That is Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, standing in solidarity with protesters in Madison on Saturday, as a citizen concerned about the future of our state (photo by my sister).
In August of 2009, Barrett took a beating defending a woman and child from an attacker. Tom Barrett could be our governor. Instead the voters of Wisconsin were convinced they needed Scott Walker, based on some empty rhetoric about creating 250,000 jobs by cutting taxes for the rich people he can find the time to take phone calls from.
Where was Governor Walker on Saturday? Up north doing some fine dining with his cheerleaders, while hundreds of thousands of hard working public employees are seeing their rights trampled.
What would Scott Walker have done outside the state fair that night in August? Guess.
