A resident who allowed organizers of the effort to recall Gov. Scott Walker to use his front yard to sign petitions, received a letter from someone threatening to vandalize his Wauwatosa home.
According to a Wauwatosa police report:
The resident of the 600 block of North 68th Street sat in his house - neighboring Walker's Tosa home - Nov. 15 while people set up a table and collected signatures in an effort to remove the governor from office.
The next day he received a letter addressed to "Walker Recall Help."
It read: "Dear resident, I have signed the petition to recall the governor. … I plan on delivering it to your home. It will be attached to a large rock, and it will be sent through your first-floor windows."
