GOP, Oligarchs' Wisconsin Hypocrisy

With ads and nicknames, Republicans are campaigning against Mary Burke's wealth.

Are we to believe the GOP is salt-of-the-earth here?


Scott Walker is the favorite of the biggest state 1% club, a/k/a/ The Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, plus distant billionaires, from the oil-producing, Kansas-based Koch brothers' through Americans for Prosperity, to Las Vegas/Macau casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

Walker raked in record-setting millions for his 2010 and 2012 campaigns, plus big-donor funding for his John Doe legal defense fund, and is out-of-state often to raise fresh cash for his 2014 run, and beyond.

Here's a report on Walker's big 2012 donors: Adelson is down for $250,000.

And Burke is targeted for her money?

So do not expect Walker, his handlers or the GOP to be the least bit slowed down or ashamed by this hypocritical revelation:
