Kapanke Says Threats are Concern, Will Continue Public Outreach
The threats talk about slitting his throat, drinking his blood, putting his head on a spike in Madison. State senator Dan Kapanke has received those threats and more since his vote on Wednesday for a bill that would strip most collective bargaining rights from most public employees in the state. Kapanke says he's bothered by the threats and very worried about his family but refuses to allow the threats to keep him from reaching out to all the people in his district regardless of their views on how he voted on that bill or any other. Kapanke also says he has been cautioned by police but appears to have no additional security at this point. The republican is one of many senators to get death threats.
