A New York-based blogger says he got through to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on the phone by posing as right-wing financier David Koch, then had a far-ranging 20-minute conversation about the collective bargaining protests. According to the audio, Walker told him:
- That statehouse GOPers would be holding on to Democratic senators’ pay until they returned to vote on the controversial union-busting bill.
- That they were looking to nail Dems on ethics violations if they took meals or lodging from union supporters.
- That he’d take “Koch” up on this offer “once you crush these bastards I’ll fly you out to Cali and really show you a good time.”
Is this for real? Listen to the tapes and tell us what you think.
