“Who does our governor truly serve? Scott Walker answered that question seven years ago today,” said Flynn. “We all saw how Walker jumped at the opportunity to talk to wealthy GOP donor David Koch.”

He gives them our tax dollars through the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. Corruption in Wisconsin is at an historic high.”
