But according to Simac's press release, if you want to contact the Simac campaign, you have to call the 216 area code that covers greater Cleveland, Ohio.
That's because the campaign contact, Samantha Osborne, has not established her Wisconsin residency, said Osborne this morning. Osborne is new to the district.
Osborne assured me she is living in the Northern woods area of Rhinelander, but she could not give me the Simac campaign headquarters' phone number.
Word is the Simac operation [with its warped family values hyposrisy] is half-baked, incoherent and not much of a threat to knock off the popular Democratic legislator, Holperin [Senate District 12], who has long ties to the area.
The recall signatures against Holperin were overwhelmingly gathered by a Colorado-based operation that goes to state to state, and pays its employees by the number of signatures gathered.
The Simac press release, delivered by e-mail, follows:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Samantha Osborne

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY BOARD CERTIFIES RECALL
ELECTION TO BE HELD ON JULY 19TH
RHINELANDER, Wisconsin-Kim Simac released the following statement today on the Government Accountability Board certifying recall petitions against Jim Holperin.
“The GAB ruling certifies not only the recalls petitions but the disappointment I’ve heard around the district over our current representation and the dirty politics going on in Madison. The people want real leadership. Real leaders get the job done and don’t run away when facing tough decisions.”
Jim Holperin is one of the 14 Senate Democrats that fled to Illinois during the debate on budget balancing measures. There were 19,255 valid recall signatures certified, the most against any Democratic Senator. Kim Simac announced her candidacy for the 12th Senate District on May 5th.
