The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Thugs are thugs are thugs

And Obama has cornered the market on the thug vote.

Sean Kedzie, after a run-in with thugs destroying Romney-Ryan signs.

Click here for the audio. Senator Kedzie has released a statement:

Early on Friday morning, October 19th, my son Sean was awakened by noises outside his residence in Whitewater. As he went to see what the commotion was about, he noticed an individual removing a Romney/Ryan yard sign from his property. He yelled to the person that they were taking something not theirs and to return it immediately. The individual returned the sign, however, a second person confronted and attacked Sean without warning.

Sean was wrestled to the ground by both persons, held down by a constricting chokehold, and struck repeatedly about the face and head. He nearly passed out from the chokehold and suffered contusions to his face and eyes. Fortunately, an alert neighbor heard the commotion, scared the individuals away, and called the police. My wife and I were awakened by a telephone call from Sean’s roommate that Sean had been taken by ambulance to Fort Atkinson Memorial Hospital.

Sean was treated for his injuries and released from the hospital the same day. As this was a private family matter, we chose not to remark publicly about it and allow law enforcement to do their job. But we understand these types of incidents will eventually become public and questions will arise, particularly in my position as a state legislator.

Sean is still recovering from the injuries he sustained as a result of this beating, and we are confident he will make a full recovery. But obviously, as parents, we are shaken by this event and very troubled it was apparently initiated and motivated for political reasons.

It’s too damn bad he wasn’t concealed carrying.

    Need to make sure the guy did create a video against Muslims before assuming his beating was unwarranted…

  2. Carrying concealed isn’t the answer. He should have stood on his porch carrying an AR-15 or similar firearm, and ordered them to leave.
