Must-read/distribute/save Scott Walker report card

The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign outdoes itself - - and wannabe documentarians like me - - with a dynamite, annotated list of Scott Walker's attacks on Wisconsin people, law, environment and quality of life.

New Report Details Assault on Wisconsin’s Way of Life by Walker, Legislature
April 26, 2016 Fist
The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign issued a report on Tuesday that covers 100 items approved by Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the legislature that have collectively assaulted Wisconsin’s democracy and the common good.
The report, “Walker’s Worst 100,” details measures approved since 2011 when Walker became governor and the Republicans took control of the legislature. These measures run the gamut:
Consumer Protection
Disability Rights
Immigrant Rights
Justice and the Courts
Labor Rights
Local Control
Public Education and School Vouchers
Safety Net
Taxes and Corporate Welfare
Voting and Elections
Women’s Health 
Collectively, these 100 items drew support from more than a dozen powerful special interests, mostly because the items signed into law benefited them at the expense of the general public. These special interests, including business, manufacturing, construction, real estate, energy, transportation, agriculture, and banking, contributed $14.4 million to the legislature, including $12.2 million to majority Republican lawmakers, and $32.2 million to Walker, between January 2011 and December 2015.
