CYMI - PATTERN - New Bid-Rigging Concerns Involving Ethically-Troubled Scott Walker


MADISON --Ethically-troubled Scott Walker once again is the subject of bid-rigging concerns, with news that $1 million in taxpayer dollars were directed to a firm just weeks after its director gave $25,000 in campaign cash to Walker.The news was reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which also reported that the Walker donor was also the source of voter suppression billboards that targeted inner-city Milwaukee neighborhoods.

After several weeks of damaging revelations about Walker's own central role in an ongoing criminal corruption probe, the latest news adds to the list of bid-rigging concerns and pay-to-play type allegations involving Walker.For instance, a bid-rigging scheme involving Walker's since-vanished campaign treasurer John Hiller surfaced in the Journal Sentinel's reporting about the John Doe corruption probe.

And the ongoing scandals at Walker's Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation include allegations that officials ignored procurement rules in a bid-rigging scheme. Read more about the latest Scott Walker bid-rigging concerns here.

"From the crimes contained in the John Doe corruption probe to the disturbing news that $1 million in taxpayer dollars were doled out just weeks after Scott Walker pocketed $25,000 in campaign cash, the people of Wisconsin have been treated to an ethical laxity with this governor that has never before been seen.

1. I am beginning to understand what conserative and family values stand are.

This version was not taught in my Democrat family, we were taught to be honest and not stealing from others. BTW, I'm glad my father was not a minister, I would have learned to lie, cheat and steal every chance I had.
