Scott Walker Violated Own Ethics Pledge by $15 Million

'Career Politician Scott Walker Has a Career of Breaking His Promises'

As a candidate, Scott Walker pledged and promised to not raise money as governor from the January introduction of the budget until it would be signed into law.

In 2014, One Wisconsin Now showed he had violated that pledge to the tune of $5.6 million. Now, three years later, he has violated his own promise to the people of Wisconsin by a staggering $15 million. This includes $5.9 million in 2015 prior to the budget being signed and his self-reported $3.5 million raised this period.

“Career politician Scott Walker has a career of breaking his promises to the people of Wisconsin,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. “Your word matters, even for someone like Scott Walker who’s spent almost every day of his adult life as a politician.”

One Wisconsin Now’s release from September 2014 is at http://onewi.org/2bjOkI2.
