    Dear Governor Walker,

    I am informed that a tape recording has been released in which you apparently held an
    extensive discussion with someone you believed to be your campaign supporter, David
    Koch. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel states that the caller was actually a reporter,
    pretending to be David Koch, and it has posted a transcript of the recording. It appears
    that you admit the call occurred, and have not contested the authenticity of transcript.
    David Koch is the billionaire businessman who reportedly contributed thousands to your
    campaign and who the media claims is a key source of funding for shadowy political
    groups that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars attacking your political adversaries in
    our state.
    At a historic moment in our State’s history, brought on by your refusal to compromise
    with elected officials regarding the elimination of worker’s rights, you still refuse to talk
    with Democratic legislators. However, you apparently have no problem taking a phone
    call from “Mr. Koch” and to:

    • Discuss your strategy to lay off public workers to seek partisan advantage to pass
    your agenda;
    • Discuss your plan to lure Democratic legislators to the Capitol on the pretext of
    negotiation, but then state that you would never actually negotiate;
    • Discuss your plan to use the pretext of negotiation to get a quorum for legislative
    fiscal action that Republicans so far have not been able to do;
    • Discuss that you considered the “planting” of paid troublemakers into the
    peaceful protests at our Capitol; and to
    • Give your enthusiastic acceptance to an offer from “Koch” to fly you out on a
    vacation to show you a “good time” once you “crush these bastards.” Your
    response was “That would be outstanding…” Given that Koch’s businesses could
    reap vast rewards with the ‘no bid’ sale of the Wisconsin’s power plants that you
    propose in your budget repair bill, this response is severely troubling.

    Governor Walker, this tape would make Richard Nixon blush. If the recording and the
    items discussed by you are indeed your plans, you have no business being in public office
    in our State, and should resign.
    Sincerely,

    Tim Carpenter

    This is rich.

    The asswipe who is derelict in his duty and cowering in a neighboring state is demanding that Walker resign.

    The rank hubris is astonishing.

    Another one of the Dems on the run whines and smells bad:


    “I really miss my kids, and I’m going to have to find a Laundromat soon, said Mr. Erpenbach, who is living, he says, out of a duffel and a backpack. “But I can deal with this. When we come home is up to the governor.”

    He's deserted his duties as an elected official and actually has the balls to demand the resignation of the elected Gov?? The Gov who IS doing what he was elected to do??

    Another flamming idiot.

    He's probably related to Pelosi.
