What budget crisis????????????

Since taking office in January, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has stripped public workers of their collective bargaining rights, proposed wage cuts to local government employees, and insisted that his “state is broke” and that its public workers are overpaid. But Walker applies a different standard to himself.

Today, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reveals that Walker is using state funds to pay more than <span style='font-size: 26pt'>$81,500 a year to the 26-year-old son of a major campaign donor with no college degree and two drunken-driving convictions.</span>

Despite having almost no management experience, UW Madison college dropout Brian Deschane now oversees state environmental and regulatory issues and manages dozens of Commerce Department employees. <span style='font-size: 26pt'>After only two months on the job, Deschane has already received a 26 percent pay raise and a promotion.</span> </div></div>

How about that other conservative cost cutting hero of the right?

Last week, ThinkProgress broke a story revealing that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) placed nearly $1 million in earmarks potentially benefiting real estate property that he owns. <span style='font-size: 26pt'>In early 2008, Issa publicly listed a multi-million earmark improvement on West Vista Way in Vista, California. Later that year, Issa purchased a $16.6 million medical office building on the same road where he had requested an earmark. He made the purchase with the knowledge that the earmark was pending, then finalized the deal before slipping the earmark into an Omnibus spending bill.</span>

On Saturday, Jeff McDonald at the San Diego Union-Tribune published an article about the controversy. Reached for comment, Issa’s spokesman Frederick Hill called ThinkProgres “part of a left-wing attack machine.” However, in his next statement to McDonald, Issa’s spokesman appeared to concede that the earmark represented a conflict of interest:

“Representative Issa started making requests for West Vista Way in 2006,” Hill said. “After he bought the building, he didn’t make any more requests. The allegation by Think Progress is patently false.”

By claiming that the Issa consciously “didn’t make any more [earmark] requests” to improve the West Vista Road after the building purchase, Issa’s spokesman is tacitly acknowledging that the earmark would financially benefit Issa’s real estate, and that such earmark is unethical.

In fact, Issa did continue earmarking to improve the road leading to his office building after the purchase was made. </div></div> read it (http://thinkprogress.org/2011/04/04/issa-responds-earmark-scandal/)



So, all in all, the new dynamic Cons, the darlings of the TP and the foolish, are a bunch of lying crooks.

Why does your link take us to something completely unrelated?

Tell the truth ... this was spoonfed to you from elsewhere.

The dropout thing is pretty bad.

Putting a doc you know on a state medical board is a quite petty thing however.

BTW ... were you bothered when William Jefferson Clintoin nominated his personal doctor as US Surgeon General?

I didn't think so, and neither was I.

But, I'm consistent and you are hyperpartisan.

If you accept the above practice then stop complaining. STFU about everything.
Here we have two budget whores who claim their states are broke but they can still find money to repay their sponsors and personal friends while telling teachers they have to take a pay cut.

As for Issa watch it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dLBbgBr3CBg)

ABSOLUTELY! Hypocrites and crooks, extraordinaire!

The Republican big spenders put us into this mess, then they turn right around and blame others for the debts which they and BUSH ran up, and the resulting collapsed economy, and then turn right around pretend, AGAIN, that they care about Americans.

Ha ha ha ha, only if they're rich Americans, obviously!

How many friends and supporters of Obama are now working in his administration?
How many of GW's friends and supporters worked in his administration?
How many of Clinton's friends and supporters worked in his administration.

Here's a clue...anyone put in that job is going to want people they know surrounding them. They are going to want people who look at things the same way they do.

This practice is nothing new, and isn't going to change. And it is done at all levels of government, and if it is done openly and legally, I don't have a problem with it at all.

If I were elected to public office, you better believe my staff would be people I know.
