Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says his opponent in the recall election keeps bringing up the ongoing secret criminal probe because Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett wants to draw the attention away from his own record.
During last night’s recall election debate Barrett called again on Walker to release e-mails connected to the case and reveal who is funding the criminal defense fund the governor has established. Walker said he has shown high levels of integrity his whole life and he will continue in that manner. He repeated that he has been told by investigators he is not the focus of the case.
High-ranking Wisconsin politicians say they will remove photos of their completed ballots now that they have found those postings are against the law. State Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate and St. Croix County Republican Party chairwoman Jesse Garza are not likely to be prosecuted. Wisconsin elections officials are reminding everyone that posting photos of their completed ballots on social networking platforms like Facebook or Twitter violates the law. That law prohibits voters from showing their completed voting form to anyone. It’s set up to keep voters from taking money for voting for or against a candidate or issue, then showing their completed ballot to prove they voted the way they were supposed to vote.
