No Degree, Little Experience Pay Off Big -- for WI Republican Donor's Son

Have you heard about Walker, Wisconsin Ranger? He's busily busting unions and making sure those awful people who work for the state don't make hardly any money. Except...

Just in his mid-20s, Brian Deschane has no college degree, very little management experience and two drunken-driving convictions.

Have you heard about Walker, Wisconsin Ranger? He's busily busting unions and making sure those awful people who work for the state don't make hardly any money. Except...

Just in his mid-20s, Brian Deschane has no college degree, very little management experience and two drunken-driving convictions.

Yet he has landed an $81,500-per-year job in Gov. Scott Walker's administration overseeing environmental and regulatory matters and dozens of employees at the Department of Commerce. Even though Walker says the state is broke and public employees are overpaid, Deschane already has earned a promotion and a 26% pay raise in just two months with the state.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has the rest of the story.

Of course, here in Florida, this wouldn't be news, would it? Our Republicans have been pulling this kind of crap for decades and still manage to con morons into voting for them.

INB4 Pudge claims liberals do it too, provides examples, and completely misses the point of the JE.

That's not easy to do. Very impressive timing sir!

Nah, he'd just point out that it's not hypocrisy when republicans believe people are educated stupid, and people without all that lie-beral ivory tower edumacation are the real smarties and hard workers who deserve the big bucks for doing the hard jobs of leading the state.
