Scott Walker is again running for governor. Scott Walker is an evolution-denying high school graduate. When he ran for president, it was embarrassing to be from Wisconsin. When he dropped out, the political cartoonists must have wept. He gave them such great material--build a border wall with Canada, take on ISIS the same way he took on the teachers union.
What Scott Walker is really good at is quid pro quo. This guy could school former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich? Did anyone doubt the Uihleins, Walker donors, would get their lakefront property? Did anyone doubt the factory farmers would be able to write their own rules even as more and more wells are contaminated? Even Gogebic Taconite couldn’t say they didn’t get their money’s worth from Scotty boy. I’m sure it was only coincidental that people who got WEDC money were donors.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a lead paint manufacturer, a resort owner, a mining company or a factory farmer. You’ll get your money’s worth from Scotty. Wisconsin isn’t open for business. It’s for sale.
If we elect him again, he’ll turn us into an Alabama or Mississippi: Bad schools, bad roads and no environmental protections.
