Did Scott Walker Lie Under Oath?

Why yes he did! Look here and decide for yourself! We know that just prior to the election, Scott Walker said that he would be tough but he will negotiate with unions. Then in February, he dropped the bomb of ACT 10 on the people of WI. In the craziness of last year, Scot Walker ended up testifying in front of Congress at a hearing titled “State and Municipal Debt: Tough Choices Ahead”. Thats where, under oath, Governor Walker was asked, when he got the idea for ACT 10.
“In December, after the elections, but before I was sworn into office,” Walker said(under oath).
There was one problem with that:
Records obtained by FOX6 News show it was actually November when the Legislative Reference Bureau – the state office that essentially creates bills – was directed to start drafting what would become Act 10. An internal memo entitled “Alternative Approach to Collective Bargaining” sketched out plans to require unions to recertify every year, and to prohibit them from collecting dues. An email spells out a strategy for “prohibiting public employee unions from collectively bargaining over health care benefits.” This all occurred before Walker had taken office.
Thankfully, Mike Lowe asked him about this very issue last night and here is the report. The timeline is there for you to decide if Scott Walker lied under oath to Congress. Can we really elect a Governor who plays this loose with the truth and being under oath does not matter to him?

One thing for sure is that Governor Walker's answer to this question seriously rivals Miss South Carolina's:

    1. what came of it was democrats and republicans both agreed there was enough there to take it to trial.

      That would be a fair result here.

    2. Wow, were you passed out for years in the late 1990s, imustberacistanddrunk? Really, you have to ask about whether there was an IMPEACHMENT?

      If so, you have no reason to be commenting on a political blog.

  4. A huge, messy, very public scandal which changed Clinton's image forever is what came of HIS lies. You know, based on the kinds public excoriations of political figures that never happen to today's corrupt GOP politicians.

    1. Republicans resign when they are guilty of scandal. Judging by all the campaigning Bill Clinton has done for numerous democrats, since he re-defined the meaning of the word "is", that his base doesn't hold him accountable for his lapses in judgement.

    3. Dems certainly did hold Bill Clinton accountable; why do you think Gore ran from him, so Bush even had a chance in 2000? Bush certainly didn't do well because of his brains -- although admittedly, Bush looks like a brain surgeon compared to you, imustbeanidiot. Really, read even a bit about even only the recent past, and you might be able to keep up here.

      Oh, and Dems also know how to spell judgment.

    4. Funny, I haven't seen an endorsement from the president on this race. Not even a fundraising appearance. Maybe he is as popular as Clinton was?
      Fortunately, I know more history than my public school education taught me.

    5. You haven't seen an endorsement because this is a Wisconsin race. Or at least for us. For Walker, he's like a prostitute going to the highest paying Johns.

      I'm just waiting for him to meet up with the John named Doe.

  5. Walker totally didn't answer a straight question in the debate tonight.

    Instead, Walker rambles on about all the places in Wisconsin.

    Wow. If Walker had a chance of swaying my vote in his favor, that was it. All he had to do was answer some questions, but nope, like a typical Republican, he won't reveal his true masters.
