ICYMI: Pay-to-Play: GOP Leader Robin Vos Finds New Way to Grub for Lobbyist Cash

Feb 10, 2013

Republican Assembly Leader Robin Vos has found a new way to grub for lobbyist cash, with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporting that Vos imposed a $500 “loyalty tax” on lobbyists in the last election cycle.

“Loyalty is a two-way street and it’s clear that Republicans like Robin Vos will give these special interests a seat at the trough, even while Wisconsin fails at jobs and while our standards in education, health care and living wages drift further downward. Vos and Scott Walker have created a pay-to-play culture in which the needs of our middle class are forgotten,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday.
