Preparing for Escape Run #2?

Seems certain political activists find the strangest and most inappropriate ways to express their activism. What's your guess on the political motivation of the caller in the video below?

A Sheboygan gas station owner is baffled after a mystery caller tells a clerk it's a bad idea to do business with a Sheboygan-area state senator.

It started Tuesday when a woman called Dick Hiers's Northeast Standard gas station after she thought she saw Senator Joe Leibham there. Her call was caught on the answering machine.

"I think that this whole thing has to end. It has to stop," said Hiers. "This type of stuff is totally uncalled for."

Hiers never thought his little gas station in the heart of Sheboygan would be the stage of political controversy. Then again, his week has been full of surprises.

"I was working back here and the answering machine went off, and I was a little surprised by that, and when I heard the message here, I was even a little more surprised."

The answering machine here in the back of the store was left on from the night before and was recording the entire conversation.

Caller: "Can you verify that was Senator Leibham at the gas station this morning?"

Gas station clerk: "Senator Leibham?"

Caller: "Yes. Do you guys support him?"

Clerk: "I have nothing to say about that, I am not politically involved."

  1. Well, this lady has a dopey way of making her point, but Leibham is no firecracker - he's an M80.

    His far right positions, at this time in WI history, put him at an angry pole. Not only that, but when he first was elected his positions on labor and most social issues were relatively moderate. He has steadily moved to the very far, fringe Right over the last decade. (He's young too, so one could imagine just how far right this guy will one day be! LOL!)

    His politics of convenience are off-putting at best. He refused the PVS "Courage Test" too, so you can see he's a sleazebag, which will make the angry opposition only more angry.

    With all that said, what the woman did was very wrong at the least, if not illegal.
