Throughout his career as a politician, Scott Walker has shown a willingness to push the boundaries of ethics and law, which has ensnared him in two John Doe investigations into activities of his campaign.

In addition, he was able to take advantage of a recall fundraising loophole to raise unlimited campaign cash and solidify a nationwide network of megadonors. He has also rewarded loyalty, with a number of state jobs, public contracts, and economic development awards going to his close aides, associates and donors.

Scott Walker’s political philosophy can be summed up in three easy steps we call the Walker Doctrine: (1) Reward my donors, (2) Increase my power, and (3) Punish my enemies.
