Prank Call Proves Billionaire David Koch Owns Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker And The GOP


A prank caller pretending to be billionaire conservative businessman David Koch was able to have a lengthy conversation with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker about his strategy to cripple public employee unions, the governor's office confirmed Wednesday.

On the call, Walker joked about bringing a baseball bat to a meeting with Democratic leaders, said it would "be outstanding" to be flown out to California by Koch for a good time after the battle is over, and said he expected the anti-union movement to spread across the country.

Audio was posted on the Buffalo Beast, a left-leaning website based in New York, and quickly spread across the Internet.

Democrats ripped Walker's comments on the call on the Assembly floor Wednesday morning, saying they had nothing to do with his assertion that legislation stripping public employees' collective bargaining rights is needed to help solve a looming budget deficit.
"That's why we must fight it! That is why people must come to the Capitol and fight this!" Rep. Jon Richards of Milwaukee yelled as thousands of protesters inside the rotunda roared in approval. "This isn't about balancing the budget, this is about a political war."

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie confirmed Walker took the call, which will only heighten widespread suspicions that brothers David and Charles Koch are pulling strings in Wisconsin's battle as part of a conservative agenda to limit the unions' power.
The governor's plan would take away the ability of state and local public employees to collectively bargain for working conditions, benefits, or any other than their base salaries. Unions could not collect mandatory dues and would face a vote of its members every year to stay in existence.

The plan has set off more than a week of demonstrations at the Capitol, and prompted Wisconsin Senate Democrats to flee the state to block its passage. Similar ideas are being pushed in some other states with Republican governors.
The man pretending to be Koch said, "You're the first domino."

Of course trying to stop the selling of his state to Kock is just too late. Gov. Scott Walker says he won't be distracted by a prank phone call made by a blogger posing as one of his campaign donors, and he'll push forward with a bill to limit the power of public employee unions.....because that is what he was paid to do!!!

  1. Walker is nothing more than a spineless puppet who is needlessly stirring up the powder keg. Such ignorance and arrogance!

  2. There are two parts on You Tube to this.
    It's great hearing Walker explain how he's going to trick the Democrats in a procedural ruse...
    And he incriminates himself to boot! There are a lot of legal minds pouring over the statements in the tape as we speak and I read that there is enough evidence of ethics violations to demand that he resign.

  3. Hello Jack,
    It is quite clear just how much the GOP has been pimped off to the highest bidder and have forgone representing the citizens of the nations.

    My good friend Microdot,
    Wouldn't this be great that Gov. Walker loose his posistion instead of dismantaling the unions as he has been tasked to? We can only hope!!!

  5. Hello Laci,
    I am afraid you are correct but this exposed fact needs to get out to reach the middle of the political spectrum....This is where the elections are decided......I hope.

  6. POLL: IS THIS PHONE CALL GOING TO END SCOTT WALKER AS GOVERNOR?

    YES: 28%

    Wait, I have to ask David Vitter if his refrigerator is running: 9%

    No, abject stupidity performed WHILE backstabbing unions is a positive for GOP Governors: 63%

    Maybe Bart Simpson should call Walker and ask him to page IVANA TINKLE........

  7. Hello Microdot,
    If the masses allow Governor Scott Walker to get away with this blatant admission that the GOP sold the Public Unions to the Koch Brothers....then we are all damned.
