Walker steers WEDC money to Donors, with no expectations of job creation.

Scott Walker is proving that being a career politician makes him a lousy business man. If "stand with Walker" supporters like him as governor, they should at least see how he does as chair of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. It's his baby, and he's botched it up badly:
Too much to ask?
A report released today by One Wisconsin Now raises serious questions about who is really benefiting. 

The report found that owners or employees of 30 percent of businesses receiving WEDC assistance contributed to Gov. Walker's campaign or the Republican Governors Association (RGA). Meanwhile these same businesses received almost 60 percent of WEDC economic development funds - $570 million in total. 

WEDC economic development dollars are not resulting in promised job creation. 
Job development is joke, meant to handout even more corporate welfare.

This is EXACTLY how Scott Walker operates. Now that the WSJ has finally realized that Scott Walker will throw ANYONE under the bus quietly to save his own hide. Nothing delights me more than to hear that a politican bought by the 1% will turn on them to save himself. Put more pressure on Walker - let's see who he will rat out next!! HAHAHAHA

I am a Scott Walker campaign donor, I pay my taxes. Public campaign financing in it's simplest form.
