Making It Nationally

First it was Jill Bader and her racist retweet that brought the Walker Campaign unwanted national attention.

Now, it's his lack of awareness that the boxing glove thingie might backfire.
A complication in the imagery of this ad: Back in August 2009, Barrett was
severely beaten by a man with a tire iron at the Wisconsin State Fair. Barrett
intervened to protect a woman who was trying to protect her 1-year-old
granddaughter from the girl's drunk father, who in turn then attacked Barrett.
Barrett was hospitalized and has undergone multiple operations on his hand,
which doctors say might never fully recover. The assailant was later sentenced
to 12 years in prison.

Oh yeah, you can add your voice to the call to force Walker to retract his slurs.
