Spencer Black and David Newby: Koch Money Behind Scott Walker (Video)
Tuesday 22 February 2011
"Wisconsin has a proud tradition in terms of labor, the environment, of people standing up to the power and money of big corporations," says Spencer Black, former chair of the Wisconsin State Assembly Natural Resources Committee. And those big corporations don't like that tradition one bit. The Bradley Foundation, a right-wing organization with connections with the billionaire Koch brothers, has poured money into Walker's anti-union, anti-worker campaign, and they're not stopping with union busting.
Spencer and David Newby, former president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO, join Laura in Madison to discuss the big business backers behind Walker's campaigns not just to gut workers' rights, but to rig the next election.
