So put your beverage down now before reading any further.
Now that you put your beverage down, here is the email (emphasis mine):
Friend -I am not aware of any unions that are gung ho about Mary Burke. Heck, I don't know many people outside of Democratic Party officials that are very gung ho about Burke. But that is by far not the most ironic part.
The Clinton machine has turned its focus on Wisconsin.
Just yesterday, it was reported that a super PAC lead by members of the Clinton inner-circle will be joining the big-government Union Bosses and Russ Feingold’s special interest group by spending millions to distort Governor Walker’s positive record of job creation and reform.
We’ve already started seeing false attacks start to appear online and we need your help to counter these slanderous claims. Unfortunately, building an online presence is expensive. Even the smallest donation can make a big difference.
A contribution of $25 can provide the campaign with:
Over 5,000 online advertising impressions,
50 hours of web server time,
or 1,000 email sends
Will you join the fight by contributing $25 to help us increase our online presence and show the Clinton machine, the government union bosses, or any other liberal special interest group that they cannot buy Wisconsin?
Governor Walker continues to move Wisconsin forward, but he can’t do it alone. The out-of-state special interests will not rest until they once again control the state. Mary Burke knows she has the support of these big-government groups and is planning on adding $5 million of her personal fortune to assist them.
The only interests Governor Walker cares about are those of the people of Wisconsin. Thank you for your support.
Note the parts that I have emphasized:
Governor Walker continues to move Wisconsin forward, but he can’t do it alone. The out-of-state special interests will not rest until they once again control the state.Apparently we are supposed to ignore that the majority of his support - both legal and illegal - have come from the Koch Brothers, the Bradley Foundation and numerous other corporate special interests.
The only interests Governor Walker cares about are those of the people of Wisconsin.
As outrageous as those statements are, the frightening part is that there are actually people that believe that garbage.
