Scott Walker: Fireside chat No. 2

Update: Walker totally fell for it. For nearly 20 minutes.

"They're probably puttin' hobos in suits. That's what we do."

This fireside chat purportedly is with a "David Koch."
"Koch" — [Laughs] Well, I tell you what, Scott. Once you crush these bastards I'll fly you out to Cali and really show you a good time.

Walker — All right, that would be outstanding.
Governor Walker also tells "David Koch" he's got Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen looking into potential felony charges against the 14 Democratic State senators reportedly now ensconced in Illinois.

Walker theorizes that if the 14 Democratic senators are accepting money from unions for food and lodging, the purpose of such payments may be "to keep [the senators] from doing their job." He says that situation is "at minimum an ethics code violation ... We're trying about four or five different angles," adds Governor Walker.

No doubt they'll come up with something (something far removed from Walker's apparent willingness to hop a Koch junket to Cali).

eta: The server is swamped. Dan Cody has the recordings.

The tapes are certainly embarrassing, but I didn't hear any smoking guns going off. I was hoping to hear Scotty go all quid pro quo about the state power plants he plans to sell to the lowest bidder.

Funny thought: How will the real David Koch ever get through to Scotty?

Peg Lautenschlager disagrees (bit weak, IMO).

I think we need to request protection from the President of the United States.

There has been multiple murder attempts or threats on me, our computers have been hacked, our home set up with numerous wireless video and audio devices, we are followed everywhere we go and when we home we find someone has been there. There also was. Two way mirror set up in our master bathroom.

Local law said we are crazy and parinoid and told us we need to prove a crime was committed before they would investigate.We called 911 when someone was in our attic and they refused to iinvestigste

We also ask the State Attorney General to enforce a law to take away a threat to our home and peace of mind and he declined to act.

How does that compare to 14 Senatorx who appear to me to be doing their jobs in a way they believe is best.
