    on a candidate's behalf from mysterious out-of-state groups connected with Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, Grover Norquist, and Dick Armey is a pretty good indicator of what you're in for.

      in the bill that allows public utilities to be sold off to private industry.  Now, I'm not sure about any of this, but have seen that the Koch brothers are in this industry.  Earlier today on a WI blog, I saw that someone had captured a screen shot of Koch industry's add for hiring utility plant managers in WI.  

      I have no idea if this add would have been there already as they may already own utilities in WI or if this is in planning stages for if/when the bill goes through and they get to purchase more public utilities.  

      I am not by any means an expert on any of this, nor do I right now have the time to pursue this whole thing.  Does anyone else know about all of this?  Is this all true?  If so, it's pretty f**in' blatant.

        Koch Brothers were the #2 donors to Walkers campaign and God only knows how many millions they added to the incessant 24/7 attack ads that ran on every station in Wisconsin.

        Koch wants payback on their payola.  To them this was simply a business investment.

        There already is class warfare in this country. Unfortunately, the rich are winning. Sue, West Allis, Wis.
