Jim Steineke – who’s enduring well over a hundred thousand dollars worth of mud from the Greater Wisconsin Committee (GWC), screaming about a youthful hit-and-run on Steineke’s record. Steineke, Chairman of the Town of Vandenbroek and an Outagamie County Supervisor, is running to pick up Tom Nelson’s 5th Assembly District for the GOP. And he’s not having a very smooth run of it; the Dems and their minions aren’t going down without a fight.
Steineke and his wife Heather did a great video emphasizing Steineke’s character. Steineke has acknowledged the hit-and-run nearly 20 years ago as the serious result of youthful indiscretion and stupidity, and certainly not the deep character flaw GWC keeps trying to scream about. I’ll say it again – with the GWC, WEAC and their millions around, most any Republican candidate just has to expect these days that his face and malicious garbage will be magnified all over the airwaves.
A FoxPolitics reader wrote me last week that she “looked up his [Steineke’s] record with the state and found out all of the things [the GWC ads] say is true… I could understand the thing he did when he was younger, but just a few months ago picked up for unregistered vehicle and no insurance…”
I asked Steineke about these questions and he responded immediately.
Jo - I did receive a citation for an unregistered vehicle which was dismissed when I brought in proof of registration. The insurance citation was for not having my insurance card on me. We had recently switched insurance companies and bought a new car so the insurance card never made it into my new vehicle. It is similar to a seat belt violation in that it is a $10 fine. I do have valid insurance that dates back years and years with no interruptions.
Please feel free to share this info with your readers as well as my phone number if they have other questions.
It’s time the 5th Assembly District was in the hands of a fiscal conservative. Vote Steineke on Tuesday.

P.S.: Any guesses what Rep. Nelson might do when he’s out of a job in January?
It is extremely disappointing to hear all of the negative media regarding Jim Steineke's character in the 5th District Assembly race. Hopefully the public has taken the time to meet or hear Jim speak and they would realize that he will represent the 5th Assembly District well in Madison. Tuesday vote should put the best person in Madison to represent our District. Jim Steineke deserves our support!

I knew these allegations were, if not total lies, just on the cusp.
I can't even begin to understand the cesspools in the heads of those Democrats responsible for all of these "October Surprises." They're released late enough in the month that makes it difficult for the accused to get together a denial and have the news media report on it. This is as low as it goes.
I'm surprised no one else has responded to this article. Did it hit too close to home?
P.S. As soon as I saw the ad and saw all the hair on Jim Steineke's head I found his website and immediately donated some money to his campaign.
