A Democratic state representative whose reputation for bizarre antics includes being cited for flipping a child off an inner tube is trying to one-up a group of Wisconsin Republicans pushing a secession-related measure at their state convention.
Brett Hulsey, a Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor, is planning a string of stunts on the outskirts of the GOP convention, which starts Friday. He plans to hand out white Ku Klux Klan-style hoods at the event, to highlight what he claims are racist policies.
Plus he reportedly wants to hold a rally outside a Gov. Scott Walker speech with people dressed as Confederate soldiers.
Hulsey displayed his white hoods in the state Capitol press room on Thursday, saying he made them with his daughter’s sewing machine using curtain material he purchased for $1. “It’s a Wisconsin Republican Party hat,” Hulsey said. “And people can interpret it any way they want.”
Husley claims to be protesting a string of state Republican policies and votes. The hoods are meant to protest policies like one requiring photo ID to vote — though that law was just struck down in federal court on Tuesday — and one making it more difficult to force schools to remove American Indian mascots.
The gesture will surely send a loud & clear message if Hulsey does actually go through with it…but do you think he’s going too far?
