As you are undoubtedly aware, Wisconsin has become one of the primary battlefields for labor union reform: having lost at the ballot box last November, Democrats and Big Labor both have been fighting a vicious rear guard action against any attempts to reform collective bargaining and organizing ever since. Currently, the focus is on several hypothetical recall elections – and an actual judiciary election (David Prosser vs. Joanne Kloppenburg) that has already demonstrated that Kloppenburg is happy to associate herself with people who would trivialize pedophilia, just to win. It’s that kind of situation, unfortunately: and I spoke with Governor Scott Walker about it and related matters this morning.
The recall elections in Wisconsin are particularly important because outside money from Big Labor and national Democrats is pouring in; the Republican state senators affected are going to need all the help that they can get. The Republican Party of Wisconsin has set a site called Frontline Wisconsin to help fund whatever races occur: the money goes directly to the state senators in question – and, more importantly, will let them know that they haven’t been forgotten. Given that they and their families have been threatened with death for doing their jobs – threats ignored by the so-called ‘leadership’ in the national Democratic party, mostly because the national Democratic party has no intention of breaking with Big Labor’s corrupt leadership – these senators could use the support.
