Help Me Find Scott Walker

Folks—I’ve got a problem. 

I’m going through Gov. Scott Walker’s use of the state plane this year.

And I’m scratching my head over his whereabouts on March 14, 2013.

The plane left Madison with a security guy and Walker’s deputy chief of staff, Scott Matejov.

They flew to Milwaukee, where they picked up the governor and his traveling press aide, Chris Walker (no relation, I’m told).

They then flew to Eau Claire, where Walker visited Premium Waters to announce its expansion and addition of 35 jobs. 

The crew flew back to Milwaukee, and then the governor and his security guy flew back to Madison.

So, what was Walker doing in Milwaukee?

During the noon hour he attended a $250-a-plate political fundraiser with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at the University Club

I don’t know if he was in Eau Claire before or after the fundraiser.

I don’t know if he had any official business in Milwaukee that day. I can't find any information anywhere, and his spokesman hasn't responded to my question.

I do know that he was furthering his political ambitions. That’s a given.

So help me out. If you know why Walker was in Milwaukee—other than to Hoover up some right-wing money and pose for holy pictures with Christie—could you let me know in the comments section?

I would really hate to think that state taxpayers footed the bill for this junket.

Help me find Walker, OK?




The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
