Resistance is futile

More "tools" for Gov. Walker:

Former state lawmaker Phil Montgomery will chair the state Public Service Commission, Gov. Scott Walker announced Monday.

R.J. Pirlot, director of legislative relations at Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the state's largest business lobby, will be Montgomery's executive assistant, the governor's office said.

"He was very friendly to industry when he was a legislator, and was seen as carrying water for the telecommunications industry and the utilities," said Mike McCabe, executive director of the Democracy Campaign. "Consumer advocates would naturally have concerns about somebody who seemed so supportive of industry now being in a position of overseeing those industries."

Until January, Montgomery served on the board of directors of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a national organization that works on development of state-level polices that promote limited government, free markets and federalism.

Assimilation by ALEC is well underway!
