Maybe it's not Abele. Maybe it's an evil plot of Lee Holloway, who's the secret leader of the nefarious and evil SykesBelling Gang. Or maybe Abele and Holloway are actually the Koch brothers in disguise.
Or maybe--just maybe--Scott Walker's offer was the very best deal that AFSCME could ever have gotten.
