Walker Asking Out-of-state Donors to Keep Senate GOP in Office


Gov. Scott Walker and his GOP underlings have complained (incorrectly) for months that the pro-union movement in Wisconsin is being fueled by out-of-state forces. Now, the press is reporting that Gov. Walker is in Florida asking out-of-state donors to fuel the campaigns of GOP Senators facing recall:

Last week, news outlet Newsmax talked to Walker in Florida about his plans to raise money nationwide for a new endeavor from the Wisconsin Republican Party called Frontline Wisconsin, which aims to support Wisconsin’s eight GOP state senators who face recall efforts.

No word on whether or not this interview took place under the shade of a palm tree.
