Wisconsin corruption.

What? Crooked Republican? You don't say.

It's just all so common these days, and no one investigates, and most politicians don't even think of it as corruption.

Read it and weep, friends:

Just in his mid-20s, Brian Deschane has no college degree, very little management experience and two drunken-driving convictions.

Yet he has landed an $81,500-per-year job in Gov. Scott Walker's administration overseeing environmental and regulatory matters and dozens of employees at the Department of Commerce. Even though Walker says the state is broke and public employees are overpaid, Deschane already has earned a promotion and a 26% pay raise in just two months with the state.

How did Deschane score his plum assignment with the Walker team?

It's all in the family.

His father is Jerry Deschane, executive vice president and longtime lobbyist for the Madison-basedWisconsin Builders Association, which bet big on Walker during last year's governor's race.

Whole Story: CLICK

He must be doing a great job. Probably sacking people, and "overlooking" all the environmental and regulatory matters he possibly can. Sadly not surprising. It's probably happening on the Democratic side of politics as well.

Does this surprise anyone? How do the voters of Wisconsin put up with this governor.

I hope the people head back to the streets over this one. It is important to keep yelling.

And now finding some "lost" ballots 2 days after the supreme court recall election -- and just the right amount in favor of the conservative candidate to avoid a recount !!!
