  •  It's not fine to do political work (7+ / 0-)

    while in a taxpayer funded facility or on taxpayer time.  It's so "not fine" that it's a felony and anyone that was around in the 1990s for the Caucus Scandal, which involved the same issue, knows it's illegal.

    I have been wanting to know who's paying for these lawyers, too.  In fact, everyone wants to know.  

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

    •  ANd guess who WAS around in the 90's for the (8+ / 0-)

      causus scandal.......?

      Walker and Reindfleish.

      Both knew it was wrong.  That is whay the secret email was set up and that is why kelly said in one of her emails as GGB diaried yesterday that "things need to stay covert so as to protect Scotty"

      •  Walker keeps on avoiding getting stuff (4+ / 0-)

        stuck to him.  He's even more Teflon Man than Ronald Reagan.

        Mark Foley, who was caught sending lewd e-mails to a 16-year-old congressional page and lost his seat in Congress back in 2006 because of it, advised Allen West on his congressional re-election campaign in Florida. West lost to Democrat Patrick Murphy.

        Also, Scott Jensen, the disgraced former Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker who was implicated in the Caucusgate scandal is now a powerful lobbyist for the pro-school voucher group American Federation for Children. Jensen's AFC tried to ratfuck five Democratic primaries for Milwaukee-area state legislative races in Wisconsin, and all five AFC-backed Democratic candidates lost to progressive Democratic challengers.

        When Democrats break the law, we usually disavow them (Rod Blagojevich, Chuck Chvala, etc.), yet when Republicans break the law, they usually end up on what I like to call "Wingnut Welfare", in which disgraced Republicans end up with some sort of insider role with a Republican campaign for public office or a Republican front group.

        Committed to making sure that Mark Kirk and Ron Johnson are shown the door in 2016!

          a few decades.  They reward all their loyal lackeys.
