Following is a statement by Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Margaret Brickerman decrying Mitt Romney's comments that he would "get rid of" Planned Parenthood, a vital health care provider for millions of American women in need of affordable health care and life-saving services such cancer screenings, birth control, and other preventative care.
MADISON – After months spent decrying public school teachers, nurses and snow plow drivers as the “haves” as justification for his assault on collective bargaining, Scott Walker on Monday night ridiculously suggested that his $144,423 salary isn’t "real money."
As he tries to flex his conservative muscle and whitewash his record of big government spending in an attempt to curry favor with right-wing extremists, super-lobbyist Tommy Thompson is now laughably claiming that he is not a “professional politician.”
New figures released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that Wisconsin led the nation in job loss in 2011 under the Tea Party extremism of Scott Walker.
"If you create a legal defense fund, you are either being investigated, being charged with or have been convicted of a criminal violation of Chapter 11 or Chapter 12," said George Dunst, a retired state election lawyer.
"The only way you can set that up is if you are under investigation or being prosecuted," said Michael Maistelman, an election lawyer who is representing former Walker aide Tim Russell in the John Doe investigation. "One can only draw the conclusion that either one of those two things is happening."
“Wisconsin has never had a governor that needed a criminal defense fund, but Scott Walker is no ordinary governor. He has bent and broken the rules that should govern the conduct of an executive. Every citizen, regardless of party, agrees that our government should be free of corruption. It looks very much like Scott Walker has not given Wisconsin this honor.”
