Julie Lassa’s Small-Ball Social Media

UPDATE #4 11:42 a.m.: Senate office says it’s her personal account. Working  on getting a statement now.

 


UPDATE #3: 11:35 a.m.: Evidently I called the wrong number. Trying again now.


UPDATE #2: 11:01 a.m.: Testin reports Portage County account has been blocked again. Not making this up.


UPDATE #1: 11:01 a.m.: Testin reports Portage County account has been unblocked.


I’ve been blocked on Twitter by Sen. Julie Lassa, who represents the Stevens Point area, ostensibly for this observation I made yesterday during her floor debate.

Portage County GOP Chair Patrick Testin also reports that the senator has blocked the county party’s twitter account.

No names were called, no slurs tossed; I made a counter argument, and she blocked me for it. This comes a day after co-boob Chris Larson and other Democrats spent more than 90 minutes bawling about Republicans not taking the time to hear everyone’s opinion.

Since I’ve been blocked, I might as well earn that distinction after the fact: Julie Lassa is a small-minded, non-talent, party-line-toeing hack whose toxic brand of liberalism is responsible for the fixes that Gov. Walker and legislative Republicans have been implementing these last four years.

Up your game, Jules. I understand weeding out the trolls to keep the discourse civil. But blocking someone who makes a counterargument, trying to silence the opposition, just after a debate about the importance of hearing everyone’s opinion? Who do you think you are, Idi Amin?

A request for comment from Lassa’s office went to voicemail. I will update with any new information.
