In case you missed it, the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was pranked by a blogger who called pretending to be right-wing billionaire David Koch, the Governor’s primary funder. Walker describes his entire strategy for breaking the union. This is the Governor who won’t take phone calls from Democratic Senators.
Among other things, Koch suggests hiring goons to infiltrate the protesters and cause trouble to discredit them. Walker: “We thought about that.” He rejects the idea, not because its wrong, but because he decided it might backfire.
