The Slow Career Suicide of Gordon Hintz Continues

Yeah, really not a smart move after the pros­ti­tu­tion charges.

Last Fri­day.… after the Assem­bly voted to engross the Bud­get Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female col­league, Rep. Michelle Lit­jens and said: “You are F***king dead!”

New Tone” folks.

I got to meet Michelle on Elec­tion night at the cel­e­bra­tion party we as the John­son Cam­paign were hav­ing at the EAA.  She is a really nice, intel­li­gent woman and small busi­ness owner who wants to get things done in Madi­son to con­trol the cost and growth of government.

She’s set to be inter­viewed this after­noon on 620WTMJ by their after­noon host John Mer­cure on “Wisconsin’s After­noon News” at 3 PM cen­tral time.

UPDATE: After this news went nation­ally viral, Hintz has apol­o­gized to Litjens.

Lit­jens said she accepted the apol­ogy, but has asked the Assem­bly lead­er­ship to dis­ci­pline Hintz.

Every­one was exhausted. We were on the floor 58 hours. (But) there is still no excuse for his com­ment,” Lit­jens said.

Lit­jens said she did not believe Hintz’ com­ments were meant for her per­son­ally. Rather, the com­ment was directed at the Repub­li­can Party as a whole for mov­ing ahead on the governor’s bill.

We should be able to civilly dis­cuss issues we are pas­sion­ate about with­out feel­ing threat­ened,” she said.

    If this is a slow career sui­cide, I’d hate to see what it’d look like if Gordo fast-tracked his death spiral.

    Put it in terms of local media. It’s the Oshkosh press after all, they’re
    not going to say any­thing bad against Hintz. They’re his press office after
