On a national cable news interview, Republican congressman Sean Duffy (R-Wausau), called Madison a “communist community” while he said that election officials in Dane County are stalling the recount process to intentionally miss the Dec. 13 deadline.
Calls for Duffy to apologize have gone unanswered. Democratic Madison Rep. Mark Pocan demanded an apology. Both both men took to Twitter to continue the battle.
Duffy tweeted, “for those offended by ‘communist’ comment, I’ll send a therapy dog to your ‘safe place’ of choice in Madison.”
Duffy also tweeted at Sen. Baldwin and Rep. Pocan asking if they, “will accept results of election and denounce frivolous recount? #WisconsinOverPolitics”
