Walker's "Emailgate"

political campaign scandal, Public records &, information access

 The New York Times:   "Even as Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin looks ahead to 2016 and a possible presidential bid, his political past as Milwaukee County executive has come back to haunt him."

"A raft of emails released by a state appeals court judge Wednesday [Feb.19] have Badger State governor Scott Walker facing some of the same questions as his embattled Garden State counterpart, Chris Christie," contends The Fiscal Times  article  Walker's Political Aspirations on Shaky Ground.   "Walker  similarly, is now likely to face questions about how he could have failed to know about illegal activity taking place in his own office--particularly as it was discussed explicitly on emails sent to his personal accounts."

Scott Walker's Pathetic Fall: Another One Bites The Dust!  (Salon, Feb. 20) states,  "A secret email system set up by his staff finally focuses the national media on the governor's ethics woes. Oops."
