During his last campaign for exec, we learned that Walker had broken his pledge to have all of his appointees sign waivers foregoing lucrative pension bonuses, and covered up the lack of waivers when questioned about it. Dave Umhoefer, the reporter who broke the last scandal, found that one, too.
Now we find that Walker has continued to allowed questionable if not illegal pension buybacks, fattening some employees' benefits, since he's been in office.
Others call for him to come clean and explain what he knew and when, and why he did what he did. But not McBride.
Still marching to Scott Walker's drummer, McBride is the exception. She notes the new information and asks:
Now will liberals and the MSM stop blaming Scott Walker for Milwaukee County's budget problems?As she would say: Um, no.
Walker's been in office for 5 years, busily pointing fingers in every direction but his own and refusing to take responsibility for anything that's happened on his watch. The county's disastrous series of budget crises, about to explode again, forced him out of the race for governor. Even Walker didn't try to blame Tom Ament for that.
