MADISON, Wis. — In response to Gov. Walker’s continued stonewalling about who’s footing the bill for his high priced team of criminal defense lawyers in a “John Doe” probe of corruption and illegal campaigning, One Wisconsin Now unveiled an online contest to let people submit their guesses.
One Wisconsin Now Spokesperson Mike Browne commented, “It was revealed 111 days ago Gov. Walker had hired criminal defense lawyers. We found out 76 days ago that he created a legal defense fund to pay for these lawyers. And it’s been 23 days since it was uncovered he’s raised at least $60,000 for the fund.”
He continued, “But to this day, Gov. Walker is refusing to tell us who’s contributing the big money to cover the bills of his high-priced team of criminal defense lawyers. So if he won’t tell the people, we’ll let the people tell us who they think it is.”

Browne concluded, “We’ll announce the winners when we can, but it really depends on how much longer Gov. Walker will keep refusing to reveal who’s paying for his criminal defense lawyers.”
