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.

Since they walked out, their actions should have consequences. They should amend their process so that a quorum can be formed from present legislators and let the vote go through. I'm fed up with this crap...

Just heard on TV that Romney's down 32 points in Massachusetts. That oughta tell ya something! Like his claim to being able to work across the aisle with Democrats is another load of b.s.
