Stripper a No Show in La Crosse
La Crosse police say they've got a thieving stripper at large. They say the 25 year-old woman was contacted by a fellow putting together a bachelor party for his friend. She goes by Randi or Lacey Daily. The guys found her online and she was advertising "sugar and spice and everything nice." But when Randi showed for the party she collected her hundred dollar fee and left in the same taxi she came in. No sugar, no spice and no stripping. When they find Randi, they'll get her for theft and probably for breaking the new city rule requiring an escort license. That's a 13 hundred dollar fine.
Kleefisch: You Can't Recall Me Twice
Just three more weeks of recall season in Wisconsin, and one candidate will be happy to see it end.
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will be happy especially if she prevails in the June 5th recall. Kleefisch tells WIZM's La Crosse Talk that if she and Governor Walker keep their jobs in the recall election, they'll be immune to further recall attempts for the next two-and-a-half years. Kleefisch believes it's 'frustrating' for voters to be asked to take part in as many recall elections and special races as Wisconsin has seen in the last two years.
Wanted Man in La Crosse Continues Crime Spree
Frederick Lomprey IV isn't doing anything to further endear himself to La Crosse police. Cops last week sent out notice that Lomprey is a wanted man, looking for help from the public to find him. Lomprey appears to be on the run and in need of money. In the last several days he's broken into the houses of old friends, stealing some of their electronics, presumably to pawn for cash. The 27 year-old Lomprey was wanted for several other crimes prior to the recent thefts and appears to be still in the area.
