    not a chance.

    politically speaking, I never know what the idiot left will think of anything, but from a legal standpoint, this goes nowhere

    And they decided not to do it. Very ethical people will at times have unethical thoughts. Very good people will at times have bad thoughts. Very sane people will at times have insane thoughts. You are not unethical for simply thinking about doing something. Besides, you don't even know the details. It's very possible someone brought it up in passing, and he decided it was not something they would do. I can't imagine there is a politican out there (including the saintly Obama) who has had unethical thoughts. With the power and the access politicans have.

    “I take phone calls all the time.” — Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin)

    He probably should revisit that decision.

    Perhaps in Wisconsin his lack of ethics may eke by the law, but this also could be a federal issue (as per the link I posted earlier). This cracks me up that this guy conservatives were so proud of has just shown himself to be a corporate shill with no ethical standards at all.

    So, you have a far left guy that is researching to determine if a complaint shuld even be filed. In the meantime, Walker was trying to get the bill passed long before this conversation took place and a supposed favor was even offered. And coordination? How were they coordinating again? Walker was talking to someone and telling him how things were going. Anyway, good luck.

    you can feign your outrage with someone else, I'm not buying the BS.

    the real issue of ethics is the teachers faking sickness and the Dr's handing out notes. not to mention law makers fleeing their constituents.

Only an idiot progressive makes national news of their own intellectual dishonesty...but then again we are speaking of PROGRESSIVE who believes that lying is the same as breathing.

    And what is to explain? The governor talking to a political supporter? Not hardly as funny as the PREZ giving an audience to Richard Trumka at least 3 times a week in the middle of this situation. How many millions of dollars has the Prez taken from Trumka and the other union bosses through this money laundering scheme known as UNION DUES?

    First, the citizen gets taxed, and with those taxes they pay the salary of the Public Service Union members....then that money is turned around and placed directly into the coffers of the Democrat Campaign fund. Same old tactics being used by these mafia types. The people are being cheated to purchase their own votes with the money conned from them in the first place. Look at the Stimulus Bill, 75% of that total went to keep these public servants 100% employed...and with that salary they pay dues...which gets turned into Campaign Contributes and the membership nor the tax payer gets a say as to how their tax dollars are being spent.

    You can tell when the left is losing a battle....they must FAKE something and report it as news. The old tactic of using class warfare will not work this time around as its not some supposed giant evil corporation fat cat the union is attempting to demonize and declare class warfare on....its the PEOPLE who make half as much as these pompous fat cat union members who pay their maffia bosses millions of dollars in CEO salaries. The tables are turned...so they make something up...that is not news in the first place.

    Question, what's wrong with any Governor taking a call from someone he was conned into believing was a political supporter when Prez does the same thing almost every day of the week?

    Ahhhh... yes... the Democrats make a run for the border, not for Taco Bell, but from their job to reverse course of the state running an ocean of Red Ink... and the Dems jerk off about a telephone call from one of their journOlists that reveals nothing other than what is already known.

    Whatever makes your boat float.

    Now you've had your diversion for the day... back to serious business of getting the Ocean of Red under control.

    As Obama stated yesterday:
    That includes the rights of peaceful assembly, free speech, and the ability of... people to determine their own destiny. These are human rights. They are not negotiable. They must be respected in every country. And they cannot be denied through... suppression.
    That applies to the USA, so Democrats... time to go back to work and cast your votes.

    The Dems and their Union buddies on the other hand are all sensitivity, especially after the Arizona Shootings

    Not that their are examples of thuggish Unions having ever behaved this way...

    Even though I'm sure that question was asked sarcastically, I'll answer it anyway. Walker's acceptance of a gift for "Crush[ing] these bastards" is iffy legally, but him asking Koch to fund anti-union ads in other states is definitely coordination.

    Do you support that?
    You just told a big fat lie. Shame on you.
