The West Allis PPA has flipped for Barrett.
On Friday, a day after the video was released to the press, the West Allis Professional Police Association, which had endorsed Walker over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in November 2010, announced it was backing Barrett in the June rematch for governor.
“I didn’t think I’d ever be voting Democrat. I know some of my friends feel the same way,” says Tim Fletcher, a detective with the West Allis drug unit and a voting member of the association’s political action committee. “But we’re all saying, ‘How can we vote for him again? We can’t.’”
You’re not alone, detective. You’re not alone.
