Governor Walker and his team of lawyers will probably go in for "voluntary" questioning this week, that is, if he can take time off from all that campaing fundraising out of state. Sounds more Nixonesque all the time.

I talked to her at home last night. Feel bad. She feels Worse.

We cannot afford another story like this one. No one can give them any reason to do another story. That means no laptops, no websites, not time away during the work day, etc.

Lots of stuff in the news on this today. In one article I see hundred of emails of Walker's were subpoenaed a day before the election in 2010 and he kept it as quiet as possible. In another his being called in for questioning is not so voluntary.

And it seems we hardly have any Wisconsin people runnning Wisconsin anymore. Walker is from out of state and he continues to hire and appoint people from out of state: http://www.alternet.org/story/153979/me ... hit_women/

And state Sentor Pam Galloway is from out of state. When they are done milking the place for all they can get, the will all just move on.

An article from today's Capitol Times discussing Walker's history of illegal campaigning and inherent hypocrisy.

Also, a fitting cartoon is included...

Another long expose on Walker's history of using illegal campaign tactics and descriptions of six of his close allies who have been charged with felonies.

Yes, 6 of his close associates have been charged with felonies so far. I'm sure he didn't know anything.... he was an Eagle Scout, after all...

Sounds a lot like every other politician we have ever been blessed with ! :roll:

I see a need to clean house and start from scratch.

Sad to say but more deceit:

And I won't even go into the Redistricting Scandal perpetuated by Republican Legislators. The Public should demand to see the entire redistricting files. Senator Pam Galloway's office may be reached at: 608-266-2502

Walker has created a legal defense fund... which I don't understand because he has repeatedly said he is not "John Doe".

Why would he set up a defense fund if he knows he is innocent? Because he's lying. Again.

Sounds to me like someone has tried and convicted Gov. Walker even though he hasn't had a trial. Lots of loosely based allegations.
Also, I started work in the Wisconsin legislature 42 years ago next month (for the senate Democrats, by the way) and charges of gerrymandering and drawing lines to suit the party in power have been made in EVERY redistricting effort since and probably before. Both parties are out to boost their strength and control at every opportunity.

Larry,

It is somewhat strange to setup a legal defense fund when he has repeatedly said he isn't the target of an investigation. From what I understand you normally need one of the three following items to be able to start a legal defense fund.

1. Be under investigation.
2. Be charged with a crime.
3. Have been found guilty of a crime.

We know two and three haven't happened yet but he keeps saying one isn't happening either.

On a fun note, maybe Walker should have run for governor in Illinois. It's pretty routine for the governor and their staff to be charged with crimes there... :lol:
