    Get in line to get your money. Here’s how it works.

    (Dateline, Wisconsin)
    Last week, (it was) reported that a small GOP lobby shop tied to the Tea Party and David Koch’s Americans for Prosperity group was awarded a $500,000 grant in a backdoor, sweetheart deal cooked up by ALEC leadership in the State Legislature and sanctioned by the Walker administration.

    The United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation was the only applicant for a newly-created grant to promote hunting, fishing, and trapping in the state, despite the organization having no record in outdoors training. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the grant was slipped into the budget bill by outgoing Majority Leader Scott Suder with terms that excluded most sporting groups in the state. The grant was not properly advertised, conveniently leaving United Sportsmen as the sole applicant.

    The United Sportsmen representative couldn’t be bothered to show up at last week’s committee hearing (joining by phone) and couldn’t answer basic questions, prompting one committee member to say that the “whole deal just doesn’t smell right.” One Wisconsin Now uncovered a loophole in the bill regarding the group’s tax status and later United Sportsmen apologized for misleading legislators into thinking it was a tax-exempt charity.
