Partial transcript here, below the Youtubes.

UPDATE: Gov. Walker’s spokesman confirms the phone call was real:

He continued to say that the budget repair bill is about the budget. The phone call shows that the governor says the same thing in private as he does in public and the lengths that others will go to disrupt the civil debate Wisconsin is having.”
