Eagle River Wisconsin -- Kim Simac, the Tea Party candidate challenging Democratic Senator Jim Holperin for 12th District Senate seat in the upcoming recall election needs to get her house in order and leave OUR HOUSE alone. Beyond her previously reported “quirky” view on family values, we have now uncovered an apparent connection between Ms. Simac (formerly Kimberly Jo Perreau of Wilmette, IL) and sibling, Richard Perreau. We have obtained a screen print of Ms. Simac’s previous website in which she displays a photo of her brother in a wheelchair in a northern Wisconsin assisted-living facility. On the webpage, Ms. Simac claims to have Power-of-Attorney (POA) for her brother. Is this the same Richard Perreau of Rolling Meadows and Des Plaines, Illinois, who plead GUILTY to stealing $20,000 from the Boy Scouts?
Richard Perreau originally pleaded “Not Guilty” to the accusation that he stole $30,000 (yep, $30,000, not $20,000) from the troop. He claimed that he was simply reimbursing himself for out-of-pocket expenses (see Chicagotribune,com story). Not only did Perreau admit taking $20,000 from the Boy Scouts, he made use of public defender services by claiming he had no assets and made only $125/week while paying $400/month in rent (see http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-69053724.html).) So Richard Perreau used the very same type of “public services” for the poor and indigent that GOP senators and Ms. Simac now rail against in their political speeches.
Kim Simac who is challenging Jim Holperin for leaving the Senate floor, vacating the Wisconsin State Capitol, and for fleeing to Illinois in order to uphold Democracy in the state of Wisconsin.
This is not the only information we have learned that while Ms. Simac certainly” talks” the Tea Party talk, she has difficulty with the Tea Party walk. Recently we discovered that GOP candidate Kim Simac and her current spouse arrived at the court house the very same day to file for divorce from their previous spouses. Politiscoop.com later found that the two couples then swapped and married each others spouses. When questioned by the Milwaukee Journal, Ms. Simac said her spouse swapping was “just one of those quirky American stories” (see Jsonline.com ). We’re sorry, but spouse swapping is NOT one of those quirky American stories that sit well with Wisconsin moms and dads. Ms. Simac’s marital misbehavior's certainly don’t reflect the Middle- American family values that Wisconsinites hold so dear.
Simac’s reasons for petitioning for a recall against Jim Holperin, a member of the heroic Fab 14, is her claim that he abandoned his “values” when he legally removed his vote from the senate floor in order to give Wisconsin citizens time and a voice to look into what was buried by the GOP in the budget. How can Ms. Simac abandon her spouse and a traditional marriage, and then flippantly claim on her website: “I believe in the preservation of the family and traditional family values, and will always support legislation to protect them. To be strong, Wisconsin needs to support the traditional family structure and work to encourage marriage as the route to a stable and successful future.”? Can we expect Ms. Simac to propose tax breaks for two couples who swap spouses and throw 9 kids into turmoil, at taxpayer-funded expense?
