Desperate Walker Won’t Answer Criminal Probe Questions; Resorts to Wild, Misleading Attacks
MILWAUKEE– Scott Walker has resorted to desperate smears in response to a bombshell report today linking him even closer to the John Doe corruption scandal and falling poll numbers with just one week left before he is ousted as Wisconsin’s governor.
“We learned today that Scott Walker may be the target of the criminal corruption probe, and his response is a sleazy attack against the brave men and women of Milwaukee law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day," said Barrett for Wisconsin Communications Director Phil Walzak. "Walker’s most recent flailing attacks reveal the depth of his desperation as polls released late last week show his narrow lead dwindling. Tom Barrett clearly has the momentum in the closing days of the race for governor, and Walker is desperate to stop it, so he is resorting to outrageous accusations and false attacks. Clearly, Walker is worried.”
Tom Barrett has a long record of success working with law enforcement to keep our streets safe and our neighborhoods secure. It’s why he’s been endorsed by the Wisconsin Professional Police Association and the National Association of Police Organizations.
Two polls released late last week show the race is tightening, including an internal Barrett for Wisconsin survey that shows the race is tied.
