So much for that new tone in politics…

Dem Rep. Gordon Hintz and Republican Representative Michelle Litjens

This is truely outrageous. I have to say it, this man should be charged and investigated.
Really, someone please explain to me how he can get away with this?

Last Friday…. after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are [[[snip]]]!” DEAD

So it looks like this Hintz is a huge crook and loser, gets busted visiting a slut parlor, and is
angry about it, and makes a death threat to a female Rep in front of other people, and is not in jail???

Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, called Rep. Michelle Litjens, R-Winneconne, Monday morning to apologize for his comments that Litjens described as containing an obscenity and the words "you're dead." Last week, he accepted responsibility for being issued an ordinance violation for visiting a massage parlor in Appleton that was the subject of a prostitution sting.

Last week, we heard thatState Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) had been busted in a prostitution sting.

State Rep. Gordon Hintz was issued a municipal citation in Appleton earlier this month for violating a city sexual misconduct ordinance.

Appleton police said the citation was issued Feb. 10 in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor.

Am I giving it too much lee-way to presume he meant "dead politically" ... ?

It doesn't matter either way... Fool.

Someone tell me how this loser still gets enough votes to stay in office?

They should tar and feather him.
Teach him a lesson in humility.

If that was my mother, or any family or friend that he threatened, I'd catch a plane over there to see if he'd yell the same words to MY face. We'll see who's tough. Tough guys always talk down to women.

Truly disgusting.

He should at the very least be fired.

any one else would have said that well the would be in a heck of a lot
hot water to put it mildly, but this just makes me sick just because A) he is a Dem or B) he is a Rep of the house no one should be above the law, when that day comes we deserve no law no rights no freedoms, for then we will be a dictatorship.

If a Republican said this it would be all over The View, Daily Show, CNN/MSNBC/CBS/PBS/etc would be demanding he resign today. But since it's a Dem the story will get 5 minutes and they probably won't even mention he's a Democrat.

Yeah, its really hard to say, but given that hes one to frequent prostitutes I would not be
willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, if you follow.

So,.....are we supposed to put on our party's hat and condem one or the other?
Seems like another distraction to me.
I could care less if all of our elected officials wiped each other out.
Strike that, i see no prob in them wiping each other out, other than the inevitable collateral damage elected officials always seem to make happen.

Thats not the point, the parties are irrelevant.
Its the fact that he threatened her with obcsenity, and said "You are (bleeping) DEAD"

YES, that is exactly the point, there can be no other way.
If this guy did something illegal he will be tried and there is a slim chance he will be prosecuted.
If said individual did something big and bad in the public eye, things will work out one way or another.
So why are we putting on our party hats?
Dem or Rep, they are both criminals.

You cant paint it any way you want...your deflecting.

The point is...Representative Hintz made a death threat, and swore profanity at a fellow Rep.

The fact that the creep is a Democrat is besides the point.

Why is everyone getting upset over someone saying "bleeping" or "snip" when he could have said *^%$#**

I am painting nor deflecting nothing.
If someone did something "illegal" in the public eye, they will be confronted by authorities and steps will be taken.
If nothing done was illegal then this is all wasted text.
I do not care if a politician wants to "Whack" all of the other politicians.
Simple enough?
There is no sense in us getting fired up over our favorite wrestling star as after the show is over they all drink together in the lounge, and count their earnings.

No its not ok to make death threats, espeically if your a politician.
Why would you want to turn a blind eye to this, or excuse it???

I agree a death threat can be something to take seriously, esecially if it is a politician, as they are famous for carrying through with said things.
The person in question did make this threat in public view?
I will assume yes as he was looking to apologize for it.
Now that we know he has "Broken the law" he WILL be prosecuted, if not we will all know this was a distraction, or some sensationalizing.
This is why i will turn a "Blind eye" as it is documented and something "Must" be done.

I do not come to the same conclusions as you. Not at all.
He has already been arrested for breaking the law, by frequenting a prostitute.

He was "reprimanded". Then, he makes a death theat in public.

He will apologize, and get away with this outrageous behavior.

Hookers and killing are worlds apart.
If an apology is enough, then it must have not been illegal.
If what he did was illegal and he is not prosecuted, then it will be to his Constituents to judge him.
Can we agree on that?

An apology is enough?
Who says?

I dont agree with that thought at all.
Especially after the Arizona Shootings, and the fallout from it.

In my opinion, this man should be made to leave his political position.
He is a lawbreaker, and should not be a lawmaker.

Agreed an apology is not nearly enough.
But what makes you think anything short of voter intervention will fix this problem?
Politicians are quite slippery and these little wars have a way of being covered up.
The major and only problem i see is by the time a vote comes around for this jerk to be voted out, We the people " for the most part will have forgotten about said cover up.
They always forget.
Hell most Americans think on 911 a federal building was blown up by 2 rednecks and a truck of chicken poo.
