Menards now accepting all your Household Hazardous Waste!
Reporter Michael Isikoff broke the story Monday related the Wrong Way Walker John Doe II probe that Wisconsin's No. 1 Plutocrat John Menard Jr. gave the Wisconsin Club for Growths $1.5 million at the same time the WWWalker campaign was apparently coordinating with the WCFGs to run pro-WWWalker ads during the recall campaign in violation of Badgered State law. By the way that is more than TWICE as much as Gogebic Tachonite gave ($700K) two the Growths in return for the priviledge of rewriting Wisconsin's mining law.
So what did Menards get for their investment in The Great Divider? Up to $1.8 million in special tax credits from the WEDC - WWWalker's Economic Distristribution Corruptication - Gave Big Money at Menards! The richest man in Wisconsin also seems to have gotten a get out of jail free card from the DNR. Scooter don't want nobody to Stepp on his Sugardaddy!
Menards is the most environmentally fined company in Wisconsin. In fact, when John Menard was personnally caught illegally dumping hazardous waste he told then DNR Secretary George Meyer that he didn't believe in environmental regulation and didn't see any need to have the laws on the books. He ultimately paid a $1.7 million dollar fine. You and I would have gone to prison!

So if we shouldn't have environmental laws according Menard, then it stands to reason that John should have no objection to having us all drop off our unwanted household hazardous wastes in his parking lot! Those old spray cans, used oil, old cans of paint, used thinner, pesticides, computer monitors, give'm all to John Menard! After all, he has no problem polluting our political environment for fun and profit.
