In Wisconsin, union touts ‘We are winning!’
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s stunningly easy victory in a recall challenge that was sparked by his efforts to rein in spending and restore a fiscal balance to his state last night left public employee union backers bitter.
“Someone from the NRA should shoot Scott Walker in the head, GTA-style,” said a twitter statement quoted by Fox News, a statement now being perused by law enforcement authorities.
But an emailed statement from Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, whose affiliates lost influence badly with the success of Walker’s state program and affirmation in office, had another perspective.
