Wasteful Government Spending ALERT: Taxpayer funded Viagra for teachers

Wasteful Government Spending ALERT: Taxpayer funded Viagra for teachers—Legislator uses state funds for legal fees after breaking the law

When I kicked off my campaign I pledged to transform the lieutenant governor's office into the leading taxpayer watchdog in the state with the chief mission of rooting out waste, fraud and abuse.  But I’m not waiting until I’m elected to continue our fight to expose wasteful spending. 

Just this week I wrote a letter to State Senator Mark Miller, a member of the Democratic leadership team, asking him to reimburse taxpayers for the legal fees incurred from his failure to comply with an open records request.  This lawsuit was totally avoidable and taxpayers should not foot the bill.  The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel picked up on my letter and I am hopeful that public pressure will continue to build and force Senator Miller to reimburse the state.

I also publically denounced the Milwaukee teachers’ union for attempting to get taxpayer funded Viagra for union members.  The teachers’ union is completely out of control.  The majority of 10th graders educated in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system cannot read or do math at proficient levels, teachers are being laid off, the district’s finances are a mess, and the union is fighting for taxpayer funded vacations and for an erectile dysfunction drug.

Complete Democrat control in Madison has created bloated government that is packed full of extravagant government programs.  I am running for Lieutenant Governor because I want to transform the office into the top taxpayer watchdog in the state with the focus of eliminating this type of wasteful spending.  If you agree with me that the lieutenant governor should serve as a taxpayer watchdog,please click here to make a donation to my campaign.

Please donate today and help me put the office of lieutenant governor to work for taxpayers.  It’s time Wisconsin citizens received a return on their investment in this office.
