Scott Walker and Republican Party of Wisconsin Must Reimburse Local Communities for Cost of Fake Dems

MADISON – The Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Wednesday called on Scott Walker’s Republican Party to pay back Wisconsin taxpayers for the fraud of running fake Democrats in the historic recall elections.

“The Republicans have brazenly lied to Wisconsin and they must repay the taxpayers for their fraud,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate.  “For a party that pretends to care about the tax burden of working families, they are sure willing to spend their money to finance pure political gain. Scott Walker’s GOP is sitting on mountains of corporate cash – they should put their money where their mouth is and repay Wisconsin for their outrageous conspiracy.”
