WI Dems slapped with felony charges

Remember that story on Election Day about the tires of 25 vehicle rented by the Republican Party of Wisconsin being slashed? Well if you didn’t hear about it, it’s because the press all but ignore the story. The WI Republicans rented the vehicles for their get-out-the-vote efforts. But their efforts were ultimately in vain, being that all the vehicles were rendered useless by politically motivated saboteurs.

So whats foul group of individuals would carry out such a nasty trick? None other than the "make every vote count" screaming liberal Democrat whack jobs. WisPolitics reports:

Republican Party of Wisconsin (RPW) Chairman Rick Graber issued the following statement today after Milwaukee County District Attorney E. Michael McCann filed felony charges against five Democrat Party employees who slashed tires on 25 vehicles rented by RPW for get out the vote activities in last November’s elections. Those charged include the sons of U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and former Milwaukee Mayor Marvin Pratt.

“Make no mistake, this was an act of political sabotage - a coordinated effort by paid Democrat workers to disrupt the political process and prevent Republicans from getting to the polls. It is especially interesting to note that, according to the criminal complaint, those charged made detailed plans to vandalize Republican headquarters and even gave their project a name – ‘Operation Elephant Takeover.’

So where is the avalanche of stories from the New York Times, Washington Post, and AP documenting the disenfranchizement of Republican voters? Will Jesse Jackson be beating a path to the offices of the Wisconsin Democratic Party to hold series of sit-ins and press conferences? Are the hack "journalists" over at MSNBC and CBS News going to dedicate 23 hours of their daily news coverage to discuss this crime against democracy carried out by the Democratic party?

Of course not.

Stories like this only get attention these days thanks to bloggers and other alternative forms of media. I can only imagine the scandal that would sweep Republican ranks if this were carried out by any of their party officials.
