Skip to comments.Government e-mails reveal plot to stall budget repair bill
Posted on 03/02/2011 8:17:58 PM PST by Brown Deer
Before protesters stormed the capitol, the Mayor of the City of Madison tried to pull a fast one. The Governor's budget repair bill was on the fast track, and Madison Mayor Dave Ciesliewicz was racing against the clock to pass new union contracts first.
E-mails obtained by the FOX6 Investigators show that the mayor enlisted the help of State Senator Mark Miller. They both tried to convince the Secretary of State to hold up the bill by taking the maximum 10 days allowed by law before publishing the bill.
They were trying to buy some time so they could ratify new contracts to protect workers from benefit cuts. Citizens for Responsible Government Rep. Chris Kliesmet says, "This suggests, and this is a harsh word, collusion. There is collusion between some politicians and public sector employee unions. Period."

Thanks Brown Deer.
Oooh a realization ... well golly, perhaps better late than never.
I’ve negotiated numerous labor contracts for public agencies. In most cases, my bargaining team was composed of managers and administrators who were in the same group, for insurance purposes, as the employees the union was representing, and stood to get the exact same benefit increases the union mugged the taxpayers out of. They could also count on getting the same raise as the union members after the contract was settled.
The governing body of the agency invariably had a least one or two, and sometimes a majority, of elected members who were elected with strong union support, and in a few cases even had members of the union elected. The entire process of public agency union collective bargaining is rotten to the very core, and amounts to no less than legally sanctioned plunder of the treasury. No one represents the public and the taxpayer in the process, and if there was any justice the corrupt politicians who foist this system on the American public in many states would find their rotten carcasses rotting in jail.
dimoKKKRATS caught red handed fleecing the tax payers to help their union buddies so that they can contribute money to the DNC. Just an old fashion con-game at the expense of the tax payer.
Who cares? Nobody gets fired, nobody pays a price, Anarchy is reigning at the WI Capital, Nobody is arrested. It’s all about PR, not law and order.
“They both tried to convince the Secretary of State to hold up the bill by taking the maximum 10 days allowed by law before publishing the bill. “
hmmmmmm....Secretaries of State.....bought off by Soros.
Good relations and no money works for me.
The Unions might as well officially become part of the DNC. Or is that the DNC become part of the Unions? Hmm.
They were trying to buy some time so they could ratify new contracts to protect workers from benefit cuts. Citizens for Responsible Government Rep. Chris Kliesmet says, "This suggests, and this is a harsh word, collusion. There is collusion between some politicians and public sector employee unions. Period."Just as has been speculated on the WI board!
Every last one of these pond scum-swilling reprobates oughta be found dancing under the trees with their loafers two feet off the turf.
Yep. You nailed it. There won’t be any repercussions for the Dems. There never are, and I imagine some GOP members will take the fall without any support, solely because the GOP doesn’t have a slush fund of taxpayer dollars to spend.
The Secretary of State project.
Thank you for the link.
I live in one of those states...
Democrat corruption in a concentrated parasite nest (”city”) like Madison, Wisconsin?
No. That just can’t be. I’ll believe it when our crackerjack FBI hands up the indictments.
Finally they are starting to wake-up. See this post from me last night,
And I have been saying this for awhile and being politely FR ignored. I am tellin' you all if we don't start muckraking the democrats across the coals and forcing prosecutions we're are going to lose the battle to keep our country a Nation of Laws!
IF the GOP won't prosecute, and we really need to stop depending on them to do this, it is up to We the People to demand justice!
