    It may say it is an individual donating but they are donating for their corporation since companies cannot directly donate to politicians. Also to the person that said be prepared to not purchase gasoline, I would like to know where you live that you do not have a choice as to where you purchase your fuel. I live in a small town of 5000 and there are alternate fuel stops.

  2. It should be noted that PACUR is owned by newly elected WI U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R).

  3. Oh and I’m Shocked! SHOCKED! That the Republican Party is a major Contributor to Scott Walker! Yes, Let’s boycott them, I’m sure we’ve all given them tons of money…Do you think they feel the hurt of the boycott yet?

  4. Can I just point out that many of the contributors listed above ALSO contributed to Tom Barrett’s Campaign. The big players that can afford to make the huge donations are going to make it to BOTH sides, just to ensure they don’t alienate anybody.

    It’s your right to boycott these companies, but really – Who are you hurting?

    Neherings Sendik’s on Oakland in Shorewood is not a contributor to Scott Walker. Please don’t unnecessarily boycott them.

  6. That’s a very good point, Mike. Thanks for offering insightful advice that will continue to help protesters make an impact.

  7. I also disagree with the whole boycott thing. Hurting hundreds of WI employees of a WI company because their CEO happens to be a rich Republican donor doesn’t make sense. It’s cutting off the nose to spite your face. Makes more sense to contact any you do business with and let them know your displeasure. It worked with Target.

  8. That would be a major feat if La Crosse’s abundance of drunkards would boycott the bar scene. It won’t happen b/c of the perpetuated “alcohol is so cool” mentality of this city, but that act in and of itself would definitely send a message.

  9. Okay, we have a list of major contributors, but I’m not savvy about what they produce or sell. Would someone give more info about these companies and their products/store fronts, please?

  10. I see the Tavern League was a major contributor. If you boycott taverns and stores that belong, Wisconsin should see a huge drop in drunk driving!!! LOL

  11. It’s my right to shop at those business that support the things I believe in. If Ziegler chooses to support Walker that is his right but that doesn’t mean I can’t express my right to let him know that I disagree. And my right to let him know that I will be taking my money elsewhere.

  12. I was just thinking about this belief, a belief that I share with you, earlier today, because this is a largely Democratic belief. The Right generally believe that what is important to them personally is most significant while the opposing beliefs are secondary if not straight up wrong even if it is shared by a majority of the population.

    I have a feeling this is why the Tea Party movement was so strong and successful because there were no restraints in judgment.

  13. I am looking at this as a whole in regard to all the companies listed. Not all that are listed are $5k donations by the CEO – rather the donations come from numerous employees.

    In regard to Kwik Trip, if Ziegler personally chooses to donate to any cause, politician or organization, that is his individual right as a US citizen. It’s not your or my place to elicit judgment on him or pass judgment on a business he has interest in based on his personal beliefs.

    Just as you, I and everyone else tracking this has the right to think and believe in what we want, so does every other US citizen. If you or I do not agree – so be it, but it’s still the right of every US citizen to support whatever effort they deem appropriate.

  14. And the largest single donation by an employee was $5,000 from the CEO Ziegler. He did donate as an individual but he listed Kwik Trip as his employer (and he owns the majority of the privately held company’s stock)

  15. Just boycotting them won’t do it. However there is a form floating around that is a direct memo to the CEO Zeigler (who donated several thousand dollars, just the largest single donation being $5,000) letting him know that you are boycotting Kwik Trip because of his support for Walker. No, a silent boycott will have little or no impact, but a boycott tied to thousands of letters telling him you are boycoting and why will at least show him that those right wing donations have economic impacts.

  16. I would like to point out that this information is based off of “Individual” or “Personal” contributions by people who work for these employers, not the actual employer. That is their right, they are allowed to donate to whom they deem appropriate – that’s why we live in America. Everyone may not agree with individuals and their choices as to who they contribute to politically…but it is their choice. A company cannot control the rights of US citizens to support a group that they choose.

  17. PACUR is the company Sen. Ron Johnson married into, the company that took taxpayer-subsidized loans. The Ron Johnson that says the Affordable Care Act is an assault on his freedom but doesn’t mention you’re subsidizing his Senate benefits and those of all his staffers.

  18. Sorry, but I guess I’m going to have to be the jerk here. While I am behind the Democrats 100% and want Walker out of office just as much as everybody else, posting a boycott list of employers that have contributed to Walker’s election isn’t going to do a single bit of difference. Businesses are not going to notice a significant reduction in revenue to consider their contributions at fault and there is no possible way to boycott every business that contributed in the first place.

    Just one example: Chambers & Owen, Kwik Trip, Eby Brown, US Oil. These companies supply about 95% of the convenience stores in the state. So if you are going to boycott them, you better be prepared to not spend a single dollar at a gas station.

  19. I’m out of state but standing with Wisconsin! No more Sargento Cheese! No more Johnsonville Sausage! All my links and friends are getting this message. This is the least I can do. Give us more contributors to say no to!

    We always shop at Sendiks, since it is local. No more!
