The same day Senate Democrats left the state to boycott a vote on Gov. Scott Walker’s collective bargaining bill, a union official from Washington, D.C., provided the Democrats' leader with talking points.
One of people offering suggestions to Senate Democrats was Blaine Rummel, a spokesperson from the national office of the public workers union AFSCME, also known as the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.
Rummel sent an email marked “TPs,” for talking points, to Miller spokesman Mike Browne late in the evening of Feb. 17 after Senate Democrats had crossed the state line that morning.Also that day, Rummel had helped coordinate AFSCME’s opposition to the bill in Wisconsin
