Walker Returns $50,000 in Jack Links-Related Contributions with $75,000 in Taxpayer Dollars

Business Contributed Heavily to Republican Governors Association, Which Spent
$5 Million to Elect Walker


Madison Gov. Scott Walker has announced a $75,000 taxpayer-financed grant to a company,
who along with its Chief Executive Officer, donated nearly $50,000 in 2010 to the Republican
Governors Association, which spent $5 million to elect Walker governor, according to a figures
obtained from the Internal Revenue Service by One Wisconsin Now. Walker announced the
taxpayer-financed grant to the company, Jack Links, Tuesday in a press release.

Once again, Wisconsin taxpayers are footing Gov. Walkers handouts to special interest
campaign contributors, said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. From
taxpayer-financed tax breaks to high-paying jobs for the unqualified kids of industry donors,
Walker is running a scheme would make Boss Hogg blush.

One Wisconsin Nows review of the Republican Governors Association showed $36,740 in
contributions and in-kind costs donated by Jack Links of Minong and a $10,000 personal
contribution from CEO Jack Link between April and July 2010. Two additional in-kind
contributions totaling $1,304 were made in November 2010.

Gov. Walker wants to cut over $800 million from public schools and hike prescription drug
costs for seniors, said Ross. Hes cutting from our schools and our seniors so he can give
$75,000 of our money to a company that dumped $50,000 into the Republican Governors
Associations $5 million election-year smear campaign.
