Recall War

Barrett Releases New Anti-Walker Ad

Tom Barrett, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's official opponent in his upcoming recall election, is out with a new TV ad Thursday. A fabricated book entitled How to Rip Apart WisconsinBy Scott Walker is displayed across the screen as the narrator flips through the imaginary chapters. "Say no to equal pay for equal work for women. Cut education by the most in state history, and increase the cost of college. Raise taxes on seniors. Watch Wisconsin lose more jobs than any other state—all while giving billions in tax breaks to corporations and the super rich." The narrator concludes: "It's time to close the book—because we can't fix Wisconsin, if we keep Scott Walker."
