Scott Walker Creates Jobs – For Felons

 

MADISON-Scott Walker, who never has created a single private sector job during his lengthy political career, finally has jobs he can point to having created.
 
The problem is that they are for felons. To provide security. At the Milwaukee County courthouse. We're not making this up.
 
News is breaking today that Walker's sweetheart deal with British-based Wackenhut has resulted in the hiring of felonsand for people who have been trucked in from as far away as Florida.
 
A group of Milwaukee County supervisors released the news in a report this morning that accompanies their residency requirement resolution.
 
"Scott Walker can finally say truthfully that he has created jobs. The problem is that he has done it with a foreign firm who hires felons to provide security at the courthouse," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Thursday. "Only a guy who eats $2,400 steak dinners and gives himself a $50,000 raise and claims he packs a brown bag lunch would fail to see the irony in this."
