Scott Walker's Fundraising Pitch: 'Big Labor Bosses' Are Trying To 'Barge And Bully' Into Wisconsin
WASHINGTON -- "Big Union-sponsored mercenaries." "Bare-knuckle union attacks." "Strong-arm tactics."
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) most recent fundraising letter to solicit donations for a potential recall election minces no words in going after his Democratic and union opponents. The four-page letter uses a variation of "Big Labor Bosses" 14 times. It also calls out other classic bogeymen for the right: the "Moveon.org Radicals," "Liberal Billionaire George Soros' attack organizations," "President Obama's Political Machine" and the "Ultra Left-Wing Elites from Hollywood and Manhattan.
" These menacing forces are all coming together to, according to the letter, carry out a "naked power grab" in Wisconsin.
"Mark my words," reads the letter, "if they barge and bully and get there [sic] way here, your state's next...so, together, we must fight them tooth and nail right here and right now."
