Developing: Wisconsin Capitol building evacuated after ‘credible bomb threat’ (With LIVE Tweets)


MADISON, Wis., July 8 (UPI) — Wisconsin capitol police evacuated the capitol building Wednesday after officials said it received a “credible bomb threat.”

“Due to a credible bomb threat, we are evacuating the State Capitol,” the Wisconsin Department of Administration said in a statement.

State Rep. Tyler August told the legislature to leave the building around 3:45 p.m. local time while they were in the middle of debating the state budget, WKBT-TV in La Crosse, Wis., reported.

Everyone in the building was asked to walk across the street while police investigate.

The Wisconsin State Capitol may have been evacuated due to a bomb threat …

… but Wisconsinites aren’t about to let that ruin a beautiful summer day:

Because priorities, dammit!

Roll out the barrel, that is.

And Wisconsin state legislators take it very seriously.
