Jon Richards: Scott Walker: The "Divide and Conquer" Governor
A video recently went viral of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker telling a billionaire donor in January 2011 that he planned to employ a "divide and conquer" strategy to take away working peoples' rights -- a move that ultimately sparked historic protests and led to the upcoming June 5 recall election that close to one million voters demanded.
It was a rare, unguarded moment of Walker coming clean to a building supply magnate about his scheme to divide the state. She later gave Walker's campaign the largest contribution to a governor in state history.
