Meet the greedy billionaires who bought Scott Walker

One Wisconsin Now put up a terrific Pinterest page with photos of all the sociopath billionaires who are buying Wisconsin job-killer Gov. Scott Walker.

You gotta see it. (Click here.)

These charming people are writing large checks to Walker so he'll turn Wisconsin into a feudal serfdom. He's already caused real per capita income in Wisconsin to fall 2.2 percent behind Minnesota, a state remarkably similar to Wisconsin except it doesn't have a governor trying to destroy it.

Here are a few of the folks who own Scotty:

  • JOHN CHILDS. Nicknamed "the Republican ATM," Massachusetts billionaire John W. Childs deposited $100,000 to Gov. Scott Walker's campaign account. In 2003 Mr. Childs admitted to violating campaign finance rules during the 2002 Mass. gubernatorial race.
  • SHELDON ADELSON. Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson dealt Gov. Scott Walker $250,000 on March 30. In 2012 "Adelson told Forbes Magazine that as long very wealthy people could buy elections, "I’m going to do it.
  • DIANE HENDRICKS. Gov. Scott Walker was caught on camera telling Beloit billionaire Diane Hendricks his strategy was to "Divide and Conquer" WI workers. A year later, she wrote Gov. Walker a $500,000 check on the same day Gov. Walker's campaign moved money over to this criminal defense fund.
Read about all of them. You may want to wait until you're about to take a shower, though.
