DNR Selling LakeFront Property to Scott Walker Donor

We know Scott Walker is auctioning off state property to help close the massive deficit Walker bestowed upon Wisconsin.

Today, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Walker's donors are buying.

There is no listing of this transaction or any other on the DNR's Real Estate sale site.

Reports Lee Bergquist:
A major donor to Gov. Scott Walker, has reached an agreement with the Department of Natural Resources to buy 1.75 acres of prime lakefront property in Vilas County — a deal that gives her direct lake access to another property she now owns.

The agreement calls for the DNR to sell Uihlein 765 feet of frontage on Rest Lake in the Town of Manitowish Waters for $275,000. She currently owns an adjacent 11-unit condominium complex without lake access.

[Elizabeth] Uihlein and her husband, Richard, have donated nearly $3 million to Walker in recent years. ...

The lakefront land is one of a series of large-scale property sales now underway by the DNR. They were prompted by the Republican-controlled Legislature, which in 2013 ordered the agency to put 10,000 acres up for sale by June 30, 2017. ...

The DNR has so far identified 118 properties totaling 8,300 acres for possible sale. As part of that process, field staff are called in to study the ecological significance of the land.

Last month, trout anglers criticized a DNR decision that identified more than 1,000 acres for potential sales in Langlade County that contained spring ponds with native brook trout populations.

Walker is selling out Wisconsin. If you want to reach him, Walker is likely in Iowa or South Carolina these days.
