'Business Owner' in Latest Walker Ad Thrived During Doyle Administration

They don't seem flustered by all of this hypocrisy.  Are they taking drugs?  Or is greed alone sufficient to cause them to ignore their own bad faith?

Historically and theologically speaking, greed has the track record.

Remember this guy from the recent ads?

There's more to the story.

'Business Owner' in Latest Walker Ad Thrived During Doyle Administration - One Wisconsin Now

The "business owner" featured in the latest Scott Walker television ad saw his business grow 1,300 percent during the administration of Gov. Jim Doyle, according to a self-professed claim in the Business Times from 2008. The business owner is actually a vice chair at the Milwaukee Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, which donated $400,000 in 2010 to the Republican Governors Association to elect Walker.

"Given this business owner boasted his business revenues grew by 1,300 percent under the pro-growth policies of Gov. Jim Doyle, it seems curious he would support Scott Walker's radical policies which have left us far behind all our neighboring states in job growth," said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. "It must just be the Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce continuing to be a partisan shill for anti-middle class Republicans like Walker."
