A Secret Deal Between Gov. Walker And Koch Brothers Buried In State Budget?

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2011/02/22/a-secret-deal-between-gov-walker-and-koch-brothers-buried-in-state-budget/

Everyone enjoys a good conspiracy theory.

Of course, we rarely get to find out whether the theory has any truth or is nothing more than a fanciful narrative created by someone with too much time on their hands.

But now, there is a conspiracy theory coming out of the fiasco in Wisconsin that may tell us everything we ever needed to know about Governor Scott Walker – and the cool part is that it comes with a verifiable ending.

Check out Section 44.16.896 of Wisconsin Senate Bill 11, which reads–

(1) Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state−owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b).

1. I've been aware of that from the beginning.

And somehow, I always knew it was aimed at the Kochs.

Note the interesting words with or without solicitation of bids!

Aw the damn things are just too expensive to run. Let's sell them to the Kochs for $1 and let them charge us what they need to to make a little profit.
