March 16, 2011- On Wednesday evening, Republican state legislators from Wisconsin will gather at the offices of prominent DC lobbying firm BGR Group for a high-dollar fundraiser.
If they hoped that escaping Madison and the labor protests that continue there even after Gov. Scott Walker (R) decisively won the latest round of the bout over collective bargaining, labor progressive groups aim to make it clear they were mistaken.
As the Republicans arrive at BGR for the fundraising event this evening, they'll be met by a coalition of left-wing activists who'll bring the frustration over Wisconsin to them.
From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
Among the 11 organizations sponsoring the protest are MoveOn.org, People for the American Way, Code Pink, Common Cause and the Public Campaign Action Fund.
Other sponsors include AFSCME, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and the Center for Media and Democracy.
