Ladwig Dines on AFSCME Endorsement While Workers Protest Outside

It must be opposite day 'cause there ain't no other way to explain this. Reports are that Jim Ladwig, candidate for County Executive, has been awarded an endorsement from AFSCME Council 40 (which includes the Racine DPW). Congratulations to him. However, it makes one wonder if union officials truly understand that while they were deliberating, Mr. Ladwig was a featured speaker at the Racine County GOP Lincoln Dinner and their members were outside protesting.

Can we just say that local members are pissed and not being quiet about it at all. Seems like the statewide recall efforts won't be the only elected officials to be revisited by voters.
