Brett Hulsey, DEMOCRAT, member of the Wisconsin State Assembly and candidate for governor, is truly an embarrassment.
That's him in the Speedo, competing in a triathlon in 2013.
He's corrupt and creepy.
Here's Hulsey's latest disgusting stunt, from AP, via FOX News:
Democratic candidate for governor Brett Hulsey plans to hand out white Ku Klux Klan-style hoods to Wisconsin Republicans as they gather for their annual convention Friday to highlight what he says are their racist policies.To say Hulsey is a pervert and a creep and a weirdo is an insult to perverts, creeps, and weirdos.
Hulsey, a state representative from Madison who is white, came into the state Capitol press room on Thursday to show off a hood he says he made 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."
When asked whether he was serious, trying to be funny or provocative, Hulsey answered: "All of the above."
Hulsey, a two-term state representative, is running a long-shot campaign for the Democratic nomination against the better-funded and more broadly supported candidate Mary Burke. She is a former state commerce secretary and Trek Bicycle Corp. executive. Her campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki called Hulsey's latest stunt "completely unacceptable and totally inappropriate."
Hulsey has a history of outlandish behavior.
Hulsey contemplated bringing a musket onto the Assembly floor to call attention to GOP policies, like legalizing carrying concealed weapons, that he opposed. Last year, one of his legislative staffers told police she feared for her safety because he brought a box-cutter to the office.
In 2012, Hulsey pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct citation after police accused him of flipping a 9-year-old boy off an inner tube at a Madison beach and taking pictures of the child. Hulsey told police he just walked by the boy and didn't "touch or molest him." He also said he needed to point his camera toward the boy in order to get a shot of a sailboat and the sunset.
He calls his KKK hood creation a "Wisconsin Republican Party hat."
...Wisconsin Republican Party executive director Joe Fadness called Hulsey's plan to hand out the hoods a "reprehensible, vile stunt" that should outrage everyone.DEMOCRAT Hulsey brings shame to his party. He's not the only Dem to be an embarrassment.
Hulsey said he was trying to highlight what he called racist Republican policies to require photo identification at the polls, a law struck down in federal court on Tuesday as unconstitutional because of how it would affect minorities, passage of a law making it more difficult to force schools to remove American Indian mascots and cuts to public school funding.
"They need to own up to their racism, which is what I am trying to highlight," Hulsey said.
What does Mary Burke, fellow DEMOCRAT and fellow candidate for governor, have to say about her opponent Hulsey's KKK hood sewing projects and plans to distribute?
Her campaign spokesman did criticize Hulsey's stunt, but we don't hear her say much. For instance, Burke refuses to say she would repeal Act 10. Do Dems support Act 10 now? Apparently, Burke does. But I digress.
Back to Hulsey--
I wonder if Hulsey was inspired by Hank Aaron's recent comments about Republicans being like KKK members. Perhaps.
These Democrats are out of control.
They have truly disgraced themselves.
