CHICAGO, IL (WHBL) - Governor Scott Walker stood silently this morning as 50 protestors interrupted his speech at a breakfast in Chicago. And after they left, the Chicago Tribune quoted Walker as saying, "No matter how loud you shout, the facts are the facts -- Our reforms have worked in Wisconsin." The Republican Walker was a few minutes into his speech to the Union League Club when members of the Occupy Chicago group started chants like "Union busting, it's disgusting." The protestors they left after about 10 minutes. They railed against Walker's law which virtually ended collective bargaining for most public employee unions in Wisconsin. About 300 people attended the breakfast, and they were greeted by 30 demonstrators outside the building's two entrances. The Tribune story noted that public employee unions are leading an effort to recall Walker. State Democrats and an advocacy group are doing most of the publicity within Wisconsin.
