Some recent articles if you haven't seen them:

1) "Unfortunately, the U.S. Chamber, in a report released at the event, didn’t share Walker’s enthusiasm.

Its annual scorecard on state economies ranked Wisconsin 44th for overall economic performance and 50th — as in dead last — for short-term job growth as measured between September 2010 and November 2012. It also has Wisconsin 39th in “business climate” — on par with the state’s ranking under Gov. Jim Doyle."

2) "Badger football tickets, booze and iTunes gift card purchases made with taxpayer dollars.

That’s what Mike Tate, chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, said first caught his attention after reading an anything-but-flattering audit on Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s hand-crafted, job-creating, quasi-private agency, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp."

To be fair, on at least the iTunes gift cards there might be a legitimate reason. It is relatively difficult to do authorized iOS App purchases on a very small scale. If they are using iPhones or iPads for legitimate work purposes it's often easier to use funding to buy a gift card to make the App purchases that may be needed without providing an individual user with a credit card, etc.

The season tickets and booze, well, no idea on those...
