Wisconsin Senate Democrats, who fled the state to avoid voting on a new budget dealing with a $3.6 billion shortfall, have now claimed that they did not flee as reported by the media, but were abducted by aliens.
"It 's nonsense to say we were hiding when we were actually being held unwillingly in the belly of the mother ship," Democratic Sen. Jon Openbeek told reporters.
Openbeek says that he and his fellow Democrats were protesting outside the state house when a bright light appeared above them.
"The next thing we remember is being pulled up into the ship by some kind of beam. They kept us on the ship for several days, then brought us back to the state house."
Ironically, when the alien ship brought the Senators back to the state house, the ship was issued a traffic citation for being double-parked in a 'load and unload' zone. When the aliens went to pay the fine they found that the court- house had been shut down due to a labor union lockout imposed by Gov. Scott Walker.
Parking rates and fines have tripled since Jan. when the Republicans took over the government in Wisconsin. The aliens reportedly left in disgust stating they would not be back for several years to take care of the ticket. It is estimated that by the time the ET's get back it will cost a staggering $3.6 billion, including tax, to pay the fines from the citation.
A fund has been set up at a local bank to help the aliens in this matter. Donations can be made to the "SAVE OUR LOCAL ALIENS FUND" c/o Madeoff Bank Madison, Wisconsin
It is still unclear why the Democrats were taken in the first place. One unnamed Senator stated that the aliens" did things to them sexually" which included taking sperm and ovum samples.
"I think they wanted to clone us to make sure there are fewer Republicans available for future elections."
