WI GOP's Financing FUBAR, or, When Geniuses Attack

Just the smarty-pants fiscal conservatives you'd want routing $4 billion to Foxconn and still writing the next state budget:
Republican Party maxed out credit card, racked up $600 in monthly interest as it tried to save Scott Walker 
The report concluded the state party was “essentially outsourced” to Walker’s campaign and was “a top-down bureaucracy, disconnected from local activists (and) recklessly reliant on outside consultants...”  
Toward the end of last year’s campaign, the party funneled $4 million toward Walker’s unsuccessful re-election bid, the report says. That was more than the party could bear financially.

And this is the guy leading a national push for a balanced budget?

You might as well name Donald Trump permanent chairman of The Respect the Constitution Committee.

In fact, Walker would have no problem with his campaign being put on a credit card: 
Scott Walker financial disclosure reveals high-interest credit card debt
The story also explains how big donor Diane Hendricks wrote the party a check to help pay off its credit card debt - - and that sheds light on why Republicans have no interest in helping students resolve their education loan or credit card. 

Just find a rich friend and stick you hand out, and problem solved.
