Verify the Recall as their source.
And who put out this ad, calling teachers out by name and salary? Why the people are anonymous of course.
Scott Walker and his cronies have outdone themselves this time. Their cowardice, attempts to Bully and Intimidate and Divide and Conquer are on display for everyone in Wisconsin to see. When you see the kind of people the Walker brigade are, you realize it is not a pretty sight!
I guess Paul Ryan supports Tom Barrett after all.
Do not worry, we at Cog_Dis will continue investigating until we find the cowards behind this ad!! if you have any information, let us know!
UPDATED: The Janesville Gazette brings us more to this story and a little about who was behind it:
Citizens for Responsible Government, also known as CRG Network, filed a freedom of information request with the School District of Janesville on March 29, said Brett Berg, spokesman for the district. Those figures were used to create the flier, said CRG Executive Administrator Chris Kliesmet.
"The group and its representative, Orville Seymer, filed a freedom of information request for a list of all Janesville district teachers, their job titles and annual salaries," Berg said.
When contacted by The Gazette, Seymer said he knew the names of local participants but was asked not to release them.
"They want to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation," Seymer said. "However, this is all public information."
The flier lists the names and salaries of 321 teachers whose salaries range from $59,344 to $75,695. The district employs 765 teachers; the lowest salary is $34,676.
"We did most of the grunt work at the request of people over there," Kliesmet said. "We did the freedom of information request and gathered the data. People in the area printed the flier and distributed it."
At least Superintendent Karen Schulte stepped up:
Schulte said she was shocked when someone showed her the flier Saturday. She said it was interesting that she saw the flier at Craig High School, where 400 peopleâ€”including teachersâ€”were volunteering to package food to be sent to feed the hungry in Haiti.so while this hate group was distributing anonymous hate fliers over the weekend, the teachers that they are attempting to demonize were busy organizing a food drive for the people of Haiti. Nuff Said
"I think it's wrong to go after any group that has an honest profession," Schulte said. "I don't understand where this intense anger is coming from."
One last thing though, about those exorbitant have's of the Janesville School District:
Only two teachers make more than $74,000. Salaries are based on a salary schedule that awards pay raises for years on the job to a maximum of 17 years and for continuing education up to the doctoral level. Teachers pay out of their own pockets to take the graduate courses. Teachers also receive extra pay for additional duties, such as coaching.765 teachers in the Janesville School District and only 2 make more than $70/k year. The nerve of them...
