Democrat vents about State of the State on Facebook

  • 0

One Democratic lawmaker was so unimpressed with Gov. Scott Walker's State of the State address Wednesday that she used a profanity in a Facebook post to vent her frustration.

"OMG...this speech is so full of (expletive)," Rep. Christine Sinicki, D-Milwaukee wrote on Facebook. "Wish I could get up and walk out."

Several of Sinicki's Facebook friends voiced their support. But Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, called on her to personally apologize to Walker and her constituents.

"What a disappointment. She should be embarrassed," Vos said. "I can't even believe that. That frustrates me. She should definitely apologize to her constituents. They sent her here to do a job, not have a tantrum."

"I have every right to say what I feel. I would never actually walk out during a speech," Sinicki said. "I was simply expressing my frustration with Governor Walker's misinformation."

She also mentioned that state Rep. Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, walked out during last year's State of the Tribes speech.

When Democrats were asked about Sinicki's comments during a news conference after Walker's speech, Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, D-Kenosha, said, "We prefer to take substantive questions."
