The first Republican Reich in the US was hatched when Wisconsin became the Republican Fascist Plutocracy of Fitzwalkerstan, headed by Fartfuhrer Scott Walker.  Other Republican Reichs have followed.  We have the Republican Fascist Plutocracy of Brewerstan, whose Fuhrer is Death Angel Jan Brewer, and the Republican Plutocratic Theocracy of McCrorystan, headed by TEAfuhrer Pat McCrory.  The last has been grabbing the headlines, but Fartfuhrer Walker refuses to be outdone.

A small GOP lobby shop tied to the Tea Party and David Koch's Americans for Prosperity, and which was active in the state's recent recall elections, was awarded $500,000 in taxpayer dollars in what some are calling a backdoor, sweetheart deal cooked up by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) State Chair, outgoing Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder.

The United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation was the only applicant for a newly-created grant to promote hunting, fishing, and trapping in the state, despite the organization having no record in outdoors training. The grant was slipped into the budget bill by Suder and barely advertised, and other outdoors groups with more experience in the area were largely excluded. Suder has ties to United Sportsmen, and announced last week he would be leaving the Assembly for a higher-paying job in Walker administration.

The organization's record, thus far, appears to be that of a lobbying organization for an array of Republican priorities, from mining to the "Castle Doctrine" — neither of which has anything to do with hunting or fishing — and working with Americans for Prosperity to organize events and support Republicans in the 2011 recall elections… [emphasis added]

You might think that the Koch Brothers, have enough of their own money to finance stealing the election, without having to steal the money to do it.  And the Koch sucker, who pulled it off for them, Suder, gets a reward.  He gets a staff job for the Fartfuhrer.  We need a sign to post: Republican Criminals at Work!

  1. We have got to have reforms to all our parliaments so that one bill is submitted for one cause – even if it means thirty votes a day – at least people would vote for things openly – and knowingly – and sneaky underhand deals like this wouldn't get through!  How can these fascists who are stealing food and medicines from the disadvantaged give half a million dollars in a hunting grant to a group which has unaccountably never done that sort of thing before?!!!  To say that it stinks is an understatement!

     

    • I fully agree.  If frustrates me to see Obama blasted for not vetoing a bill, because it contains a very bad provision, when if he did veto it, the effects would be catastrophic in twenty other ways.  We need a law that all amendments to a bill be related to the porpose of that bill.

  2. Methinks Suder has higher aspirations in the FitzWalkerstan Reich. He is kissing a lot of KochAss.

  3. I presume you are using the "Fitz" in its traditional heraldic meaning of "born out of wedlock"?

  4. "United Sportsmen presents itself as an organization focused on hunting and fishing, …" — It just does not tell you for what it is hunting or fishing!  Maybe 'fishing 'for funds to 'hunt' Democrats?

    So Suder is connected to the United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation.  In his political role, he manages to slip a newly created grant of $500,000 into the state budget.  That grant is then awarded to the United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation.  Hmmm. . . conflict of interest?  I think so!  Misappropriation of funds for partisan politics?  I think so!  On top of that, United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation is essentially an unregistered lobbying firm along with other entities as noted in the link.

    As Sir Walter Scott said "O what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to decieve."  I hope this comes back to bite Walker et al in the ass, big time!

    Caution: Koch Suck area… :smile:

  6. Beware the Koch brothers if  you are middle class or attempting to become middle class.  They are out to destroy you by any means necessary.    These sweetheart deals should be investigated by the Justice dept.
