It all depends on what your definition of "Persuasion Partners" is, I guess

From the annals of Republican Family Values™ ...

One of the Koch-whores in Wisconsin, state Sen. Randy Hopper (R-Obvs.), has been busted as having been thrown out of his house by his wife, due to his habit of shacking up with a 25-year-old named Valerie Cass. Cass "was previously a state senate staffer who worked on the Senate Economic Development Committee alongside Mr. Hopper," and she now works for a right-wing lobbying outfit. Surprisingly, her page has been scrubbed from their site. However, screen grabs do exist!

In possibly related news, Hopper's maid has signed the petition seeking to recall him, and reports are that his wife will, too. (She may already have, but the site that broke this story is down at the moment, due to traffic load.)

Thump and Whip has some pictures of the dramatis personae.

I need a smoke.

I'm gonna hold out until his new girlfriend dumps him after he gets recalled.

Meme-o-randum attack! Yeehaw!

Try to push it back over the seawalls. Once it gets into the back-up generators, banner ads for Michelle Bachmann's 'American Revolution Poetry Slam' overrun the site. And, yes, I'm a Japanese nuclear scientist.

Whoa. I never saw my (blog's) name on Memeorandum before. Thanks for the heads-up.

(Even if that's not what you were talking about. Yes, it is good that this story is getting lots of play.)

But enough about everyone else. Let's talk about me! Look at 'em all!

You already are. It's just not enough people know about it yet.
