Gordon Hintz Running to Lead State Assembly Democrats

Heh. Seems appropriate.

The 43-year-old sits on the Joint Finance Committee and has been a key Assembly Dem voice on the budget and other issues. But he also faced a difficult re-election in 2014 as Republicans targeted him over a 2011 citation at a massage parlor that was later shut down for prostitution.

Hitnz’s announcement comes the day after Barca, D-Kenosha, announced he would resign at month’s end.

The state GOP immediately hit Hintz over the 2011 citation as well as yelling, “You’re (expletive) dead!” at then-GOP Rep. Michelle Litjens during the floor debate on Act 10.
