For Wisconsin Millionaires, a Politician in Every Pocket

Jan 20, 2014

Multimillionaire Wisconsin businessman Michael Eisenga wants to cut his child support payments. So he decided to change the law.

Eisenga and his lawyer wrote line-by-line instructions to the staff of a Wisconsin State Representative, to whom he’s given thousands of dollars, to write a law capping the amount of income used to calculate child support at $150,000. In 2010, Eisenga made $1.2 million, so the new law would allow him to pay a tiny percentage of his income to support his kids.

You’re not safe from these guys’ greed, even if one of them is your father!
