Koch Brothers Also Violated Wisconsin Law When They Sent Threatening Letter to Wisconsin Workers

Wisconsin Statute 12.07(3), (with a penalty of jail time), clearly states that employers can't distribute printed materials to employees threatening their employment:

No employer or agent of an employer may distribute to any employee printed matter containing any threat, notice or information that if a particular ticket of a political party or organization or candidate is elected or any referendum question is adopted or rejected, work in the employer's place or establishment will cease, in whole or in part, or the place or establishment will be closed, or the salaries or wages of the employees will be reduced, or other threats intended to influence the political opinions or actions of the employees.

Yet, that is just what the Koch brothers did when they sent a to their working in Wisconsin saying they would "suffer the consequences" if they voted for Obama. 

Ironically, the Koch brothers have seen their net worth nearly double under Obama.  According to , when Obama was elected in 2008, each brother was worth a skimpy 19 billion... but now they are each worth 31 billion and are tied for fourth richest person in America. 

Consequences, indeed.
