Koch Group Offers Illinois Residents Free Food, Trips To Wisconsin To Support Governor Scott Walker
Indeed, Koch has spent millions through the Republic Governors Association, through a network of attack-ad airing front groups, and financed a set of local Wisconsin think tanks to show support for Walker.
Now, it appears, Koch is spending money even in Illinois to help save Walker. Americans for Prosperity, a group founded by the Koch brothers, is advertising bus trips with free food for Illinois residents who commit to traveling to Wisconsin to help Walker:
The buses leave from Chicago, Homer Glen, and Palatine on June 2nd just days before the Wisconsin recall election.
He's got 8 days left.
(I have no idea why they call me, but I have fun with it.)
food, transportation and a place to stay.
Take the free trip but then work for the recall instead.
And then get a free ride back.
Not sure I could handle riding for hours on a bus full of Koch-heads anyway.
Sounds unbearable now that I think of it.
And they are buying it for walker...they will stop at nothing!
here were complaining about the Dems having people brought in from IL to vote illegally...the repubs have this great propensity to self-project...I wonder how many of these paid "helpers" will be voting and intimidating voters?
On edit: this is right on the IL / WI border.
If I can get 3 DUers who will ride the bus from Palatine to Milwaukee (or nearby), I'll pick you up and return you to Palatine.
Eat their food, collect their flyers/signs, I'll pick you up and return you to P'ville where we'll recycle their paper.
PM me if you're interested!
riding on a bus full of republicans would make me seriously ill.
i wonder what a couple of hundred republicans are going to do in one day in wisconsin?
A friend of mine got a temp job during the 2010 election that she didn't realize was working for the Republican candidate in her area. She left after the first day.
Democrats should put observers at the polls in Wisconsin on election day.
The Koch Roaches are truly rotten evil scumbags and they can't continue to get away with this. What we're seeing in Wisconsin with Walker is just the tip of the iceberg. If it's a close election between Romney and Obama - expect the coming results will dwarf Bush V. Gore.
