. What rally specifically do I get to peacefully protest?”
A crowd of Barrett supporters formed around the Walker supporter, yelling “Why agitate the people?” and “Bye-bye!” as he was led into a police car.
A police officer on the scene would not say why the man had been arrested.
Would not say why the man had been arrested? cripes is Judge C.J. Vaughey of Maryland moonlighting in Milwaukee?
Ann Althouse comments:
Quite aside from the free speech rights, it’s stupid to arrest someone in this situation. Now, he’s the story, instead of Clinton rallying for Barrett. And the police are the story. The Milwaukee police. The Madison police didn’t treat protesters/counter-protesters this way. And you know something about Milwaukee? Its mayor is Tom Barrett.
Well it could be worse, they could have Biden there complementing Jon Corzine
and it isn’t looking good in Brooklin either
This election is going to be so much fun.
