Want to know where to go to stuff envelopes for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's campaign? Want a Scott Walker lawn sign? Well, tough. The location is a secret. Not just not publicly listed in an easy-to-find location, but officially a secret that campaign staff will not give up when directly asked:
All we know about the main Walker campaign office is that it lists a P.O. Box in Middleton for campaign donations and other mail.
The governor does give a street address on University Ave. in Middleton for his defense fund, the account out of which he is paying his two criminal defense lawyers as part of the never-ending John Doe investigation of his staff.
Is that where his super secret campaign office is also?
"No," responded Walker campaign spokeswoman Ciara Matthews.
The ostensible reason for the secrecy is that they worry about violent, or at least messy, protesters. Apparently they don't worry about being accessible to supporters. In multiple ways:
His state office does not post his schedule ahead of time, releasing a monthly calendar only to those who ask. And the campaign doesn't announce fundraisers and won't provide a list of previous out-of-state events.Some campaign to represent Wisconsin—Walker doesn't even want Wisconsin voters to know where he is or what he's doing. If Walker wants obscurity, let's give it to him. Contribute $6 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to help defeat Walker.
