New Ad "What Walker Knew" Showcases the Criminal Activity That Occurred Feet From Walker's Own Desk

MADISON – The Democratic Party of Wisconsin today launched a new website and a new online ad highlighting the ongoing criminal corruption probe into Scott Walker and his administration. No governor in Wisconsin's history has had six close associates or aides charged with fifteen felonies and three misdemeanors. Two Walker associates have now been convicted.

"The investigation into Scott Walker's office is a tangled web involving the theft of more than $60,000 intended for the families of military servicemembers killed in action, child sex crimes, secret email networks, illegal campaign contributions and the abuse of taxpayer resources for political gain," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate. "Our new website at WalkerInvestigation.com allows Wisconsinites from all across our state to be the lead detective in helping us expose Scott Walker's criminal path to power."

The new online ad, entitled "What Scott Walker Knew," showcases coverage of the criminal activity committed by Scott Walker's top aides, most of which occurred just a few feet from his desk. The ad closes with two questions: "What did he know?" and "When did he know it?"
