Divide and Conquer!!

A new video is out with Scott Walker talking to one of his masters, The widow Diane Hendricks, who has given at least $510,000 to the Walker campaign/defense fund!


This video is shot BEFORE  he dropped the bomb on the people of Wisconsin with ACT10.  So he knew what he was doing all the time(He just forgot to tell us).

JSOnline is breaking this story and clip by Documentary filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein.

In the video, Hendricks told Walker she wanted to discuss "controversial" subjects away from reporters, asking him:
"Any chance we'll ever get to be a completely red state and work on these unions -"
"Oh, yeah," Walker broke in.
"- and become a right-to-work?" Hendricks continued. "What can we do to help you?"
"Well, we're going to start in a couple weeks with our budget adjustment bill," Walker said. "The first step is we're going to deal with collective bargaining for all public employee unions, because you use divide and conquer. So for us, the base we get for that is the fact that we've got - budgetarily we can't afford not to. If we have collective bargaining agreements in place, there's no way not only the state but local governments can balance things out . . . That opens the door once we do that. That's your bigger problem right there."

Of course Scott Walker has let it be known in no uncertain terms that he does not support right to work legislation, at least in public.  

Walker co-sponsored right-to-work legislation in 1993 as a freshman in the state Assembly but as governor has consistently downplayed seeking any restrictions on private unions in public statements.
"From our standpoint, it's never going to get to me," Walker said of right-to-work legislation in an interview with the Journal Sentinel on April 27. "Private sector unions are my partner in economic development."
Of course to someone as money hungry as Scott Walker is $510,000 + speaks volumes!  

This clip comes from the documentary "As Goes Janesville""

Lichtenstein is now promoting his finished documentary, "As Goes Janesville," which is expected to be shown at film festivals and on PBS stations this fall. Lichtenstein was preparing to film a Rock County 5.0 meeting that Walker was to attend when Hendricks said she was going to greet Walker personally when he came in. Lichtenstein said he asked to join her and she agreed.
On Thursday, Barrett said Walker's exchange with Hendricks shows the governor will say one thing to the public and another to his top-tier donors.

I think this documentary will be a very popular one in the upcoming weeks in WI.

Its could be an even bigger catch than this one:
