Walker's Casino Peepshow


Late last week, area legislators who can't stand to be in the same room found themselves in agreement on one issue:

The Kenosha casino project.

With Racine leading the state in unemployment and SE Wisconsin lagging behind in construction jobs - their message was clear:

Build the fucking casino already!

Scotty says he needs time to research the overall jobs impact. He's researching the impact alright - the impact to his campaign contributions.

Supports say the casino will create around 5,000 direct and indirect jobs, but Walker says his meditation on the subject could take "months."

You see, Scooter isn't one of those newfangled strippers who just show you their ass - Walker is more of an old-timey burlesque girl - a little "T" for you, Potawatomi, and then a little "A" for you, Menominee - make your checks out to Friends of Scott Walker, boys.

In the mean time, casino legislation in Illinois quietly ensures the Menominee with a solid back up plan should Wisconsin let them down.
