Anti-Walker Poster (Blue Painter’s Tape)

March 7, 2011 3 comments

This poster was a stunned reaction to the Walker Administration’s claim that it was going to cost taxpayers 7.5 MILLION to remove the low-tack Blue Painter’s Tape that held up the protest posters within the Capitol. After a public ridiculing of the quoted amount, it was quickly lowered, a day later, to as estimate of $350 thousand (which still feels like a gross exaggeration). This administration is not very good at reporting fiscal amounts…they just throw any ridiculous figure out there that the press will bite on.
