Governor Walker: "Wisconsin is broke"

Excerpt: Gov. Scott Walker's message has been clear from the day he took office.

"Wisconsin is broke, and it's time to start paying our bills today so our kids are not stuck with even bigger bills tomorrow," Walker said earlier this year.

But one state agency may not have gotten the message.

The newly created Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. has dropped a little more than $43,000 to buy 73 iPads for everyone on the staff, including secretaries and other support employees.

Excerpt:   Cindy Archer, who abruptly left Scott Walker's administration last month for "personal family matters," actually had another politically appointed job under the governor already lined up.

She'll take a $25,000 pay cut in moving to the Department of Children and Families, but the nearly $100,000 she'll be making is tens of thousands of dollars more than the pay of others who have had the job.  [Emphasis added.]

But then we already knew this.
