Received this e-mail today from the Wisconsin Democratic Party:
Unsurprisingly, Scott Walker has skipped town following the release of more than 27,000 pages of emails and court documents that prove he knew about the criminal activity happening all around him.

And he’s refusing to take questions from the press here in Wisconsin or in DC.

Wisconsin deserves answers about what Walker knew and when he knew it. Even his friends over at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said as much yesterday: “Gov. Scott Walker needs to talk. He should hold a news conference to explain how much he knew about a secret email system as Milwaukee County executive. And he needs to let reporters ask as many questions as they want.”

I completely agree with this except for one thing – I think the people should have a chance to ask questions too. So here’s your chance: Click here to submit your question for Scott Walker:

According to his press secretary, Walker will be back in Wisconsin on Monday. So we’ll collect questions until 12:00PM CST on Monday and then deliver them to Walker’s office later that afternoon.

I don’t know if we’ll get any answers but that doesn’t mean we should stop asking questions like:

    What did Scott Walker know about the illegal coordination and when did he know it?
    When did he first instruct his campaign to illegally coordinate with his taxpayer-funded staff?
    Why didn’t Scott Walker instruct his staff to end any and all coordination after Darlene Wink’s illegal activity had been exposed?  
    What is the Walker administration doing today in the state capitol that differs what Scott Walker was doing in Milwaukee? Are there more secret email networks?
    Several staffers implicated in the 2010 John Doe investigation still work for Walker or the state Republican Party – will Walker clean house and call on his own staff to come clean with the public and share their emails?

There are so many more questions that remain. Submit your question by clicking the link below and we’ll deliver it to Scott Walker next Monday:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
