Leave it to Evers: Tony’s complicated COVID shot bribe

Leave it to Tony Evers to screw up a COVID vaccination bribe.

Evers this week announced the state will hand out $100 Visa gift cards to Wisconsinites who get their first dose between Aug. 20 and Labor Day. Taxpayers will pick up the tab as Evers taps into his pile of American Rescue Plan Act cash.

In Evers’ bloated bureaucratic tradition, the vaxxed will have to fill out an application at 100.wisconsin.gov. They can expect their Visas within a month and a half.

But Minnesotans are getting the same $100 gift cards immediately.

Gov. Tim Walz announced on Wednesday that the first 3,600 Minnesotans to get their first dose of vaccine at this weeks’ Minnesota State Fair will be instantly $100 richer.

“If you’ve waited to get your shot, there’s never been a better opportunity: You can walk away with a $100 Visa gift card in-hand if you get your first COVID-19 dose at the state fair,” Walz said.

Meanwhile, newly vaxxed Wisconsinites can expect their bribe by the time fall rolls around.

    The funniest thing about this horsehockey is hearing the ‘early adaptor’ sheep all whine and cry that they want their ‘card’ too. Some of the drips even think that (n)Evers is going to give them a card if they fill out the form saying that they got it when they were told to.

    They want to get what they have coming to them…sadly, they’re going to…*good* and *HARD*…!

    Heeeeeeeeee heeeeeeeeee heeeeeeee…
