The Walker love child story
Submitted by Steve Hanson on Sun, 06/03/2012 - 9:44am

This is one of those mornings of mixed feelings in my office. Jim Hightower has often said that mixed feelings is what you have when your daughter comes home from the prom with a Gideon bible in her purse, and somehow that's appropriate here.

We don't have any direct confirrmation of this story, and it may well turn out not to be true. It is only an allegation, but it is an allegation by someone who one would really expect to be credible. We were very much tempted to sit on this story, since it is obviously open to questioning, particularly considering the timing. We understand all of that, and we also understand that in the grand scheme of things, there are much more important reasons to consider Scott Walker unfit for office (about which you will hear more in the next two days). Although this is nor originally our story, and comes from the Wisconsin Citizens Media Coop, I'm not going to try to chicken out by saying it's their responsibilty. We've published it here, and take responsibility for the fact that we've done so.

Clearly many will not believe this story about Walker's possible behavior as a college student, and of course you are all welcome to your doubt. I personally have doubts about this story, and expect no less from our readers. But this story is currently flooding the Internet, and whether you choose to believe it or not it is going to be the subject of debate around water coolers everywhere tomorrow. ..............
