WISGOP: Ban Second Homes, Pay Wisconsin State Taxes even if you don't live here.

I can’t believe I’m going to agree with WISGOP for once. For instance, today is national “I Forgot” day, and WISGOP pointed out some things that Mary Burke forgot. Another WISGOP expose':
“Things Burke Has Somehow Forgotten: Disclosing to voters her swanky second home, which is valued at nearly $600,000.”
I’m with WISGOP on this one. If voters knew she had two homes...? And let's face it, a lot of people don’t have expensive second homes, so why should anyone else have one? Government should definitely ban “swanky” second homes.    
“Things Burke Has Somehow Forgotten: She didn't pay taxes at several points in her career.”
Agreed, Burke and every other non-resident citizen living abroad or working in another state, should pay a Wisconsin state tax. There's just no excuse. 

And here I thought WISGOP’s Joe Fadness wasn’t as smart as Reince Priebus.

Mary Burke has made no secret of her second home, on which I am sure she pays taxes. It's mentioned in the profile in Milwaukee Magazine and was mentioned in earlier profiles. Why the slam?
