Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is turning to millionaires and billionaires outside of Wisconsin to keep his job.  A new SuperPAC sprug up in the Badger state this week calling itself the “Defeat the Recall” campaign.  And looking at the donors list – the SuperPAC has very little to do with Wisconsin.  Of the 336 revealed donors, only 18 are Wisconsin residents.  And according to an FEC filing – of the nine donors who’ve given more than $200 – not a single one hails from Wisconsin. 

After more than a million people signed recall petitions to kick Walker out of office – Walker’s been seeing flying off to Wall Street and Texas to get big bucks from banksters and oil barons like the Koch brothers.  Democracy is under assault in Wisconsin – let’s hope working people, united, can successfully fight back.
