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.

    Sounds like the perfect candidate to represent the Democratic Party.  Surely the likes of Gwen Moore, Maxine Waters, et al will attend his election to such a prestigious position.  This is good for our Republican legislature as, despite their failures, will benefit from Mr. Hintz being the face of Democrats in Wisconsin.  Oh, oh.  Did I just commit a microagression?
