Are Stepp's tricks and treats DC-worthy

Some federal appointees in our Nation's Capital might want to read up on just who their new boss really is if Wisconsin DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp gets the job offer she wants from the same Donald Trump she last year pitched to the "ladies" even after Trump's Access Hollywood tape about kissing and groping 'ladies' had aired a million times:

*  You have to start with her own anti-DNR rant that proved to WI GOP Gov. Scott Walker that she had the right 'chamber of commerce mentality' to run the state's conservation, clean air and water agency.

*  Them there was the day she turned DNR offices into Halloween treats-and-fun houses.

*  And when she chaffed having to acknowledge state employees' rights and longed for the good old days when she could move around her McDonald's workers with more authority.

*  Yet she did get good ratings, from herself.

*  Though not everyone liked her posing with a tiny deer she shot.

In the upcoming TV Special "Deer Hunt Wisconsin 2012, Stepp urges male hunters to take more girls and women hunting. "The secret's out," she says. "Hunting is a lot of fun, so don't keep it to yourselves."  photo courtesy of Wisconsin DNR
*  Now to the more damaging matters, like helping Walker kill the DNR's nearly-century old popular, subscriber-paid magazine and also deleting climate change data and materials from the agency's web pages.

*  And serving as Walker's tool to turn the department into a pro-business, pollution-enabling agency.
