Walker outsources and Capitol Suffers

Postby david cohen » Sat Dec 22, 2012 2:27 pm

So Scotty hires a private firm to do janitorial work in state buildings and they destroy the marble flooring in OUR Capitol. Gee, those unionized workers were at least competent janitorally!

So he can't run a job creation agency or a janitorial service...maybe Walker should just run.

There's got to be a way to tie this back to the recall protests. All those hippies weakened the marble somehow or other and this poor humble mom and pop local business job creating patriot takes the fall for it.

Well who knows if it's even a local business? To get the contract for the Capitol and other state office buildings, you probably have to be a pretty good sized operation. But hell, Walker would know about outsourcing jobs now, wouldn't he? After all, he outsourced Milwaukee County Sheriff jobs at the jail to some private firm out of Florida who employed felons in the jail. I suppose in this case, they'll say that Walker wasn't aware of who was contracted to clean the Capitol- after all, he's the Governor and spends very little time IN the Capitol due to his "heavy travel schedule" to Kochland.

Repairing damage to the capitol always costs $7 million dollars. We established that earlier.
