Rush Limbaugh mentioned a story first reported by Wisconsin Reporter on Wisconsin Democrat gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke being fired from her family business for being “incompetent.” Listen to the audio and read the article below:
RUSH: I’ve got a story in the Stack here. I’ve just put it the bottom thinking I wasn’t gonna get to it today.
Now this story hit, and I’m trying to find it wherever I put it. It’s a story about Mary Burke, the Democrat candidate there, and how she was fired from the family business for incompetence. Whatever the family business is, she was fired from it. She’s seeking the governorship in Wisconsin, and the point is: If her own family had to discharge her from the family business because of how much she gunked it up, then what business does she have being elected governor?
Mary Burke, yeah. The story on this, “Burke apparently was fired by her own family following steep overseas financial losses and plummeting morale among Burke’s European sales staff.”
It’s a bicycle company. They own Trek Bicycles. Apparently Bush rides them. They’re very popular, but she was mangling that business. The family kicked her out of the family business, and now she’s seeking to be governor and that has become news. I don’t know if it’s big in Wisconsin, but I wanted to pass that on.
