After observing and objecting to the arrests of Solidarity Sing Along participants, daily Capitol protestors of Scott Walker’s bad governance, Crute joined and sang in an act of conscientious objection triggering his unconstitutional arrest on July 24, 2013.

“As a businessman on Main Street, we don’t ask if our customers and clients are Democratic or Republican, we do business as neighbors. It is time to end the dividing and conquering of Wisconsin.

We’re All Badgers, let’s start acting like it,” Crute says.
