Blogger Finds Walker's 'New Businesses' Include Scouts, Little League, Condo Associations...
A tip of the hat to blogger and investigative reporter Jud Lounsbury, who does some digging into Scott Walker's business-creating claims and finds these astounding examples:
For example, the Montello Little League team organized with the state for the first time on March 3, 2013. Because this was a new "business entity" it went into the list of "new businesses" Walker is claiming he created.
Oh, but it gets better…on August 7, 2013 the Oak Creek Little League Team was restored to good standing, was issued a "certificate of reinstatement" and bang: Scott Walker has another "new business."
And we're not just talking Little League teams. The Reedsburg Girl Scout troop, Madison Ping-Pong Club, Waupaca Rotary Club, Columbus Historical Society, Oconto Jaycees, Blue Mound Nordic Ski Club, Clyman Lions Club, Three Rivers Bird Watchers Club, Menomonee Falls Choir Association...Pepin Yacht Club [and]...241 organizations with "club" in the title, 102 with "friends," 75 condo associations, 458 associations (mostly real estate), 360 foundations, 211 churches and over 200 with football, baseball or some other sport in the name.
This is so pathetic - it would be funny except that of course people are getting kicked off of Badgercare and Unemployment Insurance is going to be cut from 26 weeks to 12.
anonymous 1 - i don't think the maximum length of a claim for regular unemployment benefits is being reduced as you say. however, the definition of what is "misconduct" is being changed, and a new category of disqualification called "substantial fault" is being created. only north carolina has a similar statute.these changes will probably result in more disqualifications.
wisconsin republicans are the Bad News Bears.
So is this the reverse of Citizens United. Get a group of like minded people together and it will morph into a job creator.
With Walkers reasoning street gangs are job creators.
