Bizarre, but Telling, 4th of July Facebook Message from Governor Walker

The last I checked, Scott Walker is very dependent upon government.  (And, perhaps, in need of a refresher course on the Revolutionary period of American history.)

In 1993, he won a special election for a seat in the Wisconsin State Assembly.    He was re-elected 4 times.

In 2002, he won a special election to serve as Milwaukee County Executive.  He was re-elected in 2004, with 57% of the vote, and again in 2008, with 59% of the vote.

In 2010, he was elected Governor of Wisconsin, winning 52.2% of the vote.

In 2012, he survived a recall election with 53.1% of the vote.

In other words, "gov't" -- i.e., you and I here in Wisconsin; some of us once, all of us now -- has been paying for his dependency during the past 20 years.

Governor Walker's current salary.

The Governor is covered under section H of this document.

If the Governor is so concerned about his dependency on government, let's work together to make sure that he can focus exclusively on his full-time job after November 4, 2014:  Running for President of the United States.
