Tom Reynolds, courtesy of the Greater Wisconsin PAC

Here is the text of a radio ad about State Sen. Tom Reynolds (R-West Allis) that began running this week. The ad was paid for by the Greater Wisconsin PAC.

How extreme is State Senator Tom Reynolds?

So extreme that Reynolds voted to make a promising form of stem cell research illegal in Wisconsin -- to stop research to find cures for diseases afflicting thousands of Wisconsin families.

So extreme that Reynolds not only fought against raising the minimum wage, but says there shouldn’t be any minimum wage at all.

Tom Reynolds wants to allow people to carry concealed weapons in their cars, on the street, in shopping malls, theaters, daycare centers and playgrounds.

He’s asked prospective employees about their sexual histories and religious beliefs. He refused to hire any female staffers, and even fired his entire legislative staff just days before Christmas.

No wonder The Journal Sentinel says Reynolds’ ‘”bizarre behavior” and “outlandish ideas” make him “a poor fit for public service.”

Reynolds is just too extreme.

Again you spread lies. On Jessica McBrides' column is the retort from one of Reynold's female staffers. All of those staffers female that worked on his campaigns are livid.
Who did he ask about their sex lives? Tom denies it and there isn't anyone that says he asked them.
Tom hired 4 people at the start of his term, the only 4 that applied. Les Wakefield, since fired for incompetence Les is 65. Steve Kreiser, married. Andre Jacque his campaign manager and another staffer who did not stay very long.
Why would he ask them about their sex life? No women applied.
The biggest support group for Tom is women making up more than 70% at the last fundraiser he had.
Do you have any sense of morals and deceny, just lie all of the time?

Reynolds currently has a woman on his staff; although intially he didn't.

My understanding is that early in his term it was the Senator's wife who said no to female staffers.

Having a female staffer now doesn't mean he was always willing to do so. As the JS reported: "Along with the very personal questions during job interviews - often conducted jointly with Reynolds and his wife around their plywood kitchen table - the office did not hire any women during his first couple of years in office, sources say, per the insistence of his wife."

Dohnal, why are you allowed to spread lies about Reynold's opponent, but when someone has a legitimate criticism of Reynolds you freak out?

Gosh, Gretchen...

Did you HAVE to resurrect the "plywood table".

Thanks alot for opening the door to another moronic Dohnal diatribe about the antique, quarter-sawn, solid oak, hand-finished, one-of-a-kind, heirloom, genuine, bonafide, Tom Reynolds kitchen tables.

Someone tell Dohnal that when he walks into the women's room and sees three women it is not called a fundraiser.

Perhaps he does this often, which may be why the female staffers are livid.

And if Tom hires everyone that applies, that may explain how Dohnal got his position.

Where's that lawsuit?
