MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements on comments by Scott Walker’s Republican Governors Association related to the 2018 gubernatorial campaign.

“The November 2018 election is more than 600 days away, but for Scott Walker political campaigning is a never-ending story. Career politician Scott Walker uses our tax dollars as his campaign piggy bank and for six years we’ve paid the price for him to galavant across the country raising campaign funds and selling out our state to the highest bidder.

“Scott Walker ran for office before he could legally rent a car and has spent nearly his entire adult life drawing salary and getting health care for himself and his family from taxpayers. If he wants to remind people of that, he can, but all the campaign money in the world won’t undo the damage he has caused Wisconsin over his 24 years of canoodling in his government hammock with anyone with a checkbook.”

One thought on “Candidate Scott Walker: The Neverending Story”

  1. myfivecents says:

    Yes, he does use our tax dollars to keep getting elected to public office. He gets donations from the wealthy and corporations and once in office he makes sure they get the most generous tax breaks and tax credits so that they will donate more money for his next election. He is giving away our tax dollars that are then given back to him to stay in power to give them more tax breaks. At what point do you have to stop giving tax breaks and credits to maintain a viable government for the people.
