J.B.Van Hollen Supports The Arts

Not really. But he refused to criticize Pro-Life Wisconsin's celebration of the murder of a women's health doctor & his bodyguard. Of course, Van Hollen was endorsed & received the largest contribution the Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund made in 2006. See previous link.
Last week, in gruesome irony, “pro-life” activists held an event in Milwaukee celebrating the murder of Dr. John Britton and his bodyguard, James Barrett, by anti-abortion stalker Paul Hill.

According to media reports, the “highlight” of the event was “the re-enactment of Hill’s murders,” culminating in a chorus of “Hallelujah” after the man playing Hill pulled his shotgun’s trigger.
More on this bullshit here. The question is, of course, will J.B. Van Hollen repudiate what an organization who endorsed & financially supported him is doing? I'll never hold my breath for a ReThug to do the right thing. He really ought to return the contribution, after all, he apparently doesn't need it since he donated over $700,000 of his own money to his campaign. Maybe the Ashland County, WI, D.A. Sean Duffy could make this suggestion to his fellow traveler. It would be a wonderful gesture, even more, it would be the correct thing to do. After all, it is one thing to be pro-life (I mean, who isn't?), but it's a whole other thing to be pro-murder.
