Scott Walker - Drunken Fool

By Jeff Simpson


We know the Republicans in the legislature like to get drunk and legislate:


Now we see that comes directly from leadership.  As Scott Walker, the former(now missing) Governor of Wisconsin, is collecting his salary of Approximately $150,000/yr plus Cadillac Benefits, all he does is fly around the country and drink all day. 

Here are some pics:

Here is your homework for next week.  I want you to just not show up at work, and travel anywhere you feel like it and post pictures on your facebook all day of you drinking.

 How long will you have a job?

  1. I don't mind that the Guv has a few pops at a place most people would, and I'd change the headline to "drinking on the job" (because we are still paying this guy's salary.

    I do notice that he's driking crappy corporate macrobrew in all these pics, instead of helping out real job creators at small breweries who are realizing the American Dream. Somehow that seems fitting, given Walker's economic policies

    1. Excellent point about Scooter's choice of beer.

  2. I can see why he needs to drink (and I suspect do pharmaceuticals). For all the evil and hurt he has unleashed, he would have to drown his conscience to live with himself.

  3. Being drunk would explain a lot of things.

    1. Explain them? Maybe. Excuse them? Never!

    1. Hey look! It's a member of the payroll!

      Seriously, how lousy do you have to.be at your job to get put on weekend duty from the Kochs? Probably as bad as Walker is as a presidential candidate.

  5. I see mom has paid the electric bill so Dunstan can troll from his basement room. Put some pants on, damnit.

  6. I'm sure he'd be able to exempt himself, but there is a state law on this:
    WI Statutes 230.34(1)(am):
    If an employee fails to report for work as scheduled or to contact his or her supervisor, the appointing authority may discipline the employee. If an employee fails to report for work as scheduled, or to contact his or her supervisor for a minimum of 5 consecutive working days, the appointing authority shall consider the employee's position abandoned and may discipline the employee or treat the employee as having resigned his or her position. If the appointing authority decides to treat the position abandonment as a resignation, the appointing authority shall notify the employee in writing that the employee is being treated as having effectively resigned as of the end of the last day worked.

    Might be fun for somebody to file a complaint (not sure if OSER or GAB?) and see where this goes.

    1. Unfortunately this does not apply to elected officials who as it turns out have absolutely NO RESPONSIBILITY to even show up for work. We fought that battle here over (Two Job) Bob Ziegelbauer who was also Manitowoc County exec while also holding the 25th Assembly seat as well as going on extended out of state vacations. He was rarely in his office at county and only for minimal voting in Madison. He could have gone on permanent vacation and still collected both salaries.

    2. Is there any way to fight this battle, knowing we'll lose, and still cause embarrassment (etc.) for Walker? Did Ziegelbauer at least have to formally respond somehow to acknowledge his absenteeism and assert that he was exempt?

  7. I once worked for a guy who used to try to explain what he wanted for a software mod while drinking can after can of beer in the office. One day I simply asked him how he can work on projects like that while drinking so much. His answer was, "Its more challenging that way!". Its a real talent for those with the stamina....

  8. So now Jake from the loosing party is attacking union companies? I'd be willing to bet that MillerCoors pays better and has far superior benefits than any micro brewery in Wis. WDS at it's best.

    1. I'd be willing to bet otherwise, Bagger Boy. And way to use the "Koch is a major employer" argument to try to justify how the big brewers still put out an inferior product.

      There's a reason why real.job creators like the Careys in New Glarus are Dems, but corporates like Miller coots give money to GOPS to protect their market share

  9. "Loosing" party?

    This is what happens when you cut education funding.
