    In a move of incredulous arrogance the Gov. of Wisconsin has exposed himself as a class A hypocrite. Walker claims Government Workers deserve less but the children of those who donate to him are to be rewarded.

    See: Walker demotes son of campaign contributor - JSOnline

    Consider, the Quid Pro Quo. If it looks like a bribe, smells like a bribe and money changed hands, it is a BRIBE.

    Should Gov. Walker be investigated for accepting a bribe:

    1. Yes

    2. No

    3. I refuse to answer as it may tend to reflect blame on a Republican (R. Reagan Commandment).

    Heh, I thought this thread was about the OTHER time Walker may or may not have accepted a bribe.

    That Walker guy is such a kidder!

    I dont know.

    I'm from MA and thats how business is done in this state :lol:.

    Seems fishy to me, I dont like it when my governor does this stuff here so I can't approve if thats what he is doing in WI.


    BTW that was just a tiny story, I can get you dozens from local papers if you really dont beleive me about my governor doing the same shady hiring/job stuff with people.

    Same thing here in Ohio, right when our governor took office he invented a few 6 figure office positions and coincidentally hired all his pals to take those spots.

    If enough of them do it, it will become the norm and another thing those of us in the public will just have to become numb to :(.

    Not saying its right not saying its wrong just saying its the SSDD, what cracks me up is hypocrites screaming at only one side while turning a blind eye to the obvious.

    It seems both sides of the aisle, thus far, agree such behavior is both common and unacceptable. Isn't the investigaton of a high profile Governor the first step in a process to bring intergrity to elected office?
