Scott Walker Gives $81,500 Government Job To Top Donor’s 26-Year-Old College Dropout Son

I’m sure he’s doing a heckuva job:

Since taking office in January, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has stripped public workers of their collective bargaining rights, proposed wage cuts to local government employees, and insisted that his “state is broke” and that its public workers are overpaid. But Walker applies a different standard to himself.

Today, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reveals that Walker is using state funds to pay more than $81,500 a year to the 26-year-old son of a major campaign donor with no college degree and two drunken-driving convictions.

Despite having almost no management experience, UW Madison college dropout Brian Deschane now oversees state environmental and regulatory issues and manages dozens of Commerce Department employees. After only two months on the job, Deschane has already received a 26 percent pay raise and a promotion.

  1. “Deschane has already received a 26 percent pay raise and a promotion” …. wow, sounds like he’s really good at the job! 🙂

    1. it IS election day here in Wisconsin…perhaps some of my fellow citizens will roll their behinds to a polling place and make a statement.

      p.s. fuck you, scott walker.

  2. Hell, it’s only environmental oversight and regulation – the position’s only there as a sop to the environmentalist lobby, it’s not like it’s a necessary job. Shit, anyone ‘competent’ would likely do more harm than good, right? Stop industrialists using untested metals in railroads and stuff, for example. So if you’re going to have the position, might as well make good use of it.

    1. Yes, Rick Scott want us taxpayers to pay for state employees to be drug tested 4 quarterly. But don’t worry, we can get a discount by using the drug company his wife owns!
