Jeez, for months I have been calling this race for Walker. Now I am not so sure. He has claimed all along that it was never about busting the unions. Turns out the he has been lying all along. The fight for the Governor's mansion in Wisconsin has turned out to be a case of some very wealthy people buying influence in Wisconsin's government. Walker has just been caught with his pants down.Filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein that shows Walker telling a supporter that he’d be employing a “divide and conquer” strategy against unions. Walker is, of course, fighting for his seat precisely because of his now infamous bill stripping public sector unions of collective bargaining rights. Not long after this video was shot, he claimed otherwise in a Madison, Wisc. speech, and has ever since.
Worse than being caught in a lie, perhaps, is that Walker has been shown, once again, getting buddy-buddy with a billionaire. That supporter in the film just happens to be Forbes 400 rich list member Diane Hendricks of ABC Supply, who later donated $500,000 to Walker’s campaign — the biggest check in the state’s history for a governor’s race.
I am still not calling this as a loss for Walker, but I am not going to call it a win for him either, as I have been calling it up until now. This election could go either way. The bomb dropped by filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein is going to hurt Walker in a huge way, but will it be enough to unseat him? Stay tuned. Walker's recall election is only 3 weeks away now.
