LETTER: GOP mailer crossed the line by using communist sign

To Ozaukee Press:

I received a mailer from the Republican Party of Wisconsin attacking Assembly candidate Liz Sumner with an illustration showing a hammer and sickle.

Are Democrats now being ratted out as communists? I thought for sure this was sent by a radical fringe group.

I looked up the definition of the hammer and sickle sign: “The symbol of the industrial worker and the peasant used as the emblem of the former Soviet Union and of international communism.”

I believe a line has been crossed.

Are there are any lines left?

I don’t know what can be done about it, but surely good Republicans find this revolting.
