MADISON — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson — who has himself repeatedly been caught lying — is now leveling charges of dishonesty at none other than First Lady Tonette Walker and her son, Alex, who works for Nicholson’s primary opponent, state Sen. Leah Vukmir.


Wisconsin First Lady Tonette Walker offers a very personal reason for supporting Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Leah Vukmir over rival Kevin Nicholson in the contested GOP primary this year.

The first lady says Vukmir’s opponent refused to shake her son Alex’s hand.
“When Alex said to me, ‘I was in a room with another candidate, and he refused to shake my hand,’ I was like, “Really? I mean, really? Seriously?’” Tonette Walker said. “To me, I don’t want someone in politics, and someone who’s going to represent me and the State of Wisconsin in politics, if he doesn’t have the common decency to extend his hand, to shake his hand with a young man.”

Nicholson’s campaign said it had no idea what Ward or Tonette Walker were talking about.

“No amount of petty infighting, name-calling, or accusations of dishonesty can change that fact that Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir are running on a deeply unpopular, right-wing agenda that’s all about selling out hardworking Wisconsinites to help corporate special interests and billionaire megadonors get even richer,” said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 U.S. Senate race.

    let the two right wing nut duck it out.

  2. Terry says:

    Lying Nicholson, Sleazy career politician Scott Walker and the hideous harpy Vukmir should all go far far away, if for no other reason than to allow the rest of us sane, thoughtful, intelligent people who actually work for a living to finally not have to breathe the noxious, foul stink that comes from their corrupt, putrid stinking bodies.

    Dump Walker
    Fresh air for everyone!
