By now you’ve probably heard the news that sleazy, outside special interests funded by the Koch Brothers are bussing in paid supporters to prop up Scott Walker's "divide and conquer" agenda of job loss and disunity.
A video recently went viral of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker telling a billionaire donor in January 2011 that he planned to employ a "divide and conquer" strategy to take away working peoples' rights -- a move that ultimately sparked historic protests and led to the upcoming June 5 recall election that close to one million voters demanded.
The recall of Scott Walker on June 5th will be one of the most important elections in the history of Wisconsin. It’s also the first step in taking down extreme, right-wing Republicans all over the nation. All eyes are on Wisconsin as we prepare to win this fight for working families everywhere.
After months of historic division, job loss, criminal corruption and partisan power grabs, Tom Barrett will put Wisconsin first and end Scott Walker’s ideological civil war.
