Well apparently they pulled it off, despite some sub-bridge grade duct tape and challenging wind conditions, not to mention 90+ degree heat.
We sent Progressive Pete to report on the protest, but apparently the heat side-tracked him at a local watering hole, where he forgot his camera. So we once again had to rely on a photograph supplied by Citizen Pete, one of the organizers of the event.
As Citizen Pete noted, "The courage of Governor Walker, Lt. Gov. Kleefisch, and Tea Party groups in Wisconsin, to resist the power of government sector unions and stand firm, along with the majority of Wisconsin voters who supported them, was truly inspiring."
Pete continued, "I would be remiss if I did not also thank our county officials who approved spending over $3 million to build this otherwise useless pedestrian bridge, just so we could post messages. In fact, that gives me another reason to thank the folks in Wisconsin, after all, they helped pay for our Tea Party billboard."
Citizen Pete then shared this quote.
