Is it right that Scott Walker made the largest cuts to public education in Wisconsin history while giving $2.3 billion in tax breaks to big corporations over the next 10 years?
Is it right that Scott Walker buddies up with billionaires while Wisconsin families suffer the worst record of job loss in the country?
Is it right that Scott Walker needs a criminal defense fund worth more than the average Wisconsin worker makes in a year, but does not think we deserve to know the truth about why he needs it?
--Mahlon Mitchell asks three questions every Wisconsin voter should consider.
Gov. Walker Transferred Another $100,000 From Campaign Fund to His Criminal Defense Fund
That brings the amount of campaign money he’s spent on his defense attorneys to $160,000 in the past six weeks alone.
Political Money Talks
From the New York Times:
As Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin faces a well deserved recall vote next month after stripping public unions of their bargaining rights, voters are discovering the generosity of Diane Hendricks. Ms. Hendricks, the billionaire chairwoman of the nation’s largest roofing and siding wholesaler, wrote a check for $500,000 last month to help defend Governor Walker, a Republican, against his Democratic challenger, Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee.
Diane Hendricks is the donor Scott Walker was speaking with about his plan to “divide and conquer” Wisconsin workers so that the state could eventually become a right-to-work state.
Ms. Hendricks is only one of the governor’s big-moneyed and antiunion friends. He has raised more than $25 million since taking office. The first year of his official calendar shows significant access for companies that helped him with large political donations, according to the nonprofit Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.
Governor Walker’s office says this access only confirms how sincere the governor was in promising to seek out “job creators” and proclaiming Wisconsin “open for business” from his first day in office. Recall voters should have no doubt about the real business of big-money politics signaled by that $500,000 check.

This race in Wisconsin is the most important race in the country before the presidential election. June 5th. Republicans think they’ve got it in the bag. And if they do, they’re on their way to a permanent structural advantage over the Democratic party for which there is no repair. There’s no way to undo it. And that will affect every race in every partisan election on every ballot. It is less than two weeks until the vote in Wisconsin. At this point, the Democrats should be fighting for this like the existence of their party depends on it. Because it does.
