When driving out of Menard's today, I was surprised to be met by some protesters out front (I drove in a different entrance). I stopped and read a few signs and asked how much money Menard's gave Scott Walker. The one protector didn't know, but the other said $26,000.

Not sure if that's right, I was only able to find $2,460 that Menard's gave to Scott Walker's campaign. Regardless of the amount, these people were pissed. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts, and if the businesses actually feel any impact from the protests. Some comments from Menard's corp are at the bottom of this article.
