Italics reported in Former state Rep. Brett Hulsey registers to run for governor. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 8/6/2017)
Hulsey contemplated bringing a musket onto the Assembly floor to call attention to GOP policies, such as legalizing carrying concealed weapons, that he opposed. In 2013, one of his legislative staffers told police she feared for her safety because he brought a box-cutter to the office.
Hulsey is also known for incidents that occurred outside of the Capitol. He pleaded no contest in 2012 to a disorderly conduct citation after police accused him of flipping a boy off an inner tube and taking pictures of the child at a Madison beach.
