Walker Administration Accidentally Admits It Endangered the Public to Protect Gov.Walker

Share

Wisconsin’s Capitol has been on TSA-style lockdown since apparently Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the GOP majority decided images of thousands of middle-class Wisconsinites flooding the Capitol to protest the attack on workers’ rights didn’t make for good press.

Well today, the fire department issued multiple citations citing numerous fire code violations, including ”locked exit doors and inadequate signs pointing toward working exits.” In defending her boss, a Walker administration official accidentally admitted they endangered the public to protect the safety of the king Governor:

The Madison Fire Department issued fire code citations Wednesday after finding violations at the state Capitol, including locked exit doors and inadequate signs pointing toward working exits.

The state Department of Administration has cited safety as a reason for restricting access to only a few entrances in the building.

This is what aristocracy looks like.
