Dan Bice: Sen. Randy Hopper's girlfriend gets publically funded state job at $20.35 per hour

Nice work if you can find it.

Republican political operative and Sen. Randy Hopper (R-Fond du Lac) girlfriend, Valerie Cass, scored a nice tax payer-funded job last month for political services rendered.

Dan Bice at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has an excellent account of a corrupt political arrangement that smells even by the Scott Walker-Randy Hopper standards of misconduct.

An excerpt from Bice's column:
Even though the state is supposedly broke, top officials in Gov. Scott Walker's team were able to scrape together enough money to give a state job to the woman identified as Sen. Randy Hopper's girlfriend.

Anything for a political ally.

Valerie Cass, a former Republican legislative staffer, was hired Feb. 7 as a communications specialist with the state Department of Regulation and Licensing. She is being paid $20.35 per hour. The job is considered a temporary post.

Recall of Sen. Randy Hopper Burning Up East-Central Wisc District 18

via malThe recall of Sen. Randy Hopper (R-Fond du Lac) is on fire.

The number of hard-to-challenge signatures gathered in Wisconsin Senate District 18 in Fondy alone is already well into the 1,000s. District needs 20,000 sigs to be safe from the challenges of the GOP high-priced lawyers.

Working-class families are going to be hit hard by the budget and the so-called budget repair bill that actually target working families while rewarding very rich GOP campaign contributors.

The whole area around Fondy is hard-drinking, blue collar territory and not terribly political.

But messing with some one's family does not sit well with anyone. That's what Sen. Hopper and Scott Walker are doing.

Hopper is going along for the ride and the SOB deserves what he gets.
