Click here to add your name:Scott Walker said he would eliminate cronyism, instead he perfected it.
Continuing the pattern he started in Milwaukee County, Scott Walker is using every trick in the book to find double-digit pay raises for his political cronies.
This time Walker is skirting state limits by transferring his supporters into fake jobs before putting them back into their old jobs with a hefty raise – including a $14,416 pay increase for the economist who cooked the jobs numbers for him right before last year’s recall election.
Scott Walker just keeps using taxpayer money to finance political paybacks for his friends: Add your name to our petition today if you’ve had enough of it:
Now, if there is a silver lining to this cloud, at least the latest round of paybacks went to folks who haven’t been implicated in a criminal corruption probe into the Walker administration.
Which is more than can be said about Walker’s friend Cindy Archer, a central WalkerGate figure who bounced through several six-figure state jobs even after having her house raided with battering rams by the FBI.
