The Good Old Days Of 2013, When Walker Loved Trek

I noted in a blog post that only a few months ago the economic development corporation that Wrong-Way Walker created and chairs was singing Trek's praises until Walker found a negative way to use the same company to advance his re-election campaign.

With apologies to Johnny Mathis and Bonnie Raitt fans and to John Burke, too, can you remember a more blatant self-serving Wisconsin political example of 'first you love me, then you snub me?'

Isn't it true that TREK produces 99% of it product overseas?
