Frank Lasee announces his bid for the 8th CD (more or less)

This press release about the Iraq occupation by Rep. Frank 'a gun in every classroom' Lasee is a good indication that he is looking at running for the 8th Congressional District against Steve Kagen in 2008.

Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part...

UPDATE: Rep. Frank Lasee was spotted in the rotunda yesterday. He was on one knee in front of the veterans memorial with his hand on his chin and some photographer was furiously snapping shots at him. Yeah, that guy is up to something. Maybe he's working on a entry.

Lasee is a hothead and has more buttons to push than an accordian. Kagen should have fun pushing all of the ones he can keep track of.

Ensures Gard won't be back. Lasee would whoop him in a Primary.

The problems with Frank's ideas are that "self-determination of people" was never truly implemented as Wilson proposed after WWI - hence the nation of Iraq was created, and Bush is adamantly opposed to the Balkanization of Iraq into separate countries.

Lasee is more right than Gard and has less intelligence, figure that. Frank only does things for his own self gratification. However, check out this story about Frank not living up to his own family obligations.


Dear Reader --

Welcome to on this slow news week. In the spirit of the season [cue: "What child is this?" we take you to Brown County Circuit Court where Rep. Frank G. Lasee has been a regular presence before the family court commissioner in recent years, both for divorce, and for support of a child born to a woman other than his wife after the divorce. Lasee's big on traditional things like Christmas Trees, is against big government, and doesn't seem too crazy about education for the little ones. Imagine what he'd feel if he had to pay for public education per child.

Also, the Brewers Chick is back, after a delay due to my being away from my desk on the press of business and because of the holiday.

Let me hear from you,

Ordered to pay support to Brown County woman by same
Court Commissioner who presided over his lengthy divorce case

Rep. Frank G. Lasee, the Green Bay Republican who calls himself the “Father of Tabor” is also the father of a child born out of wedlock, according to a Brown County Court Case filed in June.

A stipulation and order of support was issued on June 23, 2005 by Brown County Family Court Commissioner Phoebe A. Mix, who also presided over Lasee’s earlier divorce.

Lasee’s busy homepage is filled with pious homilies – the father of Tabor and an illegitimate child staunchly believes in the Christmas Tree – not a “Holiday Tree.”

But he also thinks about the little children.

In a recent Lasee’s Notes he talks about the inadvisability of Kindergarten for 4-year olds:

Here’s dad’s thoughts:

“Nevertheless, the agenda is clear: statewide 4-year-old Kindergarten is on the education community’s agenda. In Wisconsin, the call isn’t for K4 only in those areas that could use it the most, or only for the students who need it most. No, Governor Doyle and WEAC, the teacher’s union, think every school district should have it.

“I wonder what current union members think about this. Adding a whole new grade statewide will put more pressure on finances, which WEAC tells us are already strained to the breaking point (what about the taxpayers’ strain?). That will mean less money to go around for raises and benefits (or will we just tax more?).

“All for a program that isn’t necessary statewide, and may not be necessary at all.”

Lasee filed for divorce in October 2001 from Kirsten F. Lasee. It was a contested divorce proceeding, during which time Frank “Completed ‘The Successful Divorce: Through the Eyes of the Child’ seminar,” on March 19, 2002. Lasee's Wisconsin Blue Book biography lists him as having two children -- from the marriage.

The case dragged on for some time, according to court records and included a division of Wisconsin Retirement System benefits on November 11, 2003, and a transfer of IRA assets. On January 11, 2005 the court ordered that the $500 per month spousal support be terminated as of September 1, 2004.

Lasee did not return numerous telephone and other communications to his office, district office and residence. Commissioner Mix likewise did not return a telephone call.
