Chris Liebenthal Lying about Scott Walker Again

In Today's age of the Internet, catching people in a lie and publishing it so all can see has become a whole lot easier.  Case in point: Chris Liebenthal, at the Cognitive Dissidence, published some lies about Scott Walker in regard to current contract negotiations with the AFSCME union.  Luckily, we have some conservative bloggers that are willing to hold the feet of liberals to the fire.  Over at Scottforgov.com, someone just made Liebenthal look pretty silly with how contract negotiations really work.

Here is a snippet of what was said,

"Capper also makes the wholly unsubstantiated claim the Walker has delayed and sabotaged the negotiation process. The fact of the matter is that the Personnel Committee of the County Board is given the SOLE authority to negotiate these contracts under County Ordinance. While the County Executive has, and should, comment on the process, the speed with which the process proceeds (at least from the County’s perspective), is in the full control of the Committee.

Check out the Milwaukee County Code of General Ordinances: (Specifically Chapter 80.03)

Collective bargaining with certified bargaining units shall be carried on by the committee on personnel which shall adopt, and thereafter may amend, rules and procedures governing the conduct of such bargaining not in conflict with section 1.13(c) of the Code."

  • Chris Liebenthal  - Don't you get tired of being wrong?

    Greg Gracz, the county's labor negotiator, is answerable to Scott Walker, not the county board. Walker acted through Cindy Archer to interfere with the contract. Unless you have another explanation for why the contract offer authorized by the board changed on two different occasions on its way to the negotiating table.

    They're just kids. What's your excuse for not knowing?

    Chris,

    I will copy what Scottforgov.com posted to you.

    "First, Gracz does NOT serve at the pleasure of the county executive. He is appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Board. Either can dismiss him, only with the concurrence of the other under Chapter 79.01 of the Ordinances (http://www.municode.com/Resources/gateway.asp?pid=12598&sid=49).

    Second, and I’ll type this one slowly for you again, the Personnel Committee of the County Board is given the SOLE authority to negotiate these contracts under County Ordinance. I don’t need to explain it, I would have no idea what the Board did to the proposal because they do it in closed session and minutes of those sessions are not produced (I’ve asked). I have also spoken with someone from the Board and when the Committee gives Gracz his instructions they do not do it in writing, they come to a verbal consensus YOU need to prove that Walker is doing all the things you say he is doing. Back it up or shut up about it."

    Chris,

    Does your face hurt? Because you got bitch-slapped on that last post. :-)

    Chris,

    You fat mouth-breathing libtard. As you can see with the people speaking, we are fed up with supporting the members of the worthless and weak. Time to pay up tubby. If you don't like it, use your credentials and attempt to make a transition to the outside or stand their stomping your feet like most ignorant sheep do, when they apply their brain power. You cowards can get together and shout down old ladies but one to one most of you can't handle an open discussion with out your face turning purple.
