Permit application asks for Capitol singing "until notice"


MADISON (WKOW) -- A Madison man has submitted a permit application to stage singing rallies in the state capitol next month "until notice."

Tom Kasper of Madison identifies the event as "Kapital Singer" :

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Capitol police officials have granted only three September dates for Kasper, and regular, capitol participants in the weekday Sing-a-long have threatened to boycott Kasper's dates to reinforce their view permits should not be required to exercise free speech rights.

Online databases show Kasper signed a recall petition against Governor Walker. The weekday Solidarity Sing-a-long protests Walker's limits on public union collective bargaining and other policies.

Kasper has yet to return a call from 27 News seeking comment.

A federal judge ruled a permit can be required for rallies in the capitol of twenty or more people.
