Just curious. Why does it cost so much to remove things 'taped' to the building?

Seems a bit overdone, no?

If items were taped to a painted wall (inside), you're likely gonna see paint come off with the tape. If thats the case, repainting the walls will be necessary. I'm sure this isn't a small building we're talking about either.

I will agree though, the estimate does seem excessive. I have not, however, seen the damage present.

Because the clean-up crews are state union workers.

Breitbart.tv Tea Partiers Clean-Up Mess Left By Union Protesters in Wisconsin

I bet my life on it last night in another post, this is exactly what would happen.

Glad my fellow Patriots in Wisconsin, didn't let us down.

As I clearly stated, I have not seen the building. I was simply going off what was being reported with the tape and all. That was the only damage I could see resulting from tape.

Maybe they think it has to be cleaned up by a union thug member who will demand 10x his/her value in pay.

Again kit does not matter how much it cost.


The FACTS are they destroyed Government property purposely.

Stop trying to defend them.

Are you saying it was right for them to use sharpies on those marble walls then?

Who is going to pay to fix this? The taxpayers of course.

I think they need to go back to some video and hunt down find those who actually did this, arrest them and make them pay for the cleanup.

Any way the loons twist this the CRIME WAS DONE and it does NOT MATTER how much it cost.
