I simply must share this piece I read over at Uppity Wisconsin by Jud Lounsbury. Essentially, he was working on Feingold's '98 campaign, and while doing so, saw Scott Walker on many occasions. What he saw was Walker making a career out of being a Pro-Life anti partial birth abortion legislator. Around the same time a recall campaign against Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold over the subject failed. Walker now claims he conveniently can't remember signing the petition. It's an obvious lie.
I've been holding off posting this since yesterday afternoon in the expectation that Mr. Lounsbury would cross post his article here. There's no more time to wait. It's a must read, and I really should just let Jud weave the tale...
Snippets below the fold:
And, because Walker was at these events with Neumann, the issue of partial birth abortion and Feingold's alleged support of it was the focus of Walker's speeches. My specific recollection is that Walker said, on multiple occasions, something in the vein of: We came up a little short with the recall effort, but that effort was not a wasted effort. History will remember it as the first step in Feingold's 1998 defeat.
However, now Walker is making the absurd claim that he was not only not a leader of the recall Feingold / Kohl movement, but told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that didn't even sign the petition, claiming that he has "no memory" of signing the recall petitions against Kohl and Feingold and that "I don't believe that I did."
Except there is evidence: when First Breath Alliance-- the name of the recall group-- was closing down their shop, they had some cash on hand. To whom do you think they gave that money? Yep: Scott Walker
8:45 AM PT: Were the author to post this article, in it's entirety, here I have no doubt it would be at or near the top of the Reclist. If we can get this diary up there for just a little while and drive traffic to the other site we might convince Jud it'd be worth his while to crosspost.
