The Governor of Wisconsin has been found using his official government e-mail address to promote the Scott Walker for Governor campaign. Walker is a Republican running againstMary Burke, the Democratic Challenger. The news first emerged Thursday afternoon in my email box.. He is the Governor of Wisconsin, formerly the county executive of Milwaukee. According to the e-mail
We got some great news for all Wisconsinites this week. The non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau announced Thursday the State of Wisconsin’s general fund revenue is projected to be $911.9 million higher than previously anticipated. This additional projected revenue is a sign Wisconsin’s economy continues to grow and add jobs, and it’s more great news for our hardworking taxpayers.
When we took office in 2011, we pledged to do away with the failed policies of the past and confront the fiscal and economic crisis we faced. We made tough, but prudent, decisions over the last three years, and now our bold reforms are producing results for the people of Wisconsin. While it is no doubt there will be people who want to spend the money, I believe it should be returned to the taxpayers. My administration will work with the Legislature on the best way to move forward with our next tax relief plan.
The days of billion-dollar deficits and double digit tax increases are over, and we have led ourselves into a new era of financial responsibility and continued investment in Wisconsin’s priorities. Our state is heading in the right direction, and together, we are moving Wisconsin forward.
(Edit note- Scott Walker is lying)
The campaign e-mail, which includes "office of the Governor" invites recipients to watch the State of the State address next week on his other campaign website that is paid for by taxpayers "prosperity.wi.gov ".
It appears the e-mail targets donors and adoring press, explaining that attendees can, “hear Scott's ideas about the ways we are moving Wisconsin forward.” at the event.
It is unknown just how many donors and adoring press got the e-mail from Lindgren; though it is clear that some recipients who received the political solicitation were outside of the state he leads.
An archived video of the Governor shows that he promised a "floor" of 250,000 jobs which he has fallen woefully short of.
A career politician and a candidate for both state and local office herself, Walker knew exactly what he was doing when he explained his strategy to his boss:
Scott Walker should have known that what he was doing was against ethics and campaign laws when he seriously considered adding violence to the peaceful protests in the Capitol.
The State of Wisconsin should understand that the only people who actually "drop bombs" are terrorists who are trying to harm you:
With the help of TWO of the countries top criminal defense firms(and a few hundred thousand dollars), Scott Walker was able to avoid charges in the first John Doe hearing. Now there is a second John Doe investigation into Walker's perpetual unethical and unlawful behavior. What happens next to Scott Walker now appears to rest in the hands of Federal and state Prosecutors.
