Anti-science crowd holding GOP fundraiser Wednesday

[Updated Wednesday, 11:19 a.m.] 

Brown County alert: Wisconsin US Senator and book-learning foe Ron Johnson will be in the spotlight at a fundraising event this evening raising money for fellow pollution backer Brian Schimel, the Waukesha County DA and GOP Attorney General hopeful. 

For $1,000 you can get your picture taken with RoJo, though surprisingly, Big Government legal tender is mandatory, while Bitcoin and other freedom currencies are not acceptable. Go figure.
Reception for Brad Schimel for AG. 
10/1/2014 5:30 p.m. 
Green Bay Distillery, 835 Potts Ave., Ashwaubenon. 
With special guest U.S. Senator Ron Johnson 
5:30 PM – Host Reception/Photo Opportunity 6:00PM – Main Reception 
$1,000 – Platinum Host , $500 – Gold Host, or $250 – Silver HostAttendees: $100 per person 
PAC contributions are welcome
We know that flat earthers like Johnson believes sunspot activity, not human action like power plants and vehicle emissions, is fueling climate change, despite reams of science to the contrary.

Johnson is the author of the phrase "environmental jihad."

Also for legacy purposes, we note that PoilitiFact rated as "true" the allegation that Johnson has voted in favor of "unlimited" carbon dioxide pollution. 

Because he did it twice.

So you can expect to see the PAC contributions roll in tomorrow, as Schimel has the requisite Ron Johnson fossil-fuel-pollution-is-OK talking point down pat
If elected, Schimel said one of his first acts would be to join Republican attorneys general in a legal challenge to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions to slow global climate change.
Because if there's one thing the planet needs right now, it's more powerful politicians pushing extra pollution into the atmosphere.

Better get in my SUV and drive right up Ther, at 70 mph -- or more! Think the troopers will let me go with a warning if I tell the where I'm headed?

Whereas Johnson, with every utterance, lives his recent Clueless Award from the Washingtonian magazine, we can only hope that for just once, Obobmba would live up to his Nobel Peace Prize.
