Brett Hulsey's Violent, Rambling Speech By Brian Sikma

A draft of a floor speech prepared by state Rep. Brett Hulsey (D-Madison) in January contained ominous musings about gun violence in the state Capitol, a police report shows. The speech draft emerged as part of a Capitol Police report on Rep. Brett Hulsey's allegedly odd behavior, which caused a female aide to say that she was "terrified" of her boss.
According to Capitol Police records, Hulsey walked into the Capitol earlier this year carrying a box cutter and acting a way that caused a Capitol Police officer to be concerned about the well being of those the lawmaker came into contact with.
In the speech draft, Hulsey references his own background with firearms and then makes references to gun violence that could have happened if he and others opposed to collective bargaining reform had been allowed to carry guns in the Capitol in 2011.
