Walker's Wisconsin – Thirty feet away


A lie may take care of the present, but it has no future. ~Author Unknown

Poor Scott Walker always finds himself just thirty feet away, and down the hall from the truth. The act of lying is a personal decision for the freckled boy caught with hands in the cookie jar, and for political players caught with their ethics stretched over the tights of an eight month pregnancy of a bastard fib. Just gas.

So, in the land of the rule of law comes a means to up the ante: “Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give is the truth?”. Walker came as close as wet to water to this “truth or dare” test of his knowledge of the secret email network operating in his Milwaukee County Executive’s office.

Through her attorney, Wink stressed that Walker knew nothing about the political activities going on in his office. Walker spokeswoman Ciara Matthews said in a statement that Walker “expected everyone to follow the law and made that clear publicly and privately.”Mother Jones

Right up to the morning of Thursday Oct. 8 of 2012, Walker had been subpoenaed to testify in Rindfleisch’s trial, before lawyers with fat lap tops, and marked money made it all go away – no rule of law testimony – back to personal decision. Trust me.

Fast forward to September 18 – Yesterday

In case you were watching Masterpiece Mystery on PBS and missed the reality TV rolling out of Madison, get with it, tune in to the classic scam of the Wisconsin Sportsmen starring Scott Suder as the set up man, Terry Kohler as the money funneling financier of fantasy, and a return of Scott Walker as the man just thirty feet away and down the hall from all the action. Just yesterday his scene was aired with another melodrama of denial. Trust me:

“Again, not being involved in it… it’s really hard for me to comment because you get bits and pieces that you hear about,” Walker told reporters when asked if Suder handled the grant proposal appropriately as a legislator.

1) United Sportsmen was the only applicant for the award.

2) The carefully crafted grant requirements were unanimously voted into the state budget in May after just seven minutes of discussion.

3) United Sportsmen falsified its 501(3)(c) status on the grant application.

4) United Sportsmen has a scant record of any involvement in promoting hunting of fishing.

5) Sept 5 – Late Thursday Gov. Scott Walker canceled a controversial $500,000 grant to a Sportsmen’s group with little training experience but close ties to GOP politicians.JS Online By Jason Stein and Patrick Marley of the Journal Sentinel

And thirty feet away, and just down the hall…

Walker reiterated that Suder’s appointment to the PSC was not something he was “directly involved in.”

Trust me.
