GOP: Don't spit on the prosecutor
Placeholder Image
MADISON - Dodge County District Attorney Kurt Klomberg was delivering his closing argument in the prosecution of a man accused of spitting on prison guards when he heard a crumpling noise behind him. Moments later, a wad of paper hit his shoulder - filled with the inmate's saliva. Klomberg recalled the incident last year as a reason to support a GOP proposal that would make it a felony for anyone to throw or expel bodily fluids at prosecutors, punishable by up to 31â"2 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
