Senator Kapanke's car window damaged


La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - A cracked windshield and threats of violence, leads State Senator Dan Kapanke to take precautions.

Kapanke says he's been under fire since he voted for Governor Walkers budget repair bill last Wednesday.

He says someone even vandalized his car.

Kapanke told News 19 that after the vote last week he couldn't get to his car in the capitol parking lot because protesters had surrounded it.

Capitol police had to move the car so Kapanke could leave and he noticed a crack in the windshield.

He says he didn't see anyone do the damage but because of all the threats, capitol police told him to use extra caution.

Kapanke said, "In light of what happened in Arizona with the congresswoman, you know your a little bite more caution and so we canceled a couple of meetings. I want to be out with the people, I will still do that. I just wont be quit as scheduled so people know in advanced where I'm going to be at at a certain time, I'm just going to go unscheduled if you will."

Kapanke says he hopes Democrats and Republicans can move past the budget repair bill battle and start work on the Governors two year budget proposal.
