State Senator Glenn Grothman wants to end the requirement that campaign contributors disclose the name of their employers.
In the state of Wisconsin if you give a politician over $100, you have to give up that information. The practice was originally designed to provide information regarding the type of people supporting different candidates. “Extreme union groups like the police union, the fireman union and many local teachers unions are using these campaign finance reports to punish any employer who hires somebody who gives money to a Republican candidate.”
Punish, Grothman says, in the form of boycotting businesses in the state. He says donors should not have to disclose the name of their place of employment. “Right; we must put an end to this hysterical anti business activity being done by the state public employee unions.”
Grothman says just as a citizen’s vote is private, a donor should not have to divulge the name of his employer. He says “there are some narrow-minded and mean-spirited members of Wisconsin’s Totalitarian Left that will do all they can to destroy those who disagree with them.”
He’s currently looking for cosponsors to his proposal.
