   So Senator Lena Taylor decided to update her Facebook status by taking a crack at one of Wisconsin's leading companies.  Here is her Status Update:

Money talks! Why shouldn't you buy the following: Dixie Cups, Vanity Fair Paper Products, Mardi Gras Napkins, Brawny and Sparkle Paper Towels, Angel Soft and Quilted Northern Toilet Paper...Your purchase supports destruction of democracy, two words...Koch Brothers. Join the boycott, send this to all of your Facebook Friends.

   Senator Taylor believes that folks should boycott these products because their parent company is Georgia Pacific, who is owned by Koch Industries, a leading Republican fundraiser.

   We had the Green Bay Mayor on our show this afternoon.  He is not happy.  He says he is embarrassed and worried that Georgia Pacific, who makes these products and provides jobs to thousands of Wisconsinites will get the wrong message.  You think?  The Mayor doesn't care about the politics of the situation.  He just cares about the valuable jobs this company provides.

   I reached out to Senator Taylor for comment.  I never got a call back.  I guess she was too busy updating her Facebook Status.
