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!
