Wisconsin Democracy Campaign tracks plain old Walker's donors

Hat tip to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign for organizing and posting the data:

Any debate views whom Walker convinced last night into he's just the regular fella who winked and grinned his way while standing next to that mean billionaire Donald Trump should look at the rich folks whom Walker has been hanging with lately.

This is a list of only those donors who have given at least $50,000 to just one Walker fund-raising committee during only the first six months of this year.

"I'm just a regular guy with a wife, two kids and a Harley." BWAA HAA HAA!

Sue said...

Do they get to deduct that? Because that is a LOT of money to flush down the toilet.
Also, a woman listed her occupation as 'homemaker'. The pay must have improved since I was home with the kids.

Alois -- Can't you just see the production workers at Harley seething at that comment last night? The man has no clue whatsoever.

"I'm just a regular guy with a wife, two kids and a Harley."

I have some really kewl rich friends who give me rides in their private jets. They keep telling me I can be the next Richard Nixon or the next Joe McCarthy.

Jake formerly of the LP said...

Thank you for this list. Always good to know who I can.avoid (Road Ranger gas stations being a good example here)

Alois said...

my5cents -- he doesn't care about the folks who work at Harley-Davidson anymore than he cares about you (or me). If they won't build him a bike, he'll just make sure they never get a family-supporting job in WI again.

Btw Jake, Road Ranger several years back pulled all the condoms from their shelves as the evangelical zealot (who at that time at least) was anti-abortion. I know because I hauled them all back to the warehouse
