I know exactly what's going on. I posted the link to Barrett's campaign donors.

Post proof that the police unions throughout WI supported Walker.

All of them? No, but some certainly did


YouTube - Scott Walker Ad: "Seconds"

From Walker's campaign site on the State Troopers

Quote:
Madison, WI: The Wisconsin Troopers’ Association (WTA) is pleased to announce their endorsement of Scott Walker in Wisconsin’s upcoming gubernatorial election. The troopers, inspectors and police communication operators that make up the statewide Troopers’ Association cited Walker’s leadership and commitment to public safety as key reasons for his endorsement.

Mr. Walker has stated publicly that as Governor, he will not furlough public safety workers to balance the state budget, stating the he will protect the services those employees provide.

"Walker didnít get the endorsements of two statewide unions, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association and the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, which both backed Barrett."

It was a very small minority. Everyone except the libs seems to know that.

Now THIS is hilarious;

If the numbers hold for Prosser, this is likely the end of the "awakening" of the great sleeping unions beast.

In truth, it was Wisconsin's government employee unions, whose privileges are endangered by Gov. Walker's reforms, that built the election up as a referendum, aided by their allies in the Democratic Party, the media and the liberal left. Assuming that Prosser has indeed won, this is a crushing defeat for them.

The State Troopers Union backed him, the Police and Firefighter Unions were a mixed bag with some supporting Walker and some not. When it comes down to it, the groups that either supported Walker or tended to be a mixed bag were exempt, the Unions that were against Walker were targeted. He made it out to be all about the budget, yet the higher paid ones, those with the highest pensions were exempt.

Landslide! - WSJ.com
Prosser was expected to cruise to reelection, even with Union involvement the conservative groups still outspent the liberal ones by 37%, yet Prosser barely eeks out a victory of .49% if that holds.
