Part of a campaign promise during the elections
in 1978 to bring the "Statue of Liberty to Madison" As a result of this
effort the Pail and Shovel Party (Stu was one of the major masterminds)
was given the Politician of the Year award for keeping the most
campaign promises of any Wisconsin elected officials. The Daily
Cardinal was outraged by this expenditure and actually burned
it down. The following year after re-election the Statue was rebuilt.
A security guard was placed inside of the head after getting an ice
fishing hut permit.
