Christopher Cline of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and head of Gogebic Taconite gave Tommy Thompson $2,500 for Thompson's unsuccessful run for U.S. Senate in 2012, a search at the Center for Responsive Politics reveals.
Cline has numerous companies that he uses to funnel money into politicians with their hands out.
Cline also contributed over $100,000 in 2012 alone to GOP organizations and figures including Mitt Romney and House Speaker John Boehner, and remains a dirty coal producer who some call the New King of Coal.
As for Wisconsin, taking the iron and trashing the environment will do nicely.
Gogebic Taconite's Christopher Cline is set on raping the land in northern Wisconsin and no one is going to get in his way.
Certainly, not the people who live in in Iron and Ashland counties.
