Brookfield - On Saturday, a woman from Brookfield received a municipal citation for disorderly conduct after she hit a Recall Scott Walker volunteer at the 16000 block of W. Bluemond Road. The woman was identified by Brookfield police as Linda M. Lorino, 47.
The police report states, Lorino stopped just after 1:30 p.m. to talk to a pro-Walker supporter and then proceeded to talk to a recall Walker volunteer gathering signatures. When she noticed, Steve Nagel, another volunteer videotaping her. She walked back to her vehicle and grabbed her cell phone and began to also videotape Nagel.
Lorino became angry, yelled and apparently hit Nagel while she confronted him. Nagel lost his balance, but was able to tape the entire incident, which made it easier for police to cite her. Nagle told police, that he anticipated trouble from Lorino and began to videotape her actions.
Lorino faces a fine of $492.00 for the citation and incident.
Both recall Walker organizers and volunteers have collected more than 700,000 petition signatures, since Saturday, according to a Monday report by Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA). HNNUSA cited close sources in the Recall Scott Walker (R) effort that the statewide campaign has surpassed the 700,000 signature total.
Organizers could very well break another record by the January 17, dateline, when organizers will officially announce the grand total of signatures collected throughout Wisconsin.
