Wisconsin Union-Crippling Vote is All About the 2012 Election
You already knew that of course. But this time it’s not just a bunch of liberal tinfoil-hatters saying it. This time it’s straight out of the Koch-cum-infested mouth of Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald.
On Fox News, the Koch Whore said:
“If we win this battle, and the money is not there under the auspices of the unions, certainly what you’re going to find is President Obama is going to have a much difficult, much more difficult time getting elected and winning the state of Wisconsin.”
For now, Wisconsin is locked in a He Said She Said argument over whether the union-crippling vote violated Wisconsin’s open meetings law. Democrats say the open meetings law was violated; Republicans say it wasn’t. Maybe the new law will be tied up in the courts for awhile.
Hopefully a few Wisconsin Republicans will have been recalled by the time the issue is settled.
And here’s one for the books: a lobbying firm, BGR Group, will be holding a fundraiser for Wisconsin’s Corporate Republicans. They need a fundraiser? What’s next, an emergency relief drive for Wall Street CEOs? Donating a slingshot to Goliath?
