Senator Johnson’s Multi-Millionaire Madness: The Final Four
Round one is over, and it’s a race to the bottom.
MADISON — Round one is over, and it’s a race to the bottom for which of Sen. Johnson’s ethically dubious decisions will win it all. All totaled, Johnson’s ethically and legally questionable offenses amount to tens of millions of dollars, so it’s tough to narrow them down. But only four of Johnson’s worst decisions could make it to the next round.
Here are the final four. You can see the updated bracket here:
SHADY REGION: Suitcase of Cash vs Private Planes, Winner: Suitcase of Cash
Money talks, and Tony Blando’s $48,000 in cash screams louder than a private plane’s jet engine. Suitcase of cash moves on to the final four.
Golden Parachute vs Stashing Cash, Winner: Golden Parachute
A 16 seed has never upset a number 1 seed, and that won’t change today. Senator Johnson’s likely illegal $10 million golden parachute floats to the final four.
SUSPECT REGION: Hollywood vs Handouts, Winner: Hollywood
Upset alert. Just like the underdogs who defeated Lord Business, Senator Johnson’s waste of $2,800 in taxpayer money on a vanity video project vanquished his love of corporate handouts.
All in the family vs Money Talks, Winner: All in the Family
This was close. But beating $20,000 worth of cups was too tall an order for Kirstin Hopkins to fill. All in the family moves on.
