The MILF of Doty Street


Rebecca Kleefisch has been traveling around the state holding private, invitation only meetings with business owners for quite a while.

If you were a business owner who heard about her coming to town and tried to get in - you found yourself barred at the door for the meeting, but invited in with the press for the last five minutes for the wrap-up.

So, you got to hear nothing and say nothing.

However if you were a handpicked VIP who got a golden ticket - you got the Lt. Governor's complete attention for an hour or so and the freedom to ask her for anything you might wish without fear of taxpayers or reporters hearing you.

This is just how business is conducted in Wisconsin - the shame is people have pretty much gotten used to it and these closed door meetings don't even make the news anymore.

That is until one of them got recorded.

Turns out that the kind of things these business VIPs ask for when they think no one can hear is pretty fucking amazing. Kleefisch held a special business "roundtable" in Beloit in early December with everyone's favorite Disney villain, Cruella DeVille aka Diane Hendricks and her BFFs from the country club. (Hendricks may be familiar to our dear readers as the woman who has given more cash to the Walker/Kleefisch campaign than any other human being and a $500,000 check in the recall alone.)

So what did the business owners want in order to get Wisconsin workers back on the job?

Business loans that don't necessarily have to be paid back. Higher sales taxes. Helicopter rides and for the state to stop reporting on the amount of taxes they pay (or don't pay - apparently being a billionaire and paying no state income tax creates some harsh feelings among the unemployed).

No one wonder they won't let the press in.

The meeting started off on a more than friendly tone with Kleefisch asking the group, "how can we love you more?" making her sound less like a Lt. Governor and more like a hostess at On The Border.

So, who made the devilish video? What Blue Fist sneaked in disguised in a Thurston Howell yachting hat?

Kleefisch made the video. Doh!

Not only did she video herself performing a governmental lap-dance, she tried to keep it from the press by saying it isn't public record. (In her defense, Kleefisch may just actually believe she gets paid directly by Diane Hendricks and not the people of Wisconsin.)

She said she didn't wish for the video to become a distraction.

Too late!
