"Walker Koch" is trending after Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker was prank-called by a journalist posing as billionaire conservative supporter David Koch. 

A reporter from BuffaloBeast.com spent 20 minutes on the phone with Walker, who repeatedly made clear he has no intention of backing down in the budget standoff in Wisconsin. 

Democrats in the Wisconsin legislature have walked out in protest over Walker's proposals to scale back public unions and cut their collective bargaining rights.  On the call, Walker does say he's prepared to talk to his opponents if they return, but not to negotiate.
