Wisconsin state senator says son beaten as he confronted men removing Romney-Ryan signs from yard

A Wisconsin state senator says his adult son was attacked in the early-morning hours on Friday by two men after he confronted them as they removed a Romney-Ryan sign outside his home.

State Sen. Neal Kedzie says his son, Sean, was wrestled to the ground by the two and stuck repeatedly on the head and face. A neighbor heard the commotion and managed to scare the attackers, a press release from the state senator’s office said.

Sean Kedzie was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was treated for various bruises to his face, the statement said. Sean was released from the hospital the same day.

The Whitewater Police Department described the suspects as two white males, both about 6 feet tall. The incident is under investigation.
