Ignoring the Democrats’ central role
Zach Wisniewski, in response to Governor Scott Walker’s claims Tuesday night that jobs are his priority, attacks the governor for the 113 people laid off at the Golden Guernsey plant in Waukesha. Of course, that conveniently ignores the role of US Attorney General Eric Holder in the plant’s shut down. Holder (along with Wisconsin AG JB Van Hollen) sued Dean Foods and forced the sale of the plant to a buyer completely inexperienced in the milk industry. Holder’s Justice Department even handpicked the buyer.
It was former Senator Russ Feingold (Dem) who brought Dean Foods to the attention of the Justice Department and made Dean Foods a target for the lawsuit.
