Wisconsin Governor Selling State Power Plants to the Kochs?

One overlooked aspect of the ruckus in Wisconsin is that Governor Scott Walker's budget proposal allows him to sell off the state's power plants with no bids. And right as the pro-worker protests picked up steam, reporters noticed Koch Industries opening an office in downtown Madison, WI. Coincidence? Maybe. But maybe not -- there's already a wave of speculation brewing that Scott Walker is looking to sell off his power plants to the GOP's most notable corporate benefactors. Whether there's truth to the rumor remains to be seen -- but some major energy corporation has already posted a want ad for a plant manager in Madison, and some of the smart money is betting it's Koch.
