20 Lies (and counting) as told by Gov. Walker of Wisonsin

Russ' Filtered News examines some of the lies told by Wisconsin's Governor Walker and provides links to resource materials authenticating the claims.  One of my favorites...

Walker: Public employees are more richly compensated than their public sector counterparts.

The truth: According to the Economic Policy Institute, wages and salaries of state and local employees are lower than those for private sector employees with comparable earnings determinants such as education and work experience. State workers typically are under-compensated by 8.2% in Wisconsin.
