"You're a Marked Man, Kyle Wood:" Candidate's Husband Sent Insulting, Threatening, and Racist (!!!) Texts to Beaten Wisconsin Political Staffer Before Attack
Beating Claims Recanted; Texts Looking Fake

Withdrawn Due to Recanting: See the update. Woods has recanted claims of a beating to police, which means, I'm guessing, it didn't happen, so the texts are looking likely fake.


The details of the stating situation are a bit unconventional:

Chad Lee is a Republican running for the open seat in Wisconsin's second congressional district. Kyle Wood is a full-time volunteer working for his election. Kyle is openly gay and was targeted in what appears to be a politically motivated attack last week. Mark Pocan is the Democrat who is running for the open seat. Pocan is gay and campaigns with his husband Philip Frank.

A text just before the attack tells Woods (the victim) he's a "marked man:"

Today it emerged that Mr. Frank allegedly sent a series of crude text messages to Kyle Wood prior to the attack, one of which reads, "From here on out youíre a marked man Kyle Wood, and you have no one to blame but yourself."

Here are some of the threatening/crude/racist texts the Democratic candidate's husband sent:

PF (Pocan's husband): You know you could just concede defeat and take the weekend off working out your frustrations in a fun way. You, me, some Iron Horse, a little gun oil and a couple knots I learned in boy scouts. 9:14 AM

KW [Beating Victim]: Phil, just stop. 9:15 AM

PF: Donít pretend you dont want a piece of this ass. Its alot more fun than working yourself to death for a hopeless cause that will make you even less likeable. 9:17 AM

PF: Just take the day off of this totally unwinnable race and lets mess around. 9:20 AM

He means have sex. Classy.


PF: Fuck you Kyle. Remember your station in life and remember not to cross the husband of a powerful man. You are on shaky footing as it is, push much farther and you wonít have a future in this town, or any other. Youíll go back to pig farming where you belong. 10:28 AM

Chad Lee (the Republican candidate) has a Mexican-American wife. Philip Frank decides to trade in some crude Mexican-bashing:

PF: Shopping around for TV time, are we? Did Chad finally pull an Indecent Proposal with that tight little wetback of his for a quick buck? 5:07 PM

PF: Or did that big amazon bitch with the hair blow someone higher upÖ Paul Ryan maybe? He has some cash. Whats the secret. 5:12 PM

PF: We were brainstorming for you here at our office last night trying to help you guys out just to make this race interesting. And we were thinking since you canít afford useful tv time, maybe his ugly chola hooker wife has some illegal friends that could stand on corners and wave signs like Little Caesars. 10:29 AM

No media coverage, of course.
