Asked for a reaction, Brian Fraley, communications director at the MacIver Institute, a Wisconsin-based conservative organization that uncovered the letter, did not mince words: “This letter is physical proof of what many in Wisconsin have long speculated: That big labor is incredibly worried about citizens here finding out that the reforms are working.”
Gov. Walker’s spokesman Cullen Werwier added, “The latest letter from public sector union bosses shows clearly that Democrats and their allies put their politics before everything else, even their own members’ jobs. The letter clearly shows how they will put politics before people.”
Wisconsin Democratic Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski declined to comment to TAS on the story, noting he had limited information about the letter as of Wednesday afternoon.
