I was glad to see on Tuesday in the article "Board dismisses capital request: The WEDC asked the state's pension plan manager for $200 million" that the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. failed to raid the Wisconsin pension fund.

Former Gov. Tommy Thompson made a similar move years ago, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled the money had to be repaid.

This should be a notice to Gov. Scott Walker and others to keep their hands off the state retirement system. I find this raid attempt disgusting.

I agree 100% Some years ago Tommy Tompson stoled money from the DOT. That is some of the reason we have bad roads here!
