Russ Decker: (D-Inmate)?

This is pretty serious.

[Cheryl Albers] said Joint Finance Co-Chairman Russ Decker, D-Weston, called a couple of weeks ago to see what it would take to get her vote for the budget. Albers said Decker asked if she was interested in state aid for a bridge in Loganville on Wisconsin 154 that is closed due to flooding.

Wisconsin law is clear: this is called "logrolling," and it is a felony.

It is interesting that the law does NOT include quid-pro-quos from the Governor, however.
