Of course, the gentle reader already knew that, since they read it here first, second and third.
Since this news has come out, Walker has taken a much different tone:
Speaking to reporters Wednesday in Madison, Walker stressed that he had no "inside track" on the investigation and said he had just been expressing a hope Tuesday.As a commenter had so correctly pointed out:
"I didn't say I had any knowledge of it when the person asked me a question," Walker said. "I said, like most people I would be happy and hopeful that it might be done this week," Walker said.
In spite of the continued investigation, Walker said he hadn't lost track of his priorities.
"It hasn't stopped us from doing our job," he said of the probe that has convicted several of his former aides. "I think most people - not me - but most people in the state would like to think it's going to end at some point. My focus hasn't changed."
Since Walker "is not the focus of the investigation" and is only "cooperating", why would he care how long the investigation lasts??...we know the answer...The next logical question for the reporters to ask Walker is exactly just what is his focus on. His pipe dream of becoming president? Or just raising more money for his legal defense fund? Or getting enough bail money lined up for when the time does come?
And speaking of his legal defense fund, does anyone else suspect that Walker's "Talk With Walker" tour, in which he talks to business owners - most of whom are also campaign contributors - but not to the actual citizens of Wisconsin, is nothing more than a shakedown to get them to contribute to his legal defense fund?
It reminds me of the "Executive Rides" he took when he was Milwaukee County Executive and used county resources and personnel to go campaigning.
Given Walker's propensity to doing the same things over and over, regardless of they're unethical or illegal, it sure does seem likely.
