Well, it took awhile, but I see the so-called mainstream media finally got the story correct regarding the charge that Mary Burke was fired by Trek. She was not! And when such a story comes out days before the election, offered by a fired Trek employee, it does not take a mental genius to realize it is a scam and a lie. But for some reason it became the lead story in much of mainstream media in Wisconsin. Disgusting.
Imagine, the media runs with a headline story about Mary Burke being fired at Trek, even when the charge about her was leveled by two staunch Republican supporters. And they were actually released from Trek for unsatisfactory work themselves. Has professionalism totally left the media? Does anyone in the media have any ethics or professional morals? And for these distortions to suddenly be released a few days before the election! Have the Koch brothers also bought out the media's credentials?
Your life will be impacted by who it is that wins the next election. This is especially true of the office of Governor of Wisconsin. Regardless of how many lies and exaggerations Scott Walker puts out in his ads and comments, his administration, past and present, has been horrible. His PROMISE about job creation in the State has turned out to be a dismal failure. Income in Wisconsin has actually fallen under Walker. He pro-actively fought to deny women equal pay for equal work in Wisconsin. In both his time as Milwaukee Country Executive and Wisconsin Governor, his staffs have had people actually convicted of crimes related to their jobs under Walker. Walker and his supporters have fought to have poor people and minorities especially denied voting rights with their fight for photo identification in order to vote [with no evidence of wide-spread voter fraud as the right-wing has stated]. Walker and his supporters have fought to have the government poke its head into the examining rooms of physicians treating women. Walker is opposed to abortion, even in the cases of rape and incest. It goes on and on, folks. This man is a horrible governor.
When is it enough to finally say, "Governor Walker is just too crooked to hold the office as head of the State of Wisconsin"? The latest John Doe revelations about Walker's communications and intra-office dealings are just plain horrid. It is easy to see why the right-wingers and Walker fought so hard to silence the John Doe findings. And we still don't know all that was found. But what was found and revealed is so damning that it is impossible to vote for Scott Walker with a clear conscience.
