(Newser) – Protesters who showed up at the home of a prominent GOP Wisconsin state senator got a little scoop from his wife: Not only was Randy Hopper not home, she said, he also doesn't live there anymore, and in fact doesn't live in his district—owing to the fact that he's shacked up in Madison with his 25-year-old mistress. Hopper was a driving force behind the state’s new labor laws, the Raw Story reports, and his wife says she'll be happy to sign the recall petition against him. The family maid already has.

As for the mistress, she currently works for a right-wing advocacy group (which Raw Story notes has scrubbed her profile from their website), but she is a former state senate staffer who, er, worked with Hopper.
