Swift Bike Republicans File Complaint On Trek


The amazing, Ruth Conniff, at The Progressive magazine called Scott Walker's weird attack on Trek Bicycle Company - "swift-biking." Ruth sure did nail it.

The "swift-biking" became laughably weirder yesterday, when the state GOP party filed a complaint with the GAB, alleging John Burke's full page ad (defending his family's company) amounted to a illegal campaign contribution.

They say John Burke and his sister, candidate for Governor, Mary Burke, coordinated illegally to place the ad in the Journal Sentinel. Yes, you heard that right - illegal coordination.

The same people who tried to stop the John Doe investigation because their right to coordinate with charitable organizations was an infringement of free speech. Free speech for me and not thee?

This is either sheer stupidity or desperation.
