Glenn Grothman: providing more work for maintenance staff.

On the Capitol: Signs of the times

In an email, lawmakers were reminded that a state Department of Administration manual says, "No signs, displays, banners or similar items shall be visible through exterior windows of the State Capitol Building."

Democrats suspected they were being targeted — probably because about 99 percent of the signs are hanging in their windows. But DOA spokeswoman Carla Vigue said one of the offending signs actually belongs to a Republican.

That's right: the "Vote Reagan for President" sign visible in the window of Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, inspired some to write inappropriate messages on his window using soap or soap pens — hardly permanent damage, but a pain for those cleaning the windows, Vigue said.

Having fun reading your blog. Ran across it while researching Grossman's school choice insanity.

I found this document and wondered if you have insight onto whether it is legit or not. It seems very suspicious to me and unlikely from his office. But lately it seems the whole world has been flipped and anything goes. Curious on your thoughts.

I'm afraid that looks right... it's typical Glenn. :^)

I know. It's like living in Bizzarro World.

I wrote on Grothman's windows! He was in there watching me while I did it. It was not soap, it was Crayola Water-soluble glass markers. I'm sure it cost a couple million to clean it off! ...and by the way, I'm 52 years old...

That's Glenn all right. He's been handing this flyer out for months. Glenn's quite the family man.

Not quite sure what he's after though... eliminating all these benefits to single women, or extending them to married women. I'm guessing both.
