BREAKING: New Information Answers John Doe Question; Reveals Scott Walker Was Solely Responsible for Hire of Figures Charged In Corruption Probe
New research obtained by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin reveals that Scott Walker alone was responsible for the hire and promotion of Tim Russell and Kelly Rindfleisch, two key figures in the John Doe criminal corruption probe that has, to date, charged six close Walker aides and supporters with 15 felonies, resulted in two convictions and required Scott Walker himself to establish a criminal defense fund.
Scott Walker has launched a multi-million dollar ad campaign in the hopes that he can convince parents and teachers that his $2.6 billion cuts to public education - the largest in Wisconsin history - are leading to successes. But parents can see the growing class sizes, the shrinking staff and the deteriorating schools.
Rep. Chris Taylor (D- Madison) wrote a hard-hitting editorial this morning highlighting the GOP’s repeated assault on women’s rights.
After months of hysterical claims, Scott Walker acknowledged last Monday that his campaign failed to produce any challenges to the more than one million signatures our grassroots volunteers submitted to force a recall.
Now, despite Scott Walker's failure to challenge even one signature, he has asked the Government Accountability Board to accept challenges from an extreme, right-wing Tea Party group from Texas called the King Street Patriots, whose supporters believe that registering the poor to vote is "un-American" and will "destroy the country."
As Wisconsin leads the nation in job loss, having shed jobs every month since his draconian budget was signed into law, Scott Walker is working hard to make sure his political cronies won’t feel the burden.

As students return for the start of second semester college classes in Wisconsin, they are already experiencing the effects of Gov. Walker’s damaging cuts to our universities and technical colleges. College students and their families are right to question why it makes sense to slash education budgets while spending lavishly on special interests and wealthy corporations.
Governor Walker’s talk about job training rings very hollow after he made more than $70 million in cuts to job training programs through our technical colleges. Any economist will tell you that in a time of economic turmoil and high unemployment, investing in job training is more important than ever. The governor’s decision could not have been worse timing for thousands of displaced Wisconsin workers.
