Serial liar Scott Walker (R-Kochbitchistan) is up for recall, and as an out-of-state observer, I don’t see the question. He’s out to screw 99% of Wisconsinites for the benefit of a few – and not necessarily a few Wisconsinites.
Here’s some dish on one of his cronies:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s 2011 statement that going after collective bargaining for public workers was the first step in his plan to divide and conquer was made to billionaire roofing and siding wholesaler Diane Hendricks, who had asked him, “Any chance we’ll ever get to be a completely red state and work on these unions and become a right-to-work? What can we do to help you?” While the things Hendricks has done to help Scott Walker personally include more than $500,000 in campaign contributions, she’s apparently much less interested in helping Wisconsin by paying corporate taxes.
Despite annual sales of around $5 billion, Hendricks’ company, ABC Supply, paid nothing in state corporate income tax between 2005 and 2008, the most recent years for which the information was available.
But really, I wanted to save the “divide and conquer” quote for posterity. See the post for video. Really, Wisconsin, where’s the question?
