Busted! Wisconsin's AWOL Dem Senators Located

They can run, but they cannot hide.  A Wisconsin TV station has spilled the beans about where the "undisclosed location" really is.
The Badger 14 blog: After days of journalists meeting with the fugitive Wisconsin “Badger 14″ senators and disclosing only that they’re in an “undisclosed location” in Illinois, it appears that one press outlet has broken the embargo on their precise location.
Early this evening, Wausau’s WAOW reported on its website:  “The 14 Democratic Senators who fled the state are assumed to be just over the border in Harvard, Illinois.” 
That report appears corroborated by the remark Sen. Tim Carpenter made earlier in the day, when asked by an interviewer with Milwaukee’s TMJ4 where, exactly, in Illinois he was.  Sen. Carpenter said:  “Well, I can look out my window and see Wisconsin.  But not the Soviet Union — just Wisconsin.”  Read and listen here.  Indeed, it turns out that Harvard, Illinois, is on the northern border of Illinois (about 85 miles southeast of Madison), so that someone in a high-rise Harvard hotel could easily see Wisconsin out the window.  Google maphere.
From the information, Gateway Pundit places them here:
Heritage Inn and Suites – Harvard, Illinois1701 S Division St, Harvard, IL, 60033 United States
A quick Google search for images an this is what the place they are staying in looks like.

Nice pool, but is that a hot tub in the room?  Kinda No Tell Motel-ish, no?

Please excuse my ignorance but who pays the bills for these people?? I dare say they are room sharing so that means 14 rooms plus all the room service plus laundry service, etc. And what about the people's government? Isn't there some kind of 'law' they are breaking and face fines and prison time?? For some reason I just can't believe the government can be shut down by a bunch of rogue politicians.

I don't think Walker should ask them back. He should, instead, dismantle all these Dem's offices and fired all the staffs because their boss decided NOT to work while taking tax payer's pay check. Then let Wisconsin hold an emergency election and vote a new group of people who will go to work.

Rep and Conservatives have to understand, it's time to play tough. If a 12 year old is whining and crying after you gave them what they wanted, you don't buy more toys. You burn all his toys in front of him [and keep the ones you want for yourself], and will burn some more if he doesn't zip it or eat his veggies.

2nd Anony - who will burn his kids toys if they won't zip it.

Just saw the following info on Michelle Malkin:
WI State senators who miss two or more session days will no longer get paid through direct deposit. They’ll have to pick up their checks in person on the Senate floor during a session. This applies to expense account requests as well.

Good for them.

I certainly hope the people of Wisconsin are not paying for this BS. Most likely Organizing for America or one of the Unions are picking up the tab. That is what they do with the money they hijack from taxpayers.

Yep a little Tiger Mom action for those Dems! Republicans did vote to cut off direct deposit for the AWOL Dems. Next step should be docking their paychecks.

That is an excellent start, next dock their pay!
