Chris Cline, owner of Gogebic Taconite, also owns
this luxury yacht named “Mine Games.”
Governor Walker and his supporters don’t want you to know this, but we think you should.
They’re banking (literally) on the open-pit mining bill passing through the State Senate. So is Chris Cline, owner of Gogebic Taconite, the company proposing the mine – and the owner of a 164-foot luxury yacht named “Mine Games.”
Together, we’ve made incredible headway on this issue. That’s why Governor Walker is clamping down so hard, putting pressure on Senators at the State Capitol to pass this bill.
They’ll do anything to get an open-pit mining bill passed – even if it means scheduling the vote at the last-minute or in the middle of the night. But we won’t let them. Donate to WLCV Today and help us stop these mine games and scrap the open-pit mining bill once and for all!
Why are Governor Walker and mining magnate Chris Cline so hell-bent on passing the open-pit mining bill?
* Governor Walker owes Chris Cline. The Cline Group and its affiliates have already donated $10K to Walker’s campaign – with $8K of it coming directly out of head honcho Chris Cline’s own pocket!
* Gogebic Taconite gets a deal – and Chris Cline gets another yacht (while we foot the bill). If the open-pit mining bill passes, the amount Gogebic would have to pay the DNR would be capped at $1.1 million, leaving Wisconsin taxpayers to foot the bill for a potential $2.7 million shortfall.
Gogebic Taconite and Chris Cline think that if they shovel enough cash into the pockets of politicians, they can have the best mining laws that money can buy.
Help us stop Governor Walker and Chris Cline from playing “mine games” with our precious natural resources. Donate to WLCV Today.
Now more than ever we need your help to keep our game strong and win this fight. Thank you for all you do.

P.S. Governor Walker gets his campaign contributions. Chris Cline gets a new yacht – and all we want is clean water and a place to canoe and fish. These mine games are a clear case of the have-yachts attempting to profit from the have-nots and from our natural resources. AND we’ll have none of it! Please donate $250, $100, $60, $40, or whatever you can afford to WLCV Today to help us keep our game strong and scrap this mining bill once and for all! Thank you.
The future of natural resources in Wisconsin is in your hands!
