Walker is a pure-bred Milwaukee-suburb Repub. He’s not against big government, he’s simply against big progressive government.Actually, the whole post is worthy.
Here is a post that I wrote at Milwaukee County First. It does raise some interesting questions:
It has come to our attention recently that the logo for the Milwaukee County Parks appeared on at least one of the banners at the Americans For Prosperity-sponsored Tea Party Rally, which was held at the lake front on September 19th.
This is evidenced by a photo reprinted here, with full permission of the photographer:
The fact that the Parks logo appears on the banner could very well lead on to think that Milwaukee County endorsed and/or sponsored this event, which would not be legal. It is bad enough that we had two County elected officials there, especially with the violence, but if someone authorized the illegal endorsement of a political event, that needs to be addressed.
I have sent out emails of inquiry to County Executive Scott Walker, Parks Director Sue Black and to Americans for Prosperity to find out if the use of the logo was authorized and if so, who authorized it. If it was not authorized, it will be interesting to see what actions Milwaukee County will take to correct the misperception that someone from the County actually endorsed a political event such as this.
At the site which is the source of the photo, a commenter claims that it is required by the county parks to have their logo displayed. On the surface, it causes doubt. What if some group like the KKK or other blatantly outrageous group wanted to have an event at a park. Would the County really want any association with it? However, in the interest of fairness, we will look into this claim as well.
I will keep the reader informed as I receive their responses, hopefully in a timely fashion.
