It appears that one of the 14 fugitive Wisconsin Democrats has returned to the state capitol, heeding Governor Scott Walker’s ultimatum.
A flurry of Twitter messages late Tuesday night heralded the return of Democrat State Senator Tim Cullen, who represents labor union interests in the 15th Senate District surrounding Janesville, Wisconsin.
Cullen might have a little trouble getting into the Capitol. Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman was accosted by a screaming mob of union thugs outside the Capitol on Tuesday. The mob surrounded Grothman and howled profanities at him, until Representative Brett Hulsey of the Wisconsin State Assembly, a Democrat, came to his rescue in a union T-shirt and calmed the crowd. YouTube video of the incident can be seen here.
I don’t imagine the demonstrators will be pleased to see the first fleebagger break ranks and return to duty, without the permission of union bosses.
As of midnight Tuesday, Cullen’s thirteen Democrat colleagues remain hidden in undisclosed locations outside the states. Watch for updates if more information on Cullen’s status becomes available in the morning, or more of the fugitive Democrats return.

Running off to Illinois, the Dems in the Wisconsin state legislature were too cowardly to face a vote that they knew they would lose. Tremendous statesmen these cowards are! If they had a better idea why weren't they able to convince anyone of it? It's all a political ploy...
