MADISON — There are some scary, nasty liberals in the Wisconsin Legislature. But this week’s Tool is a real “ghoul.”
Last week, as Republican state Sen. Andre Jacque reportedly was clinging to life in a hospital with COVID-19, his colleague, Sen. Kelda Roys (D-Madison), looked to fundraise over his grave.
Roys joined a chorus of unrighteously indignant Democrats and their public-relations firm in corporate media to bash Jacque for being an outspoken critic of mask and COVID vaccine mandates. They insisted that the liberty-defending senator was sure to kill scores of people who attended a legislative hearing at which Jacque testified — sans mask — before testing positive for COVID.
“So predictable. Selfish, irresponsible, dangerous behavior like THIS is why I fear for my kids when they return to school. We need to require vaccination verification for in person work and school, and universal masking until everyone’s had a chance to be vaccinated,” Roys predictably and hysterically wrote in a response to a tweet critical of Jacque.

Roys, one of the farthest left of the Madison Democrats, then tweeted a link to the State Senate Democratic Committee encouraging campaign donations to defeat Jacque.
“Just gonna drop this here, so we can have a nice bundle for whoever runs against him,” she wrote.
She got some love from her fellow lefties. Conservatives and people with more decency than a Cuisinart food processor blasted Roys for trying to politically profit on tragedy.
Former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, presumptive Republican candidate for governor. called Roys’ tweet “pure evil.” Kleefisch said Roys should resign.
One commenter described Roys as a “ghoul.” Another took aim at the lawmaker’s lack of civility.
“Even though you don’t like the man, he has a wife and children. He is apparently not doing well. If you are a good person, you’ll delete this until he’s on the mend.”
She didn’t. She did offer a half-assed apology after Jacque’s brother asked her to do so for her “poorly timed, super tacky, and unhelpful (to anyone) fundraising tweet.”
“Hi Pierre, I am really sorry that your brother is in the hospital and that you and your family are going through this. You, like so many Americans, are watching a family member suffer from a disease we should have been able to conquer by now — it’s agonizing,” she wrote to the senators brother.
Also agonizing is watching the vultures in the hysteria porn peddling left rooting for the demise of those who choose not to get a COVID shot or wear a mask. So much for “co-exist.”
There are a lot of tools on the left, but Kelda “the ghoul” Roys is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
