    Bi-partisan my arse! You get to own this GOP. Assuming the organized crime syndicate known as the WI GOP has not yet rigged the voting machines, they are going to pay for this boondoggle/ future scandal at the ballot box.
    The removal of Peter Barca and pending election of Gordon Hintz, an outspoken critic of this deal, to the minority assembly leader position indicates the DEM’s plan on making this a central issue of next year’s election. As they should!

  2. John says:

    Bi-Partisan? One and only one Democratic Senator voted in favor, Bob Wirch of Kenosha. As usual Scotty only has a tiny thread of truth, if even that, in what he says.

  3. WashCoRepub says:

    Thanks and praise to Senator Wirch, who puts jobs above party politics! Would be nice to see more of this in the future, from both sides.

  4. Rich says:

    Bob Wirch only voted to save his own ass; the ghost of George Petak is still visible down there.
