According to a report from the Associate Press, the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign filed a complaint Wednesday with the state’s Government Accountability Board (GAB) alleging ten donors to the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Scott Walker exceeded the $10,000 limit on donations by an individual during a campaign period.
Among those individuals who are alleged to have made contributions in excess of the $10,000 limit is Ted Nickel, who was
appointed earlier this year by Gov. Walker to serve as Wisconsin’s Commissioner of Insurance. According to the complaint, Nickel gave $10,255 to Walker’s gubernatorial campaign between October 2008 and August 2010.
I guess the moral of this story is that the more you donate to Scott Walker, the better the appointment you’ll get in his administration.
