Filmmaker Michael Moore speaks at the Capitol

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Among the thousands of protesters at the Capitol today, Filmmaker Michael Moore.

Moore urged Wisconsin residents to keep up the fight against Governor Walker's budget bill.

We spoke with State Senator Glenn Grothman (R - Wisconsin) about big names coming to join the Wisconsin protests.

"When people like Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson show up, I think they only embarrass the protesters because they have a bad reputation in this country already. It tanks the protesters that they would rely on them for publicity," said State Senator Glenn Grothman (R - Wisconsin)

The Reverend Jesse Jackson returned to Madison yesterday for the second time since the Capitol protests started, he spoke again on the behalf of union protesters.
