....Back in Wisconsin, the state attorney general's office last week released documents and audio recordings of some 70 threats against state officials.
Among the most outrageous was an e-mail allegedly from schoolteacher Katherine Windels, which read: "Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell."
She's been charged with two felony counts, including a bomb threat.
The controversial collective-bargaining law itself is in limbo, thanks to a restraining order issued in March by a judge in Dane County, where Madison is located. The ludicrous grounds: a claim that Republicans didn't give the public "proper notice" for a March 9 meeting that cleared the way for the bill's passage.
