Let me spell this out for the Democrats: this ad would probably doom Tom Barrett if he was ahead in the polls right now.
Narrator: This two year old spent six days in intensive care after being severely beaten. But Tom Barrett’s police department didn’t consider it a violent crime. Tom Barrett claims:
Tom Barrett: Violent crime is down 15.5 percent.
Narrator: But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that hundreds of beatings, stabbings, and child abuse cases were never even counted. Violent crime in Milwaukee is up, and Tom Barrett isn’t telling the truth.
As it stands, it’s just another nail in the coffin. In fact, it’s so much a nail in the coffin that I’m going to take this opportunity to remind people from Wisconsin: they shouldn’t just vote for Scott Walker in next Tuesday’s recall election. They should make sure that they vote for Rebecca Kleefisch for Lt Governor as well. Better safe than sorry.
